You never forget your first . . . Damyanti where are you?

September 2nd, 2013.
Back at my favorite coffee shop. No homeless guy today—still gonna offer him a drink next time I see him. Book sales have stalled despite receiving good reviews. I think this throwing five bucks here and there on Fiverr.com to see what will stick is not working. 

Need to create more of that cross-channel marketing that Steve my webguy keeps harping on. You’ve got to drive people to Amazon and B&N. That’s easy for Steve to say, but with only four people regularly reading this blog, I can only do so much. Now if those readers would mention me on their blogs . . . that might help.

Damyanti, are you out there? Could you send a little love my way? In the form of readers?

Damyanti was my first follower. She’s from Singapore and writes a very popular blog. You can check it out here: http://damyantiwrites.wordpress.com 

You always remember your first, and I will always remember Damyanti. I wonder if she ever thinks of me, or has checked out my website: My Website

Sometimes I imagine her siting at a table in the neighborhood food court where she likes to do her blogging, sipping tea and picking at the fruit on her plate, while I sit at my local Starbucks—half a world away. Maybe she is reading my book as I sit here typing, at this very moment.

I just Googled the time in Singapore, it’s 3:29 AM Tuesday, September 3rd.  So much for that fantasy.

Maybe she has trouble sleeping and is reading my book. I hope she doesn’t get to the part about the crazy spy—if she does, she’ll never get to sleep. It’s really creepy.
