This modern world our ours works in mysterious ways.
The Guardian newspaper (the London one, not the San Francisco Bay Guardian one where I started my career twenty years ago, nor the Moscow Guardian one where I served as Art Director fifteen years ago) asked me last week to write an article about my book and visual thinking. The article ran in Saturday's paper across the UK, and I received several complimentary notes from readers, which was great.
There I saw Andrew's napkin sketch about how he had come to decide to buy my book. It's a great picture, and the accompanying article serves all authors (or hopeful authors) on how complex the process can be by which a potential reader becomes an actual book buyer.
Thank you Andrew for the blog, the sketch, the insight, and above all for the purchase. You'll be happy to know I sent your link through to everyone I know in publishing as a reminder of all the eggs we need to keep up in the air: books, websites, links, blogs, tools, downloads. It all matters and it all adds up.
