A quick couple of words that are too many for Twitter–

So I spent about eighteen months QQing about how I didn’t want to get on social media to try to promote my first novel, because blah blah reasons and LiveJournal stole my lunch money when I was a kid.

But I want people to read my damned book, so I had to suck it up.

And just from making some fairly brief stabs at putting myself out there–

Jonathan Van Ness from Gay of Thrones retweeted me! And followed me! Is it uncouth to brag about this? I have no idea! Because I am a dork!

This is why you should love Jonathan Van Ness:


And this:


And the hair. God, the hair.

And then an author I don’t even know retweeted my lonely little tweet announcing the pre-order of my book. So, yeah, right now the Internet seems 0.5% less scary.

And then while I was typing the last sentence, another author I don’t know did the same thing.

And then while I was typing that last sentence, another retweet came in, and I think I’m going to have to go have a xanax and a lie down.

Thank you, Internet folks.
