Books take directions of their own once they’re launched out into the world.
I’ve submitted my next novel for publication but “Aloha, Mozart” continues to move along in the background a year and a half later.
Word gets around in unexpected ways.
This week two Honolulu book groups asked for copies and discussion sessions in the fall, joining a third group of readers out in Aiea scheduled for the same. More surprising, a University of Miami music professor, on vacation, met me to discuss using “Aloha, Mozart” with his students, all part of a connection with a stranger from 5000+ miles away, made because of a novel. Nice.
