A week and a half ago, I walked into the Bay Street Trading Co. in Beaufort, South Carolina.  To advertise my signing, Will, the store manager, had taped an 8x11 piece of paper to the door.  It read, “New York Times Bestselling Author, Charles Martin, signing today at 3 p.m.”

Two hours later, as I was leaving, Will asked, “Can I get you anything for the road?  Water?  Coffee?”

I pointed at the door.  “Could I have that sign?”

He laughed. “That’s all you want?”

I nodded.  “It’s the first time I’ve ever seen those words…next to my name.”
