On Friday, I received a box of comp copies of 100 Girls from Simon and Schuster. I know that I'd already got a couple of copies of the book from them last week, but there's an altogether different feeling to opening a box that is chock-full of a book bearing your name on the cover. Yes.
Armed with these, I will next make some phone calls and go visiting with book buyers at independent bookstores in the area. Wish me luck.
