TheKJA was Following me on Twitter?!

SandChigger | March 5, 2011

OK, so it’s just a little before 10:00 AM here in Sietch Tigr (AKA ChiggerTowne) on a sunny Saturday morning and I’ve just been up and at it for about an hour now. Wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary today but guess what I found in my Mail Inbox! Not one but TWO notifications [...]

Evidently Byron, posting as DuneNovels on Twitter, liked the epithet, too: he’s linked to the LA Times article by Scott Timberg and reposted it on Facebook and linked to that [...]
