Freud may not believe in accidents, but I do. Want to hear about the accident that changed
my life? I mean HEAR. Not read. You can do it right now by going here, to Accidental Radio on the website of author Wendy Wax. Once you click on my information, a cute little podcast graphic will pop up, and you can hear my story. Just don’t make the mistake of typing in www.wendywax.com to get there instead, because you’ll accidentally get Wendy’s cousin, who is also an author.
I learned about Accidental Radio by accident. The publicist who worked to promote Sister’s Choice suggested my name to Wendy as one of the authors she might interview about accidents that change lives. Accidental Radio was designed to promote Wendy’s new novel, The Accidental Bestseller. Of course I ordered the book after my taping, and I’m deeply into it now, thoroughly enjoying this friendship novel about four very different women.
Does that last part sound familiar? Yes, in that way, if not in the story itself, Wendy’s book is a bit like my Happiness Key, which debuts next month. But why shouldn’t Wendy and I think alike? We did, after all, attend the same elementary and high schools. I discovered this accidentally from Wendy’s website. Now what were the chances? What do you think, Freud? Are we taking bets?
So yes, I believe in accidents. I accidentally got involved in promoting Wendy’s book, then accidentally discovered a new author to enjoy, and a new author with whom I have a lot in common. Oh, and next month we are signed up for the same conference. I suspect we will have a lot to talk about when we finally meet face to face–most likely running into each other in a hallway by. . . well, you know.
If you like friendship novels, if you want the inside scoop on the publishing industry, if you just want a relaxing day or two when you can sink into a good story, buy Wendy’s novel. Let’s put Wendy on the bestseller lists. And not accidentally.
