So I went to the mall last weekend to get the latest Cindy Gerard [got it, read it, loved it]. As I am wont to do I looked to see if the store carried my book. They didn’t. In fact, this is a conversation I had with one of the clerks:
Me: I couldn’t help noticing that you don’t have a Gay/Lesbian Fiction section, do you?
Clerk: No. But those kinds of books are in with Relationships.
Me: Really? Even the mysteries?
Clerk: [blank look]
She was so completely baffled that I didn’t press the issue. Poor woman. I think I might have done something irreversible to her view of the literary world. Gay and lesbian mysteries? Who would have thought?
