A Life of It’s Own
I try not to focus too much on sales, especially during these early days when I’m still trying to get the word out about One Big Beautiful Thing, but this morning marked a turning point.
This morning I discovered I had four additional sales overnight and I had no idea who bought them. I mostly know who bought the others. Friends, friends of friends, my mother, her friends, my sisters, their friends. I have a really big family and a lot of friends. Most of my other sales have been followed by a note from someone at least tangentially known to me saying “hey, I bought your book.” But not this morning.
So, it’s out there, traveling, beyond friends and family. I hope the new people like it. I hope they tell their friends about it and it keeps moving and being read. It’s exciting and kind of weird.
