If you follow me on Twitter @DianeCapri, you know I tweet an eclectic set of items that catch my fancy. Often the subjects are movies, television, and books. Sometimes, foodie and travel bits amuse or inform. The art of writing and the business of publishing are perpetual favorites, natch. I retweet blogs and items that catch my fancy. If it interests me and might interest you, I pass it along every day.
No time to follow me on Twitter this week? Tweets you wanted to follow now too hard to find in the Tweet-o-sphere? No worries.
Here are a few of the week’s best tweets you may have missed:
Shannon Esposito offers a list of great rules for self-care this busy holiday season: Rules That Shape Us
Nancy Nicholson reminds us to open our eyes and get curious: Blind or Do You See?
In the “reading is far from dead” department this week, the Wall Street Journal published this inspiring story about Darcie Chan’s amazing success: How I Became a Best-selling Author
Darcie’s story caused Renee Pawlish to share more on the topic: What Indie Authors Know–The Wall Street Journal is Behind the Times
And the Amazing Ann Patchett opened her own Independent bookstore in Nashville, Parnassus Books
Television featured prominently this week, too.
We learned that the more televison programming seems to change since 1951, from Lucy and Dragnet to Two & half Men and Law & Order the more it stays the same: The More Things on the Small Screen Change
Sadly, we lost two wonderful fiction icons this week, too. Harry Morgan, who most of us know as M*A*S*H’s Colonel Potter and Joseph Farrell, the man behind some of the most successful Hollywood endings ever.
During the gift giving season, books make the best presents. Consider these by Michael Connelly, John LeCarre, Paul Levine or maybe you’d like to try one of mine? This week, I tweeted the news that a personal electronic copy of Carly’s Conspiracy was free for 24 hours. New reader Mary Post did just that and wrote: “Hi Diane. I did get a copy of this and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll be getting more Judge Carson books, I’m sure. Thank you.”
While that promotion is closed now, Carly’s Conspiracy is available as a free read through the Amazon Prime lending program for the next 90 days. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, Carly’s Conspiracy is exclusively available at Amazon for purchase at the reduced price of $2.99.
Surely, I missed some great tweets this week, too. Were there any you’d like to pass along? Please do. I love to keep up with you all!
Follow me @DianeCapri. And tune in next week for another Best of the Tweets that ‘Twas!
