I met this guy at the dogpark today. Well, first I met this guy's dog - then I met this guy. As our dogs were playing [or I should say, as my dogs were bullying his dog] we got to talking. He said he actually trained his young Yorkie to [get this] ring a bell at the back door, when he needs to pee. His house has been 'accident free' for six months now! This is a sign of intelligence - human intelligence - worthy of deeper conversation.
He mentioned he works at home. Part of me was disappointed because let's face it, every new dog I meet is a potential client - unless the parent works at home! So, after the dollar signs faded from my pupils, I asked what he does for work. And he said he's a writer.
Ten-plus years in this town have taught me that could mean anything. I mean hell, so am I! I inquired further. Lo and behold, he is indeed a writer. An actual living, breathing, working, published writer. Good for him! Not only that, he's got a website and a blog!
Oh yeah, I'm linking him!
I asked him three times to tell me his name as I kept forgetting. He was kind enough to make up name-associations for me. I told him it was a lost cause, but I did remember his first name when I got to my car. [I'm that bad with names]
When I got home, there was an email from someone I didn't recognize. I almost sent it to my spam folder till I saw the first name! He had already been to my website and my journal. [obviously he doesn't have that same name-problem I have] He was smart enough to leave a link to his website.
OK folks. Here's where you come in.
Visit Paul Davidson's website. Read reviews and see what the critics have to say about his new book. And perhaps even buy the book!
Visit Paul Davidson's blog. Be sure to leave a comment! There's a photo of him but honestly, I don't think it captures his essence. He's a cutie in person. But sorry girls and boys, I believe he's taken. If not by a partner, certainly by his beloved Yorkie!
