I'd really like Paranormalcy to sell.
I mean, umm, really really.
I've always had a tendency toward superstition. Even though I know it's irrational, it's still there. I thought I'd done everything I could to ensure success--great story, rewrites to tighten the plot, editing until the thing positively sparkled, awesome agent--but I realized there's one thing I haven't done. I have yet to tempt fate.
Unfortunately, most of the big, ridiculous things I could do--extra piercings, commemorative tattoos--are prohibited by my religion. Dang. So far the only thing I've come up with is that, if Para sells, I'll dye a strip of my hair purple. Or pink. Or some other fun-and-very-not-me color.
So I'm looking for suggestions. Public humiliation, non-permanent personal modification, something for the blog, whatever. Leave me a comment if you can come up with a better way for me to tempt fate into letting my book sell.
