I've Been Outed

In a really, really good way.

As I mentioned yesterday, What Mattered Most is now available for pre-order at Amazon.

I emailed my friend Mary, the school counselor.

Mary proceeded to send the link to everyone in her email address book. That included every teacher at school and God only knows who else (Mary has quite the connections!).

Want to guess how many times I've talked about my upcoming releases today?

It's been a little disconcerting, but at the same time, it's been so much fun to talk about John and Lanie with people and then to segue to my other books. Everyone is genuinely excited for me and interested in what I do. (And maybe I'll sell more books!)

I can see now I need a small collection of promo brochures or postcards with my title and release info on them to hand out in said conversations.

Being outed was a really neat way to top off a less-than-nice week.

So . . . have I told you about my books yet?

Eli, it was so funny. I was packing up to leave for the day and the classroom phone rang. It was a first grade teacher: "Linda, I just heard about your book!"

And we have a ten minute conversation.

I go to the office to check out. Another first grade teacher and a para. I had to relate the entire story of my writing career. All. Nine. Years.

Then I walk to pick up my youngest from the playground, where he's in afterschool care. The first thing I hear: "So when's your book coming out?"

It is neat how excited everyone else is for me. It's just so sweet.
