My modest literary contribution, Searching for Alpha Centauri: A Boyhood Memoir, made a nice comeback this month. It became an Amazon Best Seller by climbing to #2 in its category—just behind Timothy Egan’s latest book. Yeah, the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winning Timothy Egan.
That’s what I’m talking about!
So maybe it’s not a coup, but my book did come in three spots ahead of Weird Al Yankovic’s biography.
Weird Al #5.
How often does that happen? How often can that happen?
I don’t like to brag, but such victories for unknown authors are rare and all too fleeting. So please forgive me this moment of crowing …
before I sink back into the depths of literary obscurity.
