I realize the wife is usually the last to know, but I never suspected I would be the last to know that my literary masterpiece is actually stocked in my local Barnes and Noble. Thanks to the daughter of my friend Robin who happened to be perusing the book store this weekend, and spotted my book in the local authors section, the secret is out!
So about a month ago I contacted my local B&N to inquire how to get my book on their shelf. I was told to send the community business manager an email detailing my contributions to the community and to explain how my book would be a good fit. I did so, but never received a confirmation that my book would be on the shelves. Hey, guess my stints as PTA President of two different schools really paid off huh? Whatever the reason, I made the cut and it was really exciting to walk in and see my drivel in a real book store!
How about the nice gentleman who remembered Uncle Jeffy from buying me a "big print" book asking me to sign a couple of copies? I don't know if I should take that as a compliment that he asked me to autograph some books, or be embarrassed that he remembered my husband purchased a gift for me six months ago that was in big print 'cause I'm freakin' old as dirt? Oh well, at least I didn't have to break out my bifocals to sign my own name.
And to celebrate being "in the know", I went home and had me a big ol' Debosa. HAH, now y'all know that ain't true. I finished off the whole damn bottle.
