Rom-Con 2014, Here I Come!
Yesterday, I did something exciting! I signed up for Rom-Con! I am so freaking excited! A chance to get to spend time with other romance writers, meet readers and have some fun!
Along with being excited, I am so nervous!
I am very shy when I meet strangers. I don't do it well. I turn red, stammer and generally make a fool of myself.
The general public thinks writing is a solitary thing. That may have been true in Hemingway's time, or Shakespeare's. But nowadays, writing, if you want to sell anything, requires a social media presence. I've grown very weary of it all, honestly.
The constant selling on Twitter, for instance. I've yet to see a Tweet that isn't buy my book. I'm guilty of it, too. And Facebook? A CONSTANT barrage of politics and gun control.
I wish I could just hole up at home, write and become successful. But until that happens, I'll be around Facebook. Heading over there now, actually.
See you at Rom-Con 2014!
