"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
Hi Janet! That is funny! I blogged about you today and my love for all things shark: http://middlegradeninja.blogspot.com/2010/06/book-of-week-ivys-ever-after-by-dawn.html
A perfect commentary on social marketing for writers. And, oh yes, funny!Thanks!
I wish he'd loan me a thousand...
secret's out: use a dumb phrase as your book title too funny, thx janet :)
Remember the comic about the "alot." Well, her blog went viral right around that time. She was gaining about 1000 followers a week. She now seems to be in a meltdown. I guess there is such a thing as too much success (not sure about that, I would have to try it to be sure . . .)Terriwww.whyifearclowns.com
Man, that definitely has to be bittersweet. To think and wonder how maybe all those people really like your work, only to discover that most of them don't know who you are.I will have to think up some insanely clever phrase to use as a book title. Shame that most of my titles seem to be one or two words...
Ooh let me have some of them. My new YA fantasy novel, 'Lethal Inheritance,' page has 28 fans. Mind you it's only been up a couple of weeks and the book isn't published yet. You can read ch1 if you like, on this page -http://publishersearch.wordpress.com/lethal-inheritance/ On the home page there are postings about writing, challenges of the writer's life and getting published.
His response to his sudden "popularity" made me chuckle. I don't read all that much non-fiction, but I may have to check out that book now. And maybe fan his book's page, too. :D
