So. I had some cards printed up to hand out to friends, neighbors, and the dog park folks; people who were in my corner during the process of getting out the door, or people that may be interested. Info about the book, Amazon link, that sort of thing.
I met a guy, his son, and their new puppy, Max. The guy asked about my vape, we had a long talk about vaping, smoking, exercising, and dogs, and then we introduced ourselves and I handed him a card. The kid’s name was Ronan, and I said it was a good Irish name, and Dad said he was named after Ronan Tynan, one of the three Irish Tenors. Get ready for the weird bit: I told him that I had a main character in the book, Siegfried Tynan, who is the fictitious son of Ronan Tynan. He’s gonna buy the book, don’t you think?
