    This txtmsg made my day…

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | October 22, 2007

    Arrived today at 7:44 p.m. from a friend.

    “Just saw a guy on the subway reading your  galley. He is 70 pages on and loving it. His name is Ian Chin. Works at Hachette.”

    My friend was so excited that he interrupted Ian even as he was listening to his iPod. And the galleys only came out last week from Hachette, my publisher. But it’s a good sign that my friend could recognize the orange cover  (with the soy sauce packet) in a crowded subway car. Other tidbits from txtmsging back and forth. Ian works in marketing. There was a meeting discussing my cover as an effective case study.
