Ok, so I’m a little hazy on the details. But back in the day, close to thirty years ago now, hubs and I got into one of our Knowledge Arguments. It was something about Kenny Rogers. When two Ravenclaws get together this happens. A lot. Suffice to say this took place a wee bit before answers could be immediately googled up on a mobile device. Bets were made. I don’t even remember what my potential boon could be because I was the loser. And my payment was to get hubs ice water anytime he wanted it. Thirty years, people, and I have been on it. He even joked to a friend once “I don’t worry about getting lost in the desert because I know I’ll just need to ask Sue for ice water and she’ll find a way to fulfill the request.”
Fast forward to present day. I’ve been slow to get book six of my series out on the street. So slow that my sales have slowed down to an absolute dribble. Hubs asks what I think sales will be for the new release. I say “good.” He makes a skeptical noise and I give him an eyebrow, and then he says, “Fine. If you sell 10,000 copies in the first month I will never doubt you again.” Y’all. Y’ALL. It is ON. I don’t need to be ‘right’ this time, I just need to win. And I know I can because of YOU. Retweet, reblog, call your mom, whatever you can do to HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN. I believe in you. Do you believe in me?
