Gratitude: Patricia J. Murphy

2. Once I was on a e-book tour for my first solo e-book and was SO enthusiastic about doing a signing at a Chicago-area bookstore I’ve lengthy admired, Patricia invited me out for dinner beforehand. She purchased a replica of my e-book on the retailer beforehand and requested me to signal it. She then went with me to the bookstore occasion….WHERE NO ONE SHOWED UP. I used to be so embarrassed. She frolicked with me and the bookstore proprietor as I signed inventory, preserving my spirits up with enjoyable chatter and likewise taking a photograph of me signing books, which I later cropped to cover the truth that NO ONE HAD SHOWN UP.

3. I’ve seen that Patricia continues to be simply as pleasant and welcoming to nervous newbies over time. She doesn’t make an enormous factor of it.

Patricia conjures up me, and I really feel fortunate to have her as a buddy.
