Ok, so I wasn’t in an actual store, but I posted this article on LinkedIn today and was hunting around for a link to The Art of Postcard Writing.
That book I wrote on a dare. Taking a friend back to the airport after she’d been in Adelaide for my wedding, she pulled out a fistful of postcards from her bag.
‘I hate this!’ she vented, scrawling madly. ‘Why don’t you write a book about how to do it. I dare you.’
I smiled. ‘Game on.’
By the time she was back in Berlin, the book was on Amazon. From drop-off to in-store purchase: 48 hours.
So that’s the hilarious story of this fun little volume, and I’ve never taken the sales of it seriously, which is why I nearly fell over when I saw it promoted by Dymocks!
Dymocks is my favourite bricks-and-mortar booktailer in Australia, so this made my day.
Then I wondered whether I’m getting the royalties from the sales.
In any case it’s an amazing Christmas present, and I had to share! 🙂
