Okay then

Today I had my first sales call. I think it went well. It’s really nice to get out and talk about books. And I’m very fortunate to work on books I really like and feel positively about. I was wondering how people at bigger presses do sales calls–talking about books they may know nothing about.

My mom called me last night to tell me about this great new author she really likes who has a website “just like you”–Ariana Huffington. I kept waiting to see if she was joking, but she was not. She’d somehow not heard of Ariana Huffington or Huffington Post until yesterday.

Sometimes I envy my mom.
