I used to be one of those private people who didn't want anyone to know her business. That was before I got published and became a celebrity.
Now anyone who wants to know anything about me or my personal life can either a) read my books b) follow my blog c) stalk me on Facebook and Twitter. And don't forget Goodreads. I'm there too!
And occasionally I update my website, just in case there's not enough of the goings on of Karen Jones Gowen at the other venues.
All news about me written by me.
Thanks to social media everyone can be a celebrity like me. Here's how: Just get the ball rolling on two or more social media sites, ask your friends to join in, and create a media blitz on your very own time frame about your very own self. Or something like that.
My laptop knows I'm famous. I only need to type in the first letter of my name and all the url's relating to me and my online activities show up. Clearly I'm the most talked about person in the universe.
Thank you, dear Internet. Because of you, I can open my computer each morning and see that everyone knows my name, breathlessly awaiting to hear what I'll say next. It's so awesome being a celebrity.
