Well, OK then, did I mention that the bookstore manager put it on the TOP shelf, next to THE SHACK? The bookstore manager initially ordered 10, and I said, "Bookstore Manager, don't you think maybe you'll be overwhelmed by all of the teeming masses, yea, even the madding crowds, asking for Life Savors: Savory Stories for the Soul? I mean, don't you think it would be prudent to order, like, 100?"
And she said, "No."
So there are six left. I bought one for my mother; my boss bought one; the lady whose car I hit in the parking lot bought one, and some unidentified person bought the other. Unidentified Person, whoever you are, I salute you AND kiss your boots. You are nice. (I wonder if Bookstore Manager hid it to boost my morale?)
OK, so I know that I told you I have a book in the bookstore, but have you ever seen physical proof that I have a book in our bookstore? No, you haven't. So I thought I'd better take a picture, for your sake. Lisa McKay is in this book, too. (Funny, when I spell-checked this post, the computer's brain suggested "Micmac" for "McKay.") But this is not Lisa
they didn't put one of those shelf-talker thingies with her name on it like they did mine. My name is Linda Crow. It says so right there, in case you can't read it. See? That's my shelf-talker. Right there under the book. That I'm in with Lisa and a few hundred other talented people.
They say when you propose a book, you should also propose your personal marketing strategies. I've always kind of liked the marketing idea that you see on the left. So maybe I should walk into my She Speaks appointments with the editors on Friday, proposal strapped snazzily onto my head. Whaddya think?
If you'd like to win a copy of this book, which would give me another reason to buy one and make it look like this book has sold in our bookstore, please leave a comment. I will close eligibility Thursday morning before I leave. When I come back from She Speaks, I'll select a winner. I just mistyped "sinner" for winner, which is funny. So if you are a sinner who would like to be a winner, let me know.
