How My Writing is Similar to that of Jules Verne and John Steinbeck

Well, of course it is not at all!  But still –  the following appeared in the “Auburn Journal” from Auburn, California, today, and certainly gives me a big smile.  Thanks to my older brother George, who lives in Auburn, for suggesting that I send them a press release for the latest book:

 “Auburn gets a mention in a new book by Seattle-based writer David Preston. The author’s “Mourning Ride” is an e-book available online. Preston tells Media Life that he spent some time in Auburn almost two years ago, when his son was an entrant in the Auburn Half-Iron Triathlon. That has resulted in some Auburn settings being used in “Mourning Ride.” Already at work on a follow-up, Preston says that it will feature the main character’s adventures while volunteering at a series of triathlons and marathons. So Auburn may appear in that one as well, he said. Add Preston to a list of authors mentioning Auburn in print that includes Jules Verne, John Steinbeck and Danielle Steele.”

Now really – how many of us every get to have our names listed in a sentence that says anything about any topic and also includes the names Jules Verne, John Steinbeck, and Danielle Steele?  Pretty cool!
