I just got off the wire with one of the library staff who informed me under condition of anonymity that my book is one of the most checked out by the local patrons. More than Kerouac. Surpassing Walt Whitman. Killing any Shakespeare contribution.
I was astounded at the news. Wow. Couldn't believe it! Never expected it. But as Miclo said (Chicano inside reference here) "When you expect nothing and you get everything...that's destiny." ;)
Come out tonight and get a copy of my book personally autographed. On the cheap not cuz it's low value but because you are worth my sparing an extra profit. Thanks to all who visit this site and all the well-wishers in the world.
