Publicity Terrible Tale #13: Age Appropriate

From author Karin Gillespie:

Once, on a tour of Florida, the Cocoa Library hosted me. My audience wasn’t large and most were retirees. The librarian apologized for the small turnout and one of the patrons overheard her.

“You should have been here last week,” the patron said. “There was an author here who had them lined outside the door. They were packed in like sardines.”

“Who was the author?” I asked, imaging Grisham, Pat Conroy or even Paula Deen.

“Well, I don’t recollect the name of the author,” the patron said. “But I do remember the name of his book. It was called Overcoming Incontinence.”
