Stop The Presses!!!!!
I’ve done several posts celebrating really good days.
Today is another one!
My local newspaper gave me a half-page interview (with photo that is not so hot, but I am overlooking that) on my new book. They interviewed me
AS AN AUTHOR!
I am an author. And a good one. Me. Really!
Here’s the link, if you want to see what local newspaper coverage is like (admittedly, on a slow news day… Page One was “Car Show Draws Hundreds For Fundraiser”).
My Mom was thrilled.
So I was having a pretty good day.
Last week I wrote a little note to Marlo Thomas. Several years ago, she included an essay that I wrote in her collection, “The Right Words At The Right Time, Volume II.” So I wrote and told her that I had written a novel, and truly felt like I was reinventing myself, which is the topic of her latest collection, “It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over.”
And today, she posted this on her Facebook site (sorry it’s a bit blurry – I may be a ‘real’ author not, but I am not a ‘real’ techie):
And she has a link to my Author page on Facebook AND my Amazon page for the book! And although it says “7 people like this” – as of 10:29 tonight, I hit 103 likes (which is more than the Page One car show drew).
I am naturally thrilled (and a bit Starstruck – I love Marlo! Since 1966, when I wanted to be just like her on “That Girl,” and forty years later, when she liked my little essay, and oh, my, especially now!)
Can I challenge you to go to Marlo Thomas’ Facebook page, and like that post, so I get lots more than 103 likes?
I’ve always wanted to be well-liked.
