I gave a brochure with an excerpt for my second book to someone the other day. After reading it, she asked me some questions and said she saw someone reading my first book recently. He told her a little about it and said he was re-reading my first book since I had a second one out.  My first thought was that she must have me confused with someone else, but when I showed her a picture of my first book, she confirmed that was the book she saw. What a strange feeling to be told someone was just sitting in a lobby reading my book. I can’t wait until I can hear that and not automatically assume they must be mistaken or talking about someone else. Of course, I may always think that in the back of my head.
