But I Like Really Wrote a Book!
I am so excited to announce my book But You Like Really Dated?!: The Celebropedia of Hollywood Hookups is being released this October by It Books an imprint of HarperCollins!
Thank you all for following, sharing and laughing at But You’re Like Really Pretty!
This book is awesome and you should buy 100 copies right now. I was reading the manuscript on the subway last night and getting great horrified looks from the passengers as they tried to peep at it. So damn funny.
My lovely followers, please follow this blog immediately!
Social Media, you’re doing it right KitKat and Oreo!
The only problem with this is…OREO WINS EVERY TIME OBVIOUSLY
Fantastic use of social media. Well played.
The book publishing conference season is in full swing and “discovery” is the buzzword du jour, driven by the curious notion that, with the decline of physical bookstores, readers supposedly can’t easily find books online. There’s even new research that claims “frequent book buyers visit sites like Pinterest and Goodreads regularly, but those visits fail to drive actual book purchases.”
Unfortunately, in the spirit of “lies, damned lies, and statistics,” that research is skewed partly by its authors’ underlying agenda (“Physical retail works if you protect it.”), but more importantly, by its flawed methodology, specifically its dependence on what’s known as last-click attribution, wherein the final interaction that led to a sale is given 100% credit for the conversion, ignoring the realities of multiple touchpoints and myriad potential influencers.
Guy covers a lot of important points as well.
I’ve seen my share of “fake geek girl” shaming, and just thought having a Fairy Gamer Momma to come to the rescue would be nice. I know they exist, I’ve met plenty who are amazing and could beat my ass at any version of Mario Kart. Give the Gamer Momma in your life a big hug! :D
