“YOU! You wrote the book. It is Awesome, I couldn’t put it down. Hey everyone this is the guy who wrote the book!”
That was a sweet young clerk in Advance Auto parts. I was there to check on the fuel pump for the Z-28. She went on and on, She was going to Amazon and order them all.
Of course that makes me feel good, that makes twice I have been ‘recognized’. LOL. Another thing that makes me feel good is to see my books listed and sold as used. Yes, even the ones signed by the author.
I told Sherry the plum will be, to run across one of my books in a yard sale.
I am very happy at how ‘Finally Love’ is progressing. I ordered 50, planning to have 20 to sell here on the Blog. Now I must order some more since I said I would have them here for $8.50 including shipping. It will be a couple weeks now for the other order to come in.
I will notify everyone when the shipment comes in. And thanks so much for those who have already read it. Sandie also put a review on amazon, Thanks Sandie.
Every writer has a ego, or we would not write. As you write, you can let your imagination run wild, and anything can happen in fiction.
I know authors who want ‘real life or reality’ in their novels. I have always preferred a story book ending. I love to read Louis L’Amour,Jack Higgins, Clancy etc, because the good guy is eventually gonna win. When I read, I want to leave reality, and dream of fantasies yet unused.
Anyway it is good for someone to walk up to you with one of your books and say, you look just like the guy who wrote this book. That happened in McDonalds one Sunday morning. I got a real kick out of that.
Life is good, and it can be a lot of fun. My oldest fan (90+) is in Maine. I just got word, her eyes are too bad to read this one. She is looking into the Kindle audio translator. I hope it works for her, she is such a sweetie..
Sometimes you get exactly what you ask for.
