About that book deal….

So, I got it!  I am still a bit in shock, and totally over the moon with excitement!  Now, I just have to actually write a book.  That shouldn’t be a problem because it’s not like I’m busy with my five kids, or our business, or the house remodel, or life in general.  So, yeah, I’m sure I’ll knock that book out in no time!  If you think of it, say a little prayer for me. 

Part of the deal is that I need to maintain my blog, and maybe even start twittering or tweeting, or whatever the proper term is. Twittering sounds like I’ve been drinking a bit, and tweeting sounds like I’m a bird in distress.  I attempted to set up a twitter account a couple of months ago, but unfortunately someone had already claimed the name Gingeretta, which totally ticked me off.  For years I have been the one and only Gingeretta in the entire world, (trust me on this) and now someone else has the audacity to claim the name!  So, if you think of a clever twitter title for me, let me know!

Hopefully, I can build my readership back up by blogging regularly.  So, check back often, or subscribe on the sidebar. If I set up a twitter account, I will let you know!  And when my book gets published, you won’t have check my blog because you will hear me SHOUTING IT FROM THE ROOFTOP!!!
