[livejournal.com profile] melydia recently told her Twitter pals about Concord Free Press, which does something neat -- tell them about a recent charity donation you've made, and they'll send you a free book.

I thought this idea was pretty cool, so I threw caution to the wind and mentioned it to @neilhimself -- that's Neil Gaiman. The Neil Gaiman.

A few minutes ago I received a phone call from [livejournal.com profile] sheikah telling me that I needed to get on Twitter RIGHT NOW because NEIL GAIMAN IS TALKING TO YOU.

Sure enough, Neil tweeted back at me, saying it was a good idea, and providing the link to all of his readers.

Neil Gaiman has acknowledged my existence. I can cross that off my lifetime goal list with considerable relish.

Neil Gaiman posted this on his Twitter this afternoon, and requested that his readers pass on the information. It's a damn good cause, so here I go.

The 14-year-old niece of Frank Frisina, who is a creator on the webcomic "Life's a Bluff," has been missing since Friday night. There is no reason to think she's run away, she took nothing with her, and her status is officially 'missing.' Her uncle, who is her legal guardian, is utterly heartsick.

This is, of course, being posted on Amber Alert and all those good things, but I try to help where I can. Details on the situation, including photographs of the girl (pretty child), can be found here:

UPDATE: She's been found and is home safe. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] kobrin, for the update!

I'm getting a kick out of Twitter.

I'm stalking four celebrities on there in addition to all my friends -- Neil Gaiman, Stephen Fry, Tom Felton, and Wil Wheaton. I'd heard that Wil's a bit of a dork and he seems like someone I'd get on with, which is the main reason I started following him.

Short while ago, he posts that he found two new, good reviews of stuff he's published and that it made for a great start to his day. Hey, I'm a writer, I can appreciate that. Out of curiosity, I click the link for the review of his book Just a Geek. Turns out, the writer of the review is none other than [livejournal.com profile] melydia!

I immediately "tweet" her to let her know that he's posted this, since I can see in her profile that she doesn't follow him on there, and she goes and leaves him a message and the whole thing was just lulzy and fun. :D

Technically, I could petition to have my name added to the list of minor celebrities, in the author section. I have written a book. But given that it's a book that next to no one has ever heard of, this seems a bit impolitic. I'll just wait until I've published some fiction. (Wrote a prologue yesterday...) That's the reason I'm using my real name on there instead of Lady Norbert or something. Someday I shall be internet famous! Or famous-er, depending on your point of view.
