I had my first name recognition the other day due to the books I've published. They are nonfiction reference books related to my profession. I worked with an intern/student the other day and he looks at my name badge and asks if I wrote my book. So now I'm "famous" :hooray: Oh and he heard about my book through word of mouth from other students that found it very helpful.

That's so great.

(I'll move this from self publishing to goals and accomplishments, where it's probably a better fit.)

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

:snoopy: Isn't it wonderful the way their eyes get all big that they're actually talking to a real live published author? May you have many more such experiences!

Blessings,

Thanks everyone! Yea, he teasingly asked if I would autograph his book if he brought it in. My main book is a study guide for one of the state licensing exams for pharmacists. I self published since it's niche book but I've been very successful so far with mostly positive reviews and lots of $$.
