Walking through Union Square Market in New York or in an airport, no one comes up to me and says, “I read Free Prize Inside–it increased sales of Clorox by two percent” and then gives me a hug…not even in my dreams. I’m very proud of those books, but these books make people cry. And these books make people change their job or their structure or the way they decide to walk through the world. And that’s the biggest privilege I think an author can have.
