The Times Quoted My Tweet!

Today has Awesomesauce spread all over it!

First, I found out I had made it onto the Klout Top 100 list for the UK.


Then I noticed I was on the same score as Peter Jones from that Dragon's Den programme on the telly!

Obviously - at this point - I headed to Twitter to tell all my chums about my great news, only to see a tweet claiming that I had been quoted on page 19 of....The Times!

Hubby returned from the local shop, I turned to page 19 and sure enough... 

Just when I thought the day could not improve, the postie arrived and this fell through my front door:

A minute ago, I noticed the Australian Prime Minister has just started to follow me. How the heck did he find out about me?  Today is just getting curiouser and curiouser.  What a great day!

P.S. You can follow any or all of the Top 100 here -

Wow! Rebecca what a great day! I was debating whether or not I should by a lottery ticket today because a two different fellow authors featured me on their blogs today, but you were quoted in The Times! That is awesome!

Holy cow, Rebecca. You are a celebrity now. Quoted in The Times? Prime Ministers following your tweets? That is awesome. I hope you take a moment to do a happy dance.

Thanks guys! Great news Alissa. Well done. Eric, I've been doing happy dances all day. Thanks for commenting :) xxx

General point:

Rather than put up a new post, I thought I'd leave it here. People keep asking about when the first book is coming out and in which formats. There are a few technical and contractual issues which might affect how and when I can launch the book. Things are changing very fast. It may make more sense for me to release digital versions only to start with, and physical copies at a later stage. All the donkey-work is done. Now it's technicalities.

Will let you all know as soon as there is something to tell, but don't be surprised if I just post a 'published now' post one day. The steady countdown to an established launch date just might not happen with this first one. :)

Hi Charlie!

Mad isn't it? Couldn't believe it when I saw it on Twitter. :)
