Earlier today I had the pleasure of discussing Paint Chips with the Tommy and Brook Book Club at Baker Book House.
It was a whole lot of fun and I got to see some fabulous friends.
While there, I noticed that Paint Chips…my little novel…was on a very special shelf.
The Baker Book House Best Seller shelf.
I didn’t even put the book there. I asked one of the employees and she said that, indeed, it was legit.
Here’s the proof.
I was so excited. And giddy. And very grateful for the wonderful people in Grand Rapids who have made their purchases at our local and very happy book store.
Then I realized I was on a shelf with Kyle Idleman. I met him this time last year at a conference. We have mutual friends.
But when I got home, I laughed at this picture.
The title of Kyle Idleman’s book made me chortle.
“Not a Fan.”
And it’s hanging out WAY on the other side of the shelf.
Clearly, it doesn’t take much to amuse me.
(FYI: if you don’t live in West Michigan, but plan to purchase a paperback copy of Paint Chips, how about you give Baker Book House a jingle. They can ship it to you. It’s a whole lot better to support the independent book sellers than the big online conglomerate.)
