Lucky Writing Socks (and how to build a prosperous partnership)
Is there anything more important than relationships?
I’m just getting started in the audiobook world. Granted, I’m a bit of a fanatic and I’m like a kid in the candy store. But still, I’m new.
Then I get this in the mail:
Who does that?
Who sends anything in the snail mail these days? Who writes a handwritten note? Sends socks? Even custom branded socks with a theme? Oh, just notice this: their logo is the design of the socks? They’re my new Lucky Writing Socks.
Luck is believing you’re lucky.

So let’s see, I’m just getting started in the audiobook world. It feels like a warm bath after running a couple of marathons so I think it’s safe to say that I’m enjoying it. But I’m still new to the audiobook world. Let’s see, there’s ACX, who reject my files and give me instructions to fix it (none of which I really understand). There are a few other players in the game, but then there’s this company who sends me Lucky Writing Socks.
Seriously, isn’t this bribery? Schmoozing?
If this is bribery and schmoozing then I wholeheartedly support it.
They have made a connection.
I’m a little fish in a big pond. Sure, I’m checking out the competition, I’m a savvy shopper and marketer and I want, sorry, will, oops, am already making a career of my writing and will just crush it further. I’m on the hunt for partners.
How much can a pair of socks go in swaying my decision as to which partner to go with?
Uh, pretty far.
Let’s just say I’m smitten.
I’m wearing my socks.
Working on my next audiobook.
Thanks, Findaway Voices, you have a new fan–and partner.
