Yes, my friends, it’s time I came clean and admitted: I’ve been forced to make a Faustian bargain with the Dark Forces of Social Media. I have a Twitter account. I put it off as long as I could, but when you are trying to promote something, as I am with my books, you sort of have to explore every avenue that you can.
Long-time readers must be wondering why I’ve been so gung-ho about this book business lately. Well, it’s always been my dream to be a writer, and over the past year and a half, things have happened that made me realize it’s best not to put off trying stuff you always wanted to do–you never know what’s going to happen to you, so it’s best to take every opportunity.
Sorry, I know that sounds as corny as a Hallmark movie; but what can I say? It’s actually true.
Twitter is, by the way, every bit as annoying to use as it is to read. I am rather verbose, and Twitter does not lend itself to forming even complete sentences. “Hey, look! A thing!” is about all it can express. So far, using it has done nothing to alter my original assessment of it.
