BookTok on TikTok for steamy romance lovers!

by Stephanie Queen

A lot of people think TikTok is all about dancing and goofy videos, but not exactly. If you’re on TikTok, you might agree. Like Facebook, Twitter and IG, there are communities created by hashtags. And no other community enjoys popularity more than #BookTok. My theory on #BookTok’s popularity is that it’s dominated by people who are naturally creative. So naturally they take the outstanding tools TikTok has to offer and run wild.

Speaking of wild… #BookTok is also dominated by steamy and spicy romance readers and writers. They’ve found the perfect outlet for their very special interest.

If you haven’t experienced #BookTok, let’s say it bombards you with all kinds of book stuff. You’ll enjoy the amazing creativity of videos about hot romance books, characters and readers and authors who are funny, intriguing, clever and downright effective. After all, if it’s true that a picture is worth a thousand words, then…

A video must be worth a million words.

And there are a million ways to do a video. Want to see some examples?

Here’s an example of a recent TikTok I posted about an upcoming book, a straight forward teaser using a voice-over.

Here’s an example of a fun author video about writing using lip-synching.

Finally, here’s an excerpt teaser using text and flipping pages for some action.

I think you get the idea. #BookTok is an endless rabbit hole of teasers, humor, book recommendations and all manner of creative fun and games.

If you don’t already have a TikTok account, you might want to give it a try, or if you do, let’s connect!

Follow me on TikTok @stephaniequeenauthor and let me know what you think of my videos.
