It took a while for Sex and Zen of Shopping to get discovered

It took a while to for my shopping book to get discovered, but my spam folder is filling up fast! Lots of links to handbags and other shopping stuff – and of course sex. Should be no surprise there. That’s what you get when you title a book “Sex and the Zen of Shopping.”

Funny I’m not getting any links or offers or comments about Zen. Guess the more highly evolved spiritual creatures in our universe aren’t trolling the internet.

Maybe I should have stuck with “Shop Smart in a Dumb Economy” which was the original working title. But I had an agent tell  me in quite a serious advice letter that I should drop that title because “this whole recession thing will be over in a year.”  That was in…let me see now…2009?

It just goes to show how wrong agents can be. So cheer up authors. Those guys are not always right. What do they know anyway? Wonder if he’s still in business?

    Bwahahah. yeah, he’s likely toast by now. But, interesting point: Presume you’ve got it logged on the search engines using other words, like shopping, bargains, etc? Let’s hope it catches on since it’s a lot of fun and full of useful info.

    I hope the agent invested money according to their advice.
