Sunday Update

"A Friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of Nature."- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Number of books I sold at my author appearance yesterday: 5.

Number of books I sold to people I did not already know: 1.

Opportunity to stand in a Barnes and Noble with books I wrote and talk to a local reporter: priceless :)

Hey, guess what? Next week during my mini-tour to New Hampshire, I'm going to have lunch with Marianne! The last time the two of us got together was 2 1/2 years ago. Since then, she's launched a (really successfu) book review site and published 7 short stories, a novella, and a novel. And I've managed to publish 3 novels. Not too shabby, right? I think maybe we're good karma for each other, so let's see what the next 2 1/2 years bring!

Really?

Good grief. Time flies.

I guess when it comes to selling books, it pays to know people.

I bet it was great standing in Barnes and Noble! It sounds like you and Marianne are good karma for one another. Let's see what happens after this visit!!!
