Well, not FAMOUS famous. But Kiersten White, debut author of Paranormalcy, is doing a Q&A series of posts and today she selected my question :)
Isn't the internet a funny thing? When viewed one way, it appears that social networking isolates people. Of course, they LET it isolate them from their physically social lives of families and friends (here's a hint, let it ADD to your life, not BECOME your life).
And in another sense, social networking brings people together. Just look how we've all found each other here. We have similar interests, most of us are writers hoping to be published, some are published hoping for staying power... we are networking, not only to learn from each other, but to support each other. To buy each other's books when they come out, read them, review them, spread the word!!
Congrats to Kiersten on her debut! I picked up a copy earlier this week, and so far I'm loving it.
Also, congrats to Hilary Wagner for her debut middle grade book, Nightshade City! Even though the release date is in October, B&N already has it out on their shelves, so I'll be sure to pick that up soon.
Happy Friday and three day weekend! :)
