    A twitter favor...

    I've been trying to get my children's book published for years, without avail, but recently had an idea. If I could get Oprah to read it, and she likes it, perhaps I could get it published and in turn garner a lasting legacy and possibly with a great deal of luck, earn enough to live on my own and stay out of a nursing home. (big dreamer, I know)

    Anyway, I tweeted her a request to read it but being one single tweet out of probably thousands each day, she'd (her online manager) would likely not see it. I was wondering if those of you who use twitter would mind re-tweeting my original message in hopes it might get read by Oprah's people and in turn, Oprah herself. I have only one tweet, so its easily found. Thanks in advance to those of you who help.

    *I haven't been using twitter long but I'm assuming that a re-tweet would still get sent the person I sent mine to. If this is incorrect, please let me know. Thanks.

    Trying to get Oprah's attention via Twitter isn't worth your time (sorry). Have you thought about self-publishing? It's not difficult to get into Amazon's marketplace – see https://www.createspace.com/ – and other companies like Lulu worth looking into: http://www.lulu.com/

    This ebook is worth a few bucks if you want to go the formal route: http://michaelhyatt.com/writing-a-winning-book-proposal
