    Should we be in awe and admit he's a winner?

    In a word...."NO" ... Read your numbers and weep Jose!
    My guess is JB had to buy that book he signed "To Caylee". lol

    A friend of mine has a portfolio like that - she paid the photographer and uses it to get jobs or companies pay to use her images in their digital ads...

    HOw about "before" and "after" ads....works for me...


    I was on hold so I looked to page two of those photos and noted that the Senator who did a book signing had many photos of long lines on the sidewalk waiting to meet him. ust something I noticed.

    I'm thinking that the ratings of the book are being affected by other new books coming out. Maybe they don't sell well for a couple of days. Baez gets a temporary boost. Then, they start selling like hotcakes and he's further down the list.

    Perhaps all this is coming from the new "publicist" JB is said to have mentioned in a FB post? (I have not seen the post, just read about it.) Publicity firm of Somebody-and-Wright?
    The caption under the picture on Hal's story about the signing says 'Jose Baez in court in September. Photo credit: Red Huber/Orlando Sentinel'.

    Also did you notice that JB is alone in most of the photos. The ones with him checking his phone, several sitting on the bench all alone... So sad...No one will let him sign a book..

    So I believe this is the guy's first published book - it is "Defending Jacob" by William Landay. Worth getting out of the library for those folks who like a psychological mystery....

    Weird - I think he's a lawyer in real life too...
    It must be a good read...I went to my library's website and put in a request for it; I'm 58th in line and there are about a dozen copies in the county's library system. Just started Tana French's 2nd novel last night; she's so good!

    Must be a variety of things because I've seen his numbers rise a 1000 points yet his sales figures remain the same. We've just started a new month - I went to our largest bookstore - Chapters- last night to mosey around - not a baez in sight but did buy three newly released books, Tana French, John Verdun and Peter Robinson - very cool we get an extra discount for the day everytime a Canadians wins an Olympic medal...

    John Verdun is another good new one while you are waiting - just released his third book...and yes, just bought her fourth. I like that her books up here at least come out in paperback.

    Outstanding! Thanks again. I just reserved Think of a Number; there's only one other reader ahead of me.

    And yes, lg, books are my guilt-free "guilty pleasure," too! The TV's mostly for my husband. He's got that TV remote in a Vulcan death grip; it's a good thing he likes Storage Wars, too..lolz.

    I'll have to check out storage wars - when I'm really bored I'm stuck with Toddlers and Tiaras...wowzers - those are "very unusual" mothers on that show- and bratty kids - yikes!

    include me in that guilt. I have no idea why I watch but am drawn to it.


    I went further with the pics on that photographer's site and page 2(or3)has other writer's signings and there are many photos of the audience and packed chairs. I wish Mr Baez's signing showed the same.

    Have a look at 'The Reckoning' by Jane Casey (Irish writer) next time you're in there. I just finished it and it was a very good read...lots of twists in the plot.
