KATEBOOK is here

Yes, finally my very own social media channel where I don't have to deal with bigots or racists, or self-serving idiots with no critical thinking skills or self-awareness.

In the light of the news that social media is apparently making us stupider and less tolerate, and that it is addictive as a hit of cocaine I have created my own channel in which to now b̶r̶a̶i̶n̶-̶w̶a̶s̶h̶...inspire you in your own life. 

The social media phenomena are fascinating. I think Facebook has reached its zenith and now it's just something that's there but not really used besides watching those videos shot from the ceiling from Tasty, of recipes we would never cook, because honestly, combining salsa, broad beans, and mashed potatoes feel like a punishment, not a meal.

Beyond bad food combinations, people can no longer trust the content on Facebook, not with Putin and his meddling troll farms and the lack of ability for people to fact check information before they head off on the outrage train to Backwatersville.

My goal is to enterspire (sounds weirdly sexual and I apologise) and also self-promote because I am a writer and dammit, the average wage of an author in Australia is $12,900. Yes, that's how little we make. Yes, I will take your offer of a casserole and yes, I do shop at Aldi. Because I like to buy a petrol generator with my parmesan cheese and trumpets.

I am not very good at self-promotion because you're a bit of a tool when you do it, right? Or maybe that's just me. Selling books is one of the hardest marketing gigs there is because people get bookstore amnesia and because there are so many books from which to choose from.

Why should they read my book? It's a personal choice and one that is often impossible to predict.

But enough about that, let's talk about content and channels.

I am sick of spreading my content across Facebook and Twitter and Medium and Reddit and Steemit and more. This is my new home. All content will be pushed off the cliff from here -  katebook.

I promise to make upside down cooking videos of bad recipes, stupid quizzes to help you find out what sort of a cupcake you are and upload photos of me photoshopped into exotic and fabulous foreign places so you can feel less than me, and wish you had my photoshop skills.

And finally, I promise to let you know about any new books I have coming out. (Two in 2018!) 

You're welcome. Stay amazing. Eat your greens (makes your poo soft) and don't care what other people think so much because to be honest, they're not thinking about you. They're thinking about themselves. I know I am.
