Well, that was anticlimactic.


A few days ago, I announced to my Facebook friends that I had just self-published my first children’s book on Amazon, Winthrop Risk, Detective.  Aside from my husband and one of my sons (the other isn’t on Facebook), nobody responded.  Not one “like”.  Not one expression of congratulations.  Nothing.

I can still hear the crickets.

The day after my big flop of an announcement, a man delivered a bouquet of flowers to my house.  They were from my husband, John (my pet name for him is Bear).  That’s the card he sent with the flowers.

“Congratulations, it’s a boy! And his name is Winthrop Risk.  All my love, all my life.  Love, your Bear.”

Pretty cool, huh?

    Another writer friend, Dawne Weber, saw the Facebook post a couple of days later and bought the first copy!
