…I’m like, OH MY GOD!
Now, it’s totally childish of me, right? But when I tweet @ an author and they REPLY, it’s like a crush or a superstar has noticed me!!! Oh my God, it’s Ricky Schroeder all over again! (Yes, now you know how old I am.)
You know, Jodi Picoult complimented my Tinkerbell necklace at a reading once. (I’ve never taken it off… eh, just kidding. Kinda.)
So, Ricky Schroeder = Jodi Picoult?
Okay, so my presence on Twitter is reallllly small…. I only have 75 followers or something. But I throw an @ at some authors sometimes, just ’cause… I want to be them! Wait, I mean, because I like their work!
Check out this massive list of authors who OBVIOUSLY think I’m amazing:
Jay Asher @LisaRosenman Have fun at book club!
Lisa See @LisaRosenman Very cool! Do you know I visit book clubs by Skype and speaker phone? Let me know if you’d like me to join in when you meet.
Jodi Meadows @LisaRosenman Yes! I finished! And now the cookies are GONE. (Which is a tragedy.)
Mignon Fogarty @LisaRosenman Thanks! (I know. It’s *so* close.)
Elana Johnson @LisaRosenman It was awesome! Take them.
Cheryl Rainfield @LisaRosenman Good for you. We need lots of books that talk about painful things, encourage healing, hope.
That’s 6 actual authors that I admire! I have really arrived, yeah?
So… maybe someday someone will be excited that this author they admire (me, of course) will repsond to them on Twitter. It could happen, right?
