I'm a total fangirl, I admit it. But this just made my day.

EEE! I wonder if Erick would be upset if I he got usurped for a bit.

Funny, Erick and I cowrote a book that's coming out this winter (actually, I did almost all the writing, as Erick will freely admit). This might put you on fan overload! :)

But seriously, come on--doesn't Erick have enough fans? I'm still trying to build a fan base...

As April says below, if there are no pictures, I just MIGHT be able to handle myself. If there are pictures, I'll just have to risk the chance of fan overload - oh, my life is so rough!

And if fans get autographed copies of books, I'm so there!

... okay, so I'm so there anyways, but a girl's gotta try.

Another book? You're going to have little Maigrey all in a tizzy over here!

A personal question about the Lindgren book...

I know this is nosy, but I'm incredibly curious: what leads you to the decision of writing a book as a ghostwriter where you don't get credit as the author at all?

Re: A personal question about the Lindgren book...

I was offered the job and it seemed like relatively little work. Plus it's being published by the World Poker Tour and HarperCollins, so it was a chance to get my foot in the door with some of the higherups at those places. Overall, a good career move I think, especially considering I got the writing done over the course of only six months or so.

Re: A personal question about the Lindgren book...

Foot in the door? Does this mean movie deals, TV appearances, whirlwind book tours? :)

Seriously, if you want a bigger fan base (that is not all math geeks ;) ) you:

a) need to get on TV more (alas, alack, this is somewhat prone to the poker gods)
b) send the girls autographed books (like me!)
c) make sure there are more than just THREE pictures of you on the entire INTERNET! (i promise I'm not stalking you)

Oh, she's really going to go over the edge NOW. Does the book have pictures? If there are no pictures she might be able to handle herself. ;)

Seriously Matt, you actually have quite the fan base, even if you aren't aware of it. Many a time have I been pointed to a post of yours for guidance, etc. from the players I most admire and respect.

But if it makes you feel better, next chat of maigrey's and I that I post, we'll be sure to work in something about you. ;)
