every now and then my neighbor borrows some books. He's got eclectic taste, but he doesn't much like romance. Ha. That's what he said.
my neighbor, handing me back a book: I want more books from this author.
me: hey, what a coincidence, me too. good suspense, eh?
neighbor: yeah, how many more books does she have out.
me: Yo, G, did you notice it's a romance?
neighbor: sure. I got it. I want more books by her. She have more books?
me: she has another one coming out any minute I think. And I bet she'll have more coming after that because she's getting pretty good press.
neighbor: really? I've never heard of her.
me: well, she's not getting it in this country. And sorry I don't have her next book.
neighbor: oh. Well. Let me know. I guess I can buy her next copy.
me: good luck on that. As far as I know, it's not going to be for sale in this country.
me: she's Australian.
neighbor: I got that. Jeez. But not available here? Not even on amazon?
me: nope. At least I don't think so
neighbor: That's just not right.
me: yeah, that's what I think too.
........fast forward to today. And look, someone else who apparently doesn't think much of standard romance likes her, too.
