Any author likes to have his book mentioned by someone, anyone, any time. When the mention is in the press, it almost always includes contact beforehand with the writer, who's seeking guidance for the topic (additional sources, perhaps) or something else.
But my eagle-eyed, on-a-rocket-to-prominence niece Sarah Prager somehow found this clip from JWM Magazine, which is affiliated with the Marriott hotel people. I'm in the lead section of the story, quoted perfectly and represented well. All is good.
But I *was* surprised.
