"This past summer, my novel, Broken Piano for President, shot to the top of the best-seller lists for a week. After Jack Daniel’s sent me a ridiculously polite cease and desist letter, the story went viral and was featured in places like Forbes, Time magazine and NPR’s Weekend Edition. The New Yorker wrote one whole, entire, punctuated-and-everything sentence about me!
My book was the No. 6 bestselling title in America for a while, right behind all the different 50 Shades of Grey and Gone Girl. It was selling more copies than Hunger Games and Bossypants. So, I can sort of see why people thought I was going to start wearing monogrammed silk pajamas and smoking a pipe.
Even when there’s money in writing, there’s not much money."
