Thank you, Secret Santa!


A few weeks ago, I tweeted my Amazon wishlist. I forget why. I was being facetious. I was like, “Here it is, it’s mostly Persian grammar and Maya archaeology.” But yesterday, I found a package on my doorstep—no name, straight from the distributor—and inside was this book, a very specialized and pricey academic book that happens to cover exactly the region where my novel takes place, which was a bit of a backwater even when the Maya civilization was at its height, so reliable research is hard to come by.

I couldn’t afford it by myself. It’s going to help me enormously with my novel. So, anonymous Secret Santa: thank you. You made my day very bright indeed.

    Ooh, that’s wonderful! Hypothetically, if someone else wanted to do such a thing, which address would they use? 😛
