Oh, the People You’ll Meet!

Natalie R. Colins blogs about her signing at a Utah B&N to promote Wives and Sisters, a suspense novel set in a repressive Mormon community, describing the various people who come by her table. Including a type all of us in the writing game will immediately recognize:

“Middle-aged slightly nerdy but nice man comes to table… Next twenty minutes pass by while he explains how he has written a science fiction book and everyone who reads it loves it and asks for more. He also asks many questions about publishing and getting published. He wants to know why he can’t self publish. He finally leaves WITHOUT buying book, and with letting me know he just doesn’t understand why that pesky switching tenses is so wrong. He just writes ‘what feels right.’”
