100 Years of Ermintrude – The Twitter Version

100 Years of Ermintrude, the Trilogy

My first foray into the world of print was to create a trilogy of ebooks called 100 Years of Ermintrude.

Each ebook consists of 33 four line stanzas and together the stories tell a poignant story of many generations of a family.

Little did I know when I wrote it that each stanza was around 140 characters or less.

Each book can be read in minutes but leaves a message about how to live your life that will last forever.

On the 30th July 2009 at 3:33pm GMT, I will be broadcasting the first of the trilogy on Twitter.

Due to Twitter/Tweetlater restrictions on posting, there will be 12 stanzas per hour – so tune back it at 4:33pm, 5:33pm and 6:33pm for the full story …

Either “watch” my Twitter feed – www.twitter.com/thebookwright tomorrow at 3:33pm and you should see a stanza appear every minute.

If you miss it, you can search for the #ohyoe hashtag on Twitter Search

I’d be really grateful if you could tell your followers and retweet this event as much as possible.

Here’s what people have been saying about it …

“Truly a touching piece of work and artistry wonderfully complimented by the guitar music. Thought provoking to the extent I just wanted to ‘hug’ someone.” – SarahJayne Caffray

“I watched/listened to Ermintrude with a couple of friends. If is fantastic, really moving. It made us all sit back and think. Afterwards the room was quiet for a few minutes. It was strange, we then starting talking about who each character was. Definitely a profound effect. Then we watched it again.” – Denise Harris

“Stop, look and listen. Read, learn and inwardly digest. I’m touched and delighted. I’m quiet.” – Jackie Walker

“Stunning, I cried, that’s all” – Maurice Watts

“Ermintrude was a physical, spiritual and emotional journey designed for the soul. A feast for the senses, a harmonic blend of music, voice, and art and prose. A piece to reflect and time out for those who are too busy wasting time instead of living life.” – frankie picasso
