The Befuddlement of Twitter

I know I’m not a big twitterer, tweeter, tweeker (no that’s something else) , whatever it is in the twitterverse.  I can tell you this, I am getting the hang of Twitter for sure.  Ok i lie, I am TRYING to get the hang of it. I attempt not to follow too many people that are like my favorite celebrities that I know are snarky and have the best comments.  Its so, so, so hard.  I try to keep it open to a few and make sure that I get the right information for my other author friends and maybe help spread the word.  That’s not too bad.

But I really want to get into it.  I am loving interacting with people, like I love interacting with people here on the blogs and I love stalking a few too. shhhhhhh don’t tell.  Twitter is just a little odd duck.  I barely get the right characters and even then I magically become invisible.  I’ve been trying to get a little thing going.  It’s not too hard, and honestly I am assuming that it will take a while. Understandable.  I plan on giving a free e-book of Rise of a Queen when I reach 50, and probably other times as well.  To me it’s not about sales.  To me its about letting people take a peek at my baby and realize that its not like anything else you’ve ever read.  It’s not full of angsty teenagers, but its not filled with a world full of more traditional Nosferatu style vampires.  The lead character is a female and she’s not all about living her life only to please her man (I take that back, but if you’ve read it you understand, if you haven’t you’ll see.  There is a purpose) . Ugh I hated those “historical romances” my grandmother paraded around with all the time. Love is different and women totally rule this book but its viscous enough for a guy to get really into it, I know a few who have mailed me just for that purpose.

So now that i’m here telling you I’m not trying to sell my book while I discuss it I realize that didn’t go over all too well.  Oops.  See that’s what happens when Drano isn’t working, or my lovely friend calls a brain fart.  Long one.

I’ve had a very exciting few weeks after being on a radio show, seeing a bunch of old friends, may or may not move over the summer (big stress factor but hey that’s life) and I will be seeing of one my old friends again next weekend!!!! So I’m here blogging instead of writing because its something better to do than listen to the rain and try my hardest to figure out how to grow a few characters until they bloom bright.

But I do promise you this.  Anyone who has read Rise of a Queen is going to absolutely LOVE the dynamics, and somewhat irony that happens between Melinda and Emma I can promise you that.

Okay enough enough enough.  Twitter. yes Twitter.  That’s what I was talking about, I think.  Oh goodness maybe a sparkly something came at me and I got distracted.  That’d be the worst.

The more followers I get, the more tweets I put out, the more you can find out about me and my oddness and how more like at least one of you out there even if you think “gasp! I thought I was the only one” and you never know. I might find a great PS3 gaming partner in the process 😉  anybody up for killing zombies?

    Otherwise known as my house.  The one I painstakingly sweated tears and blood to get in time to move, the one that brought me to a better place to live, the one that brings old charm into a beautifully old neighborhood, and the best place I have ever rented.  Mind you, this place was built […]

    The Death of a Character: To Mourn or Not to Mourn

    I was asked a question earlier by someone I find both wise, endearing, and completely talented in all that she does.  Her question has been bouncing around in my mind and I realize that my answer to her was very swift and two dimensional so maybe I should expand a little on the subject.  The […]
