The other day I did the press conference about WineBar and then I was like oh no karma is gonna bite me in the ass for writing this and guess what?
It did. lol I swear karma fucking hates me.
Guess what happened to me. I was hanging out at the Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco and I actually brought my laptop with me so I could do stuff in the store. And then all of a sudden I hear “Are you a developer?” from a voice behind me.
And I look back and its this dude. He’s holding an old fashioned and he’s got a smirk. I’m like whoa. “No, I’m actually an author.”
“An author who does websites?” he asks me.
“I sell direct to my readers,” I said.
“Are you any good?” he asks.
“I’m a USA Today Bestselling author and I’ve hit the Amazon Top 100 like 200 times,” I said to him. He’s like whoa.
“That’s impressive,” he says to me and I’m like ooooh its been so long since someone has been impressed with me.
“What do you do?” I asked.
“I’m a professor,” he says to me. “I teach poli sci over at UC Berkeley.”
So I raised my eyebrows at him because he looks like 32 and I’m like you’re a professor and he’s like yeah I’m an adjunct. I did my PhD at Harvard. And I’m like wow ok. He also does some consulting for some political campaigns. Anyways, he ends with, “I have some friends over there that I got to get to but have a drink with me at the Top of the Mark this Friday.”
I’m like oh. my. god. Someone just asked me out.
“Here’s my number. Call me,” he says, “I can’t wait to have dinner with a USA Today Bestselling author”
And I’m like sitting there speechless as this totally handsome 30 something year old who looks like he stepped out of a magazine walk away. And I’m like okay tomorrow morning I need to talk to the angels and see what to do. I’m thinking I should call WineBar and ask if its okay to go on this “date” but I dunno. I want to because he was so smooth and suave and WineBar has made it clear that we’re not a thing until we figure it out but I dunno babes. What do I do?
I was so not sure what to do that I went back and read Naughty Lil’ Angel. I also put it up on the store. It’s got a re-release special of $1.99 for the next 24 hours. You can grab it here or on the Featured Deals Page!! And please let me know what to do!
