We Are Unshelved

This is the sort of thing that blows a writer’s mind:

My agent sent this along to me this morning, practically shouting in glee. You know, sometimes you try to promote yourself and your books and it’s a lot of drudge work for little or no return -  you send out emails, you make phone calls, you mail out ARCs, all that jazz, and two weeks later it’s like it all went into the dustbin of the universe, unnoticed. Then you wake up one day after having too much to eat the day before, feeling groggy and unfocused, and BAM – there’s a comic strip devoted to your book, read by gazillions of librarians across the country. Huzzah!

    Thanks to you both–I feel like a superstar! A supertsra without fame, money, or power, but still. Sort of the same thing.

    I would say Congratulations, but I’ve already congratulated you far too often this year.

    Frank,

    You could call me a jackass, like most everyone else :-) I kind of find it refreshing.
