I’ve popped into two B&Ns here on the UES side and the Borders in the Time Warner Building at Columbus Circle to sign copies of my book and each time I was greeted with smiles and very helpful staff. At no time was I asked to provide proof of authorship. I imagined something like this:
Staff: “How much dragon on knight sex is in this book?”
Me: “What? None! Wait, is there? No, I’m pretty sure there isn’t.”
Well, something like that. Anyway, the book’s been on sale since Tuesday and the first serious numbers will be available this Monday. Naturally, I’m a wee bit curious, but as I tell all my authors, the best thing you can do is always be writing the next book. I am and enjoying it immensely. I think we’ve also nailed down the title.
