On Tuesday afternoon the UPS truck came with 11 boxes addressed to me. The delivery person wanted to know if he should put them in the garage. "No way," I said. "Put them right here in the front hall." These were my long-awaited books. I spent the rest of the week sending out 25 promotion packs and flogging books to friends, Dave's clients and whoever else came across my path. It's called seeding the market. It kind of feels like planting crocuses beside a big rock in hopes of affecting my world or at least my neighbourhood.
