This was one of those landmarks I didn’t anticipate on this weird and wild journey of author-dom. So far, all my favorable reviews have come from family and friends who, admittedly, have a bit of pressure on them to say good things about THE FALL.
But yesterday, I walked in to Starbucks and was introduced to a new barista, Hannah, who got excited that I was the one who “had written that novel she stole from the back room of Starbucks.” As she raved about THE FALL and discussed those in her life she’s telling to read it, it dawned on me, “I don’t know this person–at all. She’s, like, a fan of the novel… just because she loves it!”
Then, to add weird God-stance to the moment, barista Hannah told me her fiance had been the one to wait on Mark and me at the Apple store the night before. Ah! So that explains the surprised look he had given us when we explained our “business.”
As new-best-friend Hannah chatted on about how she “didn’t want to be creepy about it,” I had to hold my creepy-self back from grabbing her in a crazed hug and dancing her around Starbucks.
Wow. People are being blessed. Thank You, Jesus!!
Sorry, no pictures. I was too dumbfounded to think that logically… and I didn’t want to be creepy 🙂
