Last week, I ended up in a Twitter feud with someone I didn’t know. Her message happened to be re-tweeted by someone in my stream. This person was a follower of supermodel Kathy Ireland and so am I. In a crazy turn of events, the “feud” gave me an opportunity to promote my new ebook, Don’t Ask and I Won’t Have to Lie.
Here’s how the conversation went: Ireland Follower: ”Liars turn fantasy into facts and are FOOLS!”
Me: “ Lies are NOT always facts spread by FOOLS. I’ve lied and I am NOT A fool and I wrote a book about it
Ireland Follower: “Maybe you can teach me to lie so others who don’t want to believe the truth can be satisfied.” @BevMahone (cc: @kathyireland)
Me: I have lied to protect my daughter. Does that make me a FOOL???
Then Kathy Ireland got in the conversation and said, “Beverly, why would you ask that? It sounds as though you feel attacked.”
Ireland Follower: “I am intrigued, so what you are saying is you are making a career out of lying?”
To read the rest of the dialogue, you’ll have to go to my weblog: BeverlyMahone.com but I will tell you this, I gained a whole new level of respect for Kathy Ireland and she purchased a copy of my book!
