What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

Comic-Con Coincidence May 27, 2015

The coolest thing in the history of cool things has happened.

My mom is currently living in a city that had a Comic-Con this past weekend. She has a bunch of bookmarks for The Tethering and had nothing to do on Sunday, so she decided to head over to Comic-Con and see if she could pass them out. She finally got to the venue, and there were people crying outside. But she went in anyway and found the door volunteer and asked if she could get a ticket to go inside.

He said, “We’re all sold out. You are going to be one of the criers are you?”

My mom said no. She had just wanted to give out bookmarks for her daughter’s (my) book.

He asked what book I had written, and my mom handed him a bookmark for The Tethering.

Immediately the door dude says, “Oh, The Tethering. I read that. It was really good. I think the second one is out now, but my girlfriend shares her copies with me, and she doesn’t get home for a few weeks.”

Then he took all the bookmarks my mom had to give out to likely candidates of people who would like my book at the Comic-Con!

Guys, I have a reader that I don’t know and isn’t an author! And my mom randomly met him! And he liked my book! And wanted to make other people read my book! Ahhhhhhh!

And if you haven’t gotten your copy of The Siren’s Realm, book two in The Tethering Series, you have about six more days to enter a Goodreads giveaway for a signed copy. Click here to enter, and please share if you can!

  1. Once, at a physics conference, a young man approached me after my talk, and wanted to talk about MY thesis. I almost dropped my teeth! I thought no one EVER would read the thing. EVER. And here was a perfect stranger asking me intelligent questions.

    Sadly, it was only the once – hope you have this experience over and over and over.

    And kudos to your mom.
