Who Are the Best Selling Authors on Instagram?

First there was bookstagram, and now, authorstagram. (Admittedly, not as catchy as the first, but we just made it up.) In honor of National Author Day, here’s the top-selling writers on the platform right now.

#Repost @randomhouse ใƒปใƒปใƒป We love @deankoontzofficial's #WritersRoutine ๐Ÿ“ธ almost as much as we love his books (A LOT)! His latest, THE SILENT CORNER, is on sale this Tuesday. What would surprise people the most about your routine? My teachers would be stunned to hear I have a routine. I was a slacker. When I fell in love with our beautiful language and storytelling, I found purpose. I get up at 5:00 and work at least an 11-hour day, 6 days a week. I rarely eat lunch. Food at midday makes me sleepy. I get a golden-retriever fix 6 times a day. I never set off fireworks in the office. I sing along with background music if itโ€™s playing, but I never get up to dance. If a scene gets too heavy philosophically, I remind myself not to take myself too seriously; I keep a mirror nearby, because one glance at my reflection throws me off my high horse. What do you eat/drink to keep yourself charged throughout a writing day? My diet is high-protein, low-carb. Breakfast: a cup of fat-free cottage cheese, a 6-ounce fruit-flavored Yoplait Light in the same bowl; sweeten with Splenda; add fresh strawberries or blueberries; sometimes a few ounces of chocolate milk; stir; eat; a very yummy gruel. During the day, a handful of Marcona almonds or peanuts. Caffeine-free Diet Pepsi. Now and then a wild indulgence in caffeine with Coke Zero. At the end of the day, Caymus cabernet sauvignon. #deankoontz #thesilentcorner #writer #writersofinstagram #bookstagram #igbooks #dogsofinstagram #labrador #goldenretriever #servicedog
