Shameless

55 Comments

I’ve long acknowledged that having children was the end of any sense of modesty for me. Shitting on the delivery table? Yup, that put the kabbash on that.

Writing a book, however, brought me to a whole new level.

I am now completely and utterly shameless. This, my friends, is how I now spend my days…

How I wish I were kidding.

In the last couple weeks, I’ve begun accosting innocent strangers who shall now associate Barnes and Noble with crazy ladies. I’ve made it a habit to visit at least one bookstore a day, so I can rearrange the store displays. I sneak in Sharpies to sign copies which I haven’t been asked to sign. I shove the book in people’s faces so they have no choice but to see it.

I’ve officially gone crazy.

So, please… just buy the book.

Don’t make me come and find you.

    Ain’t no shame in going out there and getting the word out. And you do it well.

    This is precisely why you’ve got thousand and thousands of followers. And I have 12.

      Uh, I forgot to mention the little thing called talent. That probably has something to do with your numbers too. lol.

    Finding a crazy lady in my Barnes and Nobles would make my day. You are hilarious!

    When ever I see an ereader, computer, or smartphone display, I load up the page for one of my ebooks.

    You’ve got to show it to sell it, woman! I’m talking about the book, of course, and nothing else…

    But if you’ve got it, flaunt it ;)

    It’s all good! Barnes & Noble should be paying you for providing entertainment to its patrons and livening up the place. I predict an SNL skit in your future … fun!

    I’m waiting to buy it for my birthday when you come to my favorite bookstore, Anderson’s. Putting it on the calendar right now!

    I preordered for my kindle and woke up to find it. I read it that day and I loved it. If you accosted me I would buy you a Coke since I don’t drink coffee. Come to Cleveland!

    You may have gone crazy, but at least you have not resorted to flashing people or anything like that. On second thought, you may want to go for it :)
    P.S. Love the book.
