My library is my own personal bookstore.

I don't know why I was so surprised that Thumper turned out to be a real live author.
Just one of those slap yourself in the head moments.

So, when Thumper posted an interview regarding her latest book, I was very excited and begged my librarian to go order a copy. "Please, please, pretty please! See all the great books Thumper has written? You should have some here. I promise I will borrow them ALL!"

And you know what?
Because I begged and sent links and praised Thumper all up and down, you know what my librarian did for me?

She ordered Max's book.

I tried, Thumper. I really did.
(Don't tell Max. It'll go to his head.)

I'm not a real author. I only play one on the Internet... ;)

Truly, I'm not sure that a librarian can order my books. Most libraries order through Brooks & Taylor distributing and mine are distributed through Ingram.

Now, I do know how you can get a giant-assed single edition (it's basically a proof copy) with tiny tiny tiny print of all three of my first books...just email me a snail mail address.
