So I’m really thrilled to be a part of the Twitter Fiction Festival this year. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen me tweeting about it like crazy since, oh I don’t know, the second they invited me? Seriously. So psyched.
What’s the Twitter Fiction Festival?
Well, it’s a celebration of short fiction that runs on Twitter from March 12th through the 16th, and features a number of fantastic authors I love and admire. I get to join writers like Gail Carriger, Emma Straub, Jim Gaffigan, Julia Fierro, Elizabeth Fremantle… the list goes on. Even Quirk authors Ian Doescher and Ben H. Winters are involved.
As for my story, I’m going to be sharing a story with the festival on Thursday, March 13th, from noon until 1pm. The Twitter Fiction Festival account (@twfictionfest) and Twitter Books account (@twitterbooks) will be cross promoting the story during that time, and afterwards, I’ll share the entire thing with you.
It’s an 8-bit children’s story, with illustrations by the incredibly talented Juan Carlos Solon. I’m not going to dish out what the story’s about until I tell it, but here’s a sneak peek:
8-bit Mom and son, sharing a hug. You’ll have to join me on Thursday, March 13th, at noon, to see the rest!
Now, I also recently hit 5,000 followers on Twitter (what!), and figured I’d celebrate that and promote the festival with a little giveaway. You can enter the Rafflecopter below. Three winners will score a copy of The Geek’s Guide to Dating, an audiobook, and a poster! I’ve only got a few dozen of those posters left at the Quirk office, so after this, they are gone.
Thanks, and see you all on the Internet on March 13th. Read more
