Cynthia is living the dream. Or at least one kind of dream. It’s a common dream: write novel, sell novel for big advance, watch as novel becomes New York Times bestseller, do media tour for novel, feel somewhat weird and even at times guilty that novel is doing so well. And so on. Really good time talking with Cynthia. Very candid conversation. And one of the best conversations I’ve ever had about what it really takes to make a book a bestseller.
In today’s monologue, I talk about moving, and customer service representatives, and spiritual depletion at the hands of customer service representatives. And also my dog’s bleeding anus.
