Online conversation with a friend just now:

P says “I want to tell you this story.”
P says “So I’m in Borders, just browsing.”
P says “Nice guy comes up to me (who works there) and asks if I need any help.”
P says “I say, yes, as I’m in the F&SF section, does he have a recommendation for something good.”
P says “He asks what genre. I say something alternative, contemp or near contemp, with magic.”
P says “He immediately grabs Heart of Stone and says, ‘Read this.’”
P says “I say, “Is it good?”"
P says “He says, “It’s great.”"

So P bought it.

*beams lots*

Hand selling is the key!
Well... getting the book sellers to pitch to the book buyers is the key ... but hand selling is NEXT!

Go Kit GO!

Hee! Ever had someone try to sell you your own book?

...and bought it, because they did such a good job? :)

Not yet! But then, my books aren't carried over here, generally speaking. :)

I just finished reading..
Heart of Stone. I stayed home sick from work and just couldn't put it down. Excellent job. My pre-orders are in at Amazon for your next 2 books! I have enjoyed all your books and stories. I look forward to the New venture in the Comic Book area. BTW, I am a friend of Anna the Piper from long ago (by way of my daughter, actually) and I am very happy for your success.

Re: I just finished reading..
*laughs* Now, were you really sick, or were you just using illness as an excuse to stay home and read? :) I hope you're feeling better! :)

I'm glad you liked the book, too. And hooray for friends-of-friends! Nice to meet you! :)

Well I've read all her books to date - and I can say is that Mizkit is a very talented author and look forward to reading the next ones. OK I'm biased - shes a good friend as well.
