Celebs in Writing Distress: Jessica Alba



Dear Lone Ranger

I've just finished my first novel and I'm considering using Twitter to help raise my profile to help book sales. I see a lot of writers are using it - do you recommend it? How do I use it? Help Lone Ranger!

Dear Jessica

Twitter is like sending messages by smoke signals. Smoke Signals are used to transmit news, signal danger, or gather people to a common area, much like Twitter.
However, I'd recommend you forget Twitter and stand in the middle of Times Square in that cowgirl outfit, set fire to a pile of your books and let the smoke twirl around you in a dry ice effect. That will get you noticed.

I love it! The Lone Ranger telling Jessica Alba how to get noticed. And I like that dry ice/smoke signal effect much better than Twitter. The LR is always right. Jessica Alba would get noticed, same as Anne Enright.

Oh yes, and if you get a bad review, don't even think about tweeting about it aka Alice Hoffmann...
