Let’s not waste any time at all. We’re going to kick off this week’s Author Tweets of the Week with a moving video.

This video is a great way to kick things off this week. So moving! Like I said on Facebook, if this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye and make you want to hug your Mom, either you’re heartless or your Mom was.

 

 

Groucho Marx has some wonderful lines. This one from @alphabetsuccess is one I actually hadn’t heard before. Nothing like throwing a zinger at someone and then kicking ’em when they’re down.

If you don’t follow @mattdusk and you enjoy being inspired, well what the heck are you doing?! His twitter feed is filled with tweets like this one.

 

 

 

 

This post makes me giggle every time I see it. I’m not sure exactly what it is

 

 

 

 

 

These tweets have been around for a minute, but I just stumbled upon them this week. I got a good laugh out of them. Here’s a few more:

Well those were fun.

Here’s a more serious and practical tweet I enjoyed this week.

 

 

This is so true. If you’re too much of an asshole to love someone else because you want to be selfless, then love them because studies show you will live a happier, healthier, more productive life.

So there, you dicks, be nicer BECAUSE you’re a dick, not because you’re trying to be nice. You’ll benefit from it. (I bet you didn’t think someone could turn a spiritual message into a half-encouragement / half-rebuke of jerks. That’s what I do. I make the impossible possible.)

 

 

Now let’s do some dancing! It’s the weekend fools! Let loose! Kick back! Dance like this guy!

 

 

If you’re out of breath, then you’re doing it right. Great dancing.

Let’s wrap it up with this. I have a two-year old that is nearing three. She loves to read with us. I adore it. It’s amazing. read to your kids, friends!

 

 

 

 

And with that, have a wonderful weekend! My second child is approaching this world rapidly. He’s due anyway now and the next time we share tweets together it might be with spit up all over my keyboard.

Keep writing! Have a wonderful weekend.

Author Tweets of the Week (7-22)

 

It has been nearly a month since my last Tweets of the Week. A month!?! Wow. It has been a busy summer, that’s for sure! And it’s only about to get busier for this moonlighting writer/blogger because child number two will be welcomed into the world in the next few weeks. Feel free to get excited for me! (Or tired for me, whichever you prefer.)

I hope you found time to read or write this week. I had a very eventful week myself. My book finally made it from the ebook world into the world of print! I was excited by the news. Almost immediately, though, Amazon removed 55 of my reader reviews. None of them were bought, traded, coerced, or from friends. You can imagine my frustration and disappointment while also being excited about my book being in print.

So let’s begin this week’s installment of Tweets of the Week with my own tweet from this morning:

 

 

I will keep you all apprised of how (or whether) this gets resolved. I fully understand Amazon’s interest in keeping reviews honest and independent, but it’s kind of silly to expect authors this day in age not to engage their readers. Hell, even Stephen King is actively engaging his readers on social media these days. I’m sure I’ll write more about it next week.

So enough about me…

 

 

Maybe I like this tweet just because I’m about to have another child. Maybe I like it because my own father is a firm believer that a man’s highest goals in life should be being a father and a husband (if you are a father or a husband). Maybe it’s just because @DiversityDad reached out to me on twitter and his exuberance for being a father is admirable and contagious. Whatever the reason, I enjoyed this tweet.

 

 

 

This is my own repost on Facebook. You probably didn’t even catch it. I didn’t. Read it again.

Well, writer friend Assaph Mehr did and let me hear it!

Dammit! At least I had a quick-witted response back to him. I’m a writer. I never said I was a proofreader!

 

 

I can’t like this one enough. Thank you Chuck Emerson.

 

 


I don’t think this needs any commentary.

 

 

 

And we’re back to where we began. This is from a few weeks ago, but clearly it’s on my mind again today. Oh Amazon, the 10,000 foot gorilla with obscure algorithms and review removal policies. Sigh.

 

Keep writing away friends! Have a wonderful weekend.
