There is restaurant that Buddy and I frequent and there are two people there who always take very good care of us. I took these two wonderful people a copy of my first book today. I signed them and they were so happy I was truly touched that something I felt was so simple on my part should result in suck a response.
The thing is it grew. They started telling everyone in the place about my book and showing it to people and the next thing I knew I was the center of attention and people asking me where to get my books and or could they get my autograph. I was so humbled by what happened but at the same time so proud.
Don't worry I'm not going to start going out and handing out free books at every turn and to do it after what happened today would relegate it to something I was doing for nothing more than a promotional stunt. When I give something, unless I am involved with a promotional event, I am old fashion enough to believe that when you give something to someone for a personal reason then it should be from the heart and not the pocketbook.
Anyway to Anna and Dee thank you for being the people you are and making the people you come into contact with smile.
