Rule Number One: #KeepItClassy
As I prepare to birth my first book baby, “@Sophie Takes a #Selfie” Rules and Etiquette For Taking Good Care Before You Share, learning recently that there will be a new comedy based on social media blunders is the icing on my Suburgatorial cake! Note: For the record, no spray tan, nose job or Red Bull guzzling kids at my house…that I clean myself…like an Actual Housewife of New Jersey.
Entertainment Weekly reports: “Selfie from writer Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory). Logline: “Comedy inspired by My Fair Lady tells the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with ‘likes’ than being liked. After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media ‘followers’ than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.”
Emily! I can’t help but picture your character stumbling upon my book– if only she’d had it years before… except, err, then there wouldn’t be a funny show, but you get the idea. I would be happy (and honored) to send you a copy if you like. Hope this show is a HUGE success and you can be sure I’ll be tweeting all about it.
To my tens of readers: Thank you for stopping by – I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak illustration!
