most awesome friends  

My friend Mary Anne sent me a photo of THE PRETENDER’S CROWN in the wild at a Borders in DC. I have the most awesome friends. :)

Look at it there with all its C.E. Murphy friends! *wriggle* :)

Oh, that is so cool.

oh, you mean I should have told you about the pocket+ of 'em I saw at the Union Square B&N on Sunday? :-D

(oh, and no Word War for me this morning -- I am off to have my soul stolen photo taken.)

I was actually about to say I should've snapped a picture of them at the same bookstore! Huh! Small world, isn't it?

How bizarre. Yes, clearly you should've. :)
Laura Anne Gilmansuricattus on May 6th, 2009 11:45 am (UTC)
But did you go over and pet my books while you were there? *grin*

We will miss you!

I didn't think to take a picture of it, but at one of our Barnes and Noble stores in Western Massachusetts, your books fill about a third of a shelf. Keep this writing thing up much longer and they'll need an entire SHELF just for you! Then it's only a matter of time until you take over ENTIRE bookstores! MUMHAHAHAHA!!!

Ummm....sorry. Got carried away there. :-)

*counts on my fingers* 4 more books out before the end of next year, in theory. 6 including anthologies... THE WORLD SHALL BOW BEFORE ME!

I imagine it feels pretty rad to be able to go to a bookstore and see books that you've written for sale on a shelf. :)

The thing is, I mostly can't do that! Because there's only one bookstore in Ireland that reliably carries my books, so mostly I have to rely on people sending me in-the-wild pictures! :)

Oh, dude, if I'd known that I'd have sent you pics before! I was just fondling your tomes in Barnes & Noble this very weekend!

Er. You know what I mean.

I had to beat up the bookstore staff at one of my local bookstores. I couldn't find Pretender's Crown until my wife noticed it was in the new book shelf in the Romance section.

Now mind you the cover did look quite at home with the other new Romance releases at the time. But I find it ironic that it was never a problem when it came to your Luna books.

I actually had issues with shelving when I was looking for the Negotiator books. I think the local store here went by publisher instead of content...or random, throw-them-somewhere shelving, which they do practice frequently.

I'm a book turner. And I also stick other books in the Twilight section in the hopes of tapping that pool of readers.

i am also a frequent book turner, but in this particular instance, it was the book store staff....

Apropos of not much, I'm amused at the bio that Paul (a good friend of mine from anime costuming) wrote of you.

kitmizkit on May 6th, 2009 04:45 pm (UTC)
Me too. :) (Hi! I know who you are! Paul talks about you!)
cathschaffstump: drolleriecathschaffstump on May 6th, 2009 05:22 pm (UTC)
I know who you are! Paul talks about you!

Cautiously, she said groovy. :)

He's a great guy. I feel lucky to know him.

And he knows where all the good restaurants are, every time we get together.

was my photo the first "in the wild" this time?
