Ah, the busy, glamorous life of an author. Aside from napping, shoveling snow, and discovering cats trapped inside things you wouldn’t think cats could get themselves into, I am a very busy man. A few things:
FACEBOOK: Yea, verily, I have given in and created a Facebook account. I remember about 3 years ago everyone was telling me I “had” to have a MySpace account, or it would be like I was invisible. So I created a MySpace account. Admittedly, I ignored it and to this day I am too lazy to even delete it, but mysteriously no one cares whether I have a MySpace account any more. Now I am told I must have a Facebook account or I am doomed to obscurity. So I have a Facebook account. I’ll try to pay more attention to it. I’m there as “Jeffrey Daniel Xavier Somers”. Come friend me if you’re brave.
TWITTER: And again: After everyone else in the world has already done so, I finally have set up a Twitter account. Mainly I did this for use at the New York Comic Con in February, so I can tweet out what I’m doing and where I am in case anyone is interested. But in the mean time I’m going to start tweeting a short story there once or twice a day, starting 1/26. That’s right, 140 characters at a time. Why not? So feel free to follow me if you’re at all interested. Maybe someday I’ll start tweeting things like “Putting on pants” or “Woke up in someone else’s house again, please send aspirin and pants” or, simply, “pants!” but only if I get the sense that you folks want such personal tidbits. My guess is: You don’t.
THE ETERNAL PRISON HAS A WEB SITE: Not much there yet – it’s really a glorified placeholder – but it’s there. Check out http://www.eternalprison.com. I intend to have some real actual content up there in the next few months – some fun, interesting things. As opposed to boring, irritating things.
So there you have it: I am somewhat less uncool than I used to be. Or so I have led myself to believe.
