I took my ten-year-old daughter to the Bloomington, Illinois, Barnes and Noble today so that she could use her hard-earned money to buy a Hermione Granger replica wand. I live in Bloomington-Normal and actually did a signing at this store recently, so I thought I’d take a look in the science fiction section just to … you know.
First all, imagine my joy when I saw several copies of Andropia sitting on my local Barnes and Noble’s bookshelf. That was pretty cool.
Then, to make it even better, I saw one of my literary heroes–Neil Gaiman–on the shelf below me. To see my book in proximity to his work … it gave me chills.
Of course, while Neil Gaiman seems incredibly polite and genuinely kind, I’m sure his excitement regarding this occasion would not match mine. I’m definitely getting the better deal out of all this.
Take a look at the picture below. Cool, right?
By the way, my daughter was not impressed by any of this.
Ah, to be humbled.
