Remember that talk I gave for the Latino Writer Society back in November? How stressed I was? Well, it did have a ripple effect. I went to Barnes and Noble to talk to their CSM about carrying Hot Shot. She was a bit discouraging when I introduced myself. She asked if I knew how many authors asked to be carried in the store. I kind of laughed it off, saying, "Who knew San Antonians were so prolific?" But she agreed to take my info, and I gave her the postcard I had written everything on. She glanced at my name and recognized it from the time I spoke at the Latino Writer Society! After that she was much more encouraging, talking to me about participating in a booksigning in April and everything. So, hey, paid off!

AND I finished my revisions on DLB. I'm going to sleep on them and send them back to the editor in the AM. So since I'm back working on the Texas historical.....

Way to go, Mar. I went around to the stores with sales packets I'd pics, excerpts of the book, you name it...met with CRMs, etc. I did convince 3 stores to carry my book...which was great, until my pub went belly up. Sigh. That will NOT happen here! :) Looking forward to seeing Hot Shot on the shelves. (One of my sales calls resulted in the booksigning I had at B and N...I will never forget how special you made that day for me.)
