You know You’ve Made It As An Author When . . .

On Friday July 6th I set up a table at the Hagerstown Suns game where I had the pleasure of selling and signing books for fans who had come out on Nora Roberts Night to see the Suns take on the Lexington Legends (the Suns won 5-4 in the bottom of the 9th).

While I truly enjoyed talking with Suns fans who stopped to chat or buy a book, nothing compared to the sense of accomplishment, the sense of the pride I felt when, quite unexpectedly, I saw my name posted in an Official Hagerstown Suns Publication on the stadium wall . . .

My Name Amongst The Fine Print

just above a men’s room urinal . . .

My Name Up In . . . Well, Up Above The Urinal!!

“What a relief,” I thought, as I read the flyer’s text: Author David Stinson will be available selling his new book, Deadball, and autographing copies for fans. The words flew off my lips.  I read it a second time just to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. Seeing my name above the urinal in an official Suns publication (as opposed to scrawled in pen on the cinder block as if back in Jr. High) I knew I had attained a new level of, um, well, I’m not sure exactly what, but certainly a new level of something.

Admittedly, I felt a bit uncomfortable bringing my camera into the men’s room to document my level of attainment. But persevere I did, and now I can share with you the proof that I’ve made it.

In a couple weeks I’ll be selling and signing books at the Bowie Baysox – July 22nd to be exact. Here’s hoping I’ll have made it there as well.
