Stuff My Book’s Been Doing When I Wasn’t Paying Attention

You know how it is when you’re going along in a normal workday and suddenly you discover that your book became available as an ebook? Back in January? And you didn’t even know? Maybe it’s just me. Even though I’m clearly a neglectful book mother and had nothing to do with this technological marvel (matter o’fact, when I read the ebook portion of my contract back in the day, I scoffed and thought to myself, “Like my book’s ever going to be an ebook. Please.”), I feel all proud of my book being cool and getting with the times. I wish I could see what it looks like on a screen.

Anyway, this discovery led me to wonder what else my book has been up to, so I did some searching. Sometimes Powell’s has used copies available, which is something I keep my eye on, and when I visited their page for the book, I noticed that the site blurbed the GoodReads review I wrote of it (because, yeah, I’m the kind of girl who gives my own book five stars on GoodReads). My blurb is first in the list, even, and has my name on it. It’s things like this that make me love the Internet.

    Thanks! It is both disconcerting and entertaining to watch something I spent two years working on flitting about living its own life in the world.

    Soon enough, we’ll be hearing what *your* book does out in the great wide world.
