Taking the Literary World by Storm, Yeah Right...

I've decided to take the literary world by storm.  To do this I will:

  • Out think the publishing industry by writing the next international bestseller.  This book will have all the right elements - vampires, wizards and a revenge-seeking rape victim out to make a fashion statement.   

  • Make readers fall in love with my characters to the point that restraining orders may be necessary.  I haven't done my job if my fictional characters are not being stalked by the delusional.

  • Rack up jaw-dropping book reviews from critics, book bloggers and most importantly - readers.  This will probably involve sitting in a Denny's doling out my life savings to shady characters who look nothing like their online avatars. 

  • Build my Twitter "tribe" to a gazillion followers through much Charlie Sheen like behavior.  And yes, this will involve myself, a machete and a pair of worn out porn stars (unfortunately, from the 1950's).

Once I have accomplished all this, SUCCESS will be mine!

Right...

Seriously, this post has me rolling on the floor. I'll be watching you,and if your plans work out, I'm going to follow your example.

That sounds familiar... I didn't think I'd produced anything good enough for you to steal yet but apparently I was wrong.

You better let me be the judge of what's good enough for me to steal.

And yes, I am known for "pretty big talkin'".

Oh yes oh yes oh yes. The recipe for success or alternatively, you in a straightjacket, is surely contained in these fine words. Thank you, it's all perfectly clear to me now.

I'm thinking that the whole "dress up as my character" thing will suffice as writer success! :)

Please, whatever you happens, do not take any advice from me on anything. I'm not as reputable as one might imagine.
