Learning New Technology, LOL!!!
I have finally come to the new age. I did not think I would ever convert to the new technology. As my son says, Oh, Mom Come on now. "You need to learn to text."
About two months ago, I finally broke down. I learned to text.
To really put me over the age. When I traveled to Greenville, SC. I lost my phone. I am a employee of Walmart. I saw that Family Mobile had a great deal for Walmart employees, compared to Straight Talk. When, I was in Greenville, South Carolina. I lost my phone. I was not about to travel back home, four hours without a phone. I went to Walmart, thinking I would replace my phone. Instead I decided to sign up with Walmart's plan. It costs me less, with a data plan, and texting included. This was less money than Straight Talk.
I have now come to the new age. You would think someone that has a book blog would already know these details. But, no I don't.But, when my other job, told me that I need to learn text. I decided to break down. I have come a long way baby!! I know, just learned to use the camera, and posted my pix on my facebook page. I am on top of the world. I felt like I was out of the loop. The picture above, is my first pix,on my fb page. I am on top of the world right now.
My next feat is to learn about Twitter. I don't understand how it works. I have a account. But, what gets me, is that I arrive in the middle of the conversation and don't know how to get in on the conversation. Is it because I need to be using my phone rather than my computer to talk? I don't know. We will have to see if I can figure out my next project.
I am so honored that Chris Bohjalian used my picture to promote his newest novel, The Light of the Ruins. . It won't be out till April. But, I just received my galley copy of his new book. Love the cover, and goes well with my kitchen decor, don't you think?? You can see the picture above.
One thing I am wondering if he is going through a mid life crisis?? LOL!! He had delved for years, as the king of, what I call social commentary. He recently switched to horror, and now to historical fiction. I think your fans can take the changes of your genre to something else. What's next, fantasy???
