What a Coinky Dink

The male lead in Jack & Diane doesn't believe in coincidences, that's probably because I don't. I've had several experiences in my life that could be considered coincidence, but there's always been some greater purpose. This brings me to Saturday. My book had been out for about three days and I was fearful the unexpected success wouldn't last. It was also the first Saturday of the month, which meant half price at Goodwill (a girls best friend when she's redecorating). As I'm strolling the aisles, look what I found.

In the midst of me wondering if my book Jack & Diane was going to continue to do well, I happen upon a clock of John Mellencamp, the singer and writer of song Jack & Diane.  I could have chalked this up to chance, that it was just a coincidence, but I chose to see it as a positive sign of things to come. The morning after I saw this, I woke to find I was ranked #1 on Kindle's Multicultural/ Interracial bestseller's list!
