No one can force Oprah to notice them. One must simply wait for the miracle. I could not. I taped up a (flattering) picture of Oprah, got an early galley copy of my novel, and turned the page every day (see picture). When I went out of town, I made my neighbor come over and turn it. I figured, if Oprah’s picture was reading my book, could the Great Goddess be far behind? I’m still waiting.
