Chance Meeting

I felt good enough this morning to take my laptop to a favorite coffee shop and work on book three in my Happy Valley series. The place was busy, but not crowded when I arrived, so I ordered my tea and found a place to plug in as it was prepared.

No sooner had I typed in my password than my name was called and I scurried over (I’m a great scurrier) to pick up my order. As I snagged my cup of Sunrise Roobios, a young man caught my eye. Actually, his sweatshirt caught my eye. It was a warm gold hoodie with the word Sneaux. emblazoned on it in black lettering. I complimented him on it and asked where he’d gotten it.

“I made this,” he said. “I own SneauxBalls.”

I must’ve looked puzzled (what’s new about that?) and he elaborated. His company makes snowball treats: Finely crushed ice in a paper cone doused with a specially crafted syrup. Very tasty stuff.

We exchanged names—his is Jarrett Maloy, and I told him I’d like to buy one of his sweatshirts. He gave me the address for his business, and voila!

Jarrett and moi. He opened his shop early just for me!

Jarrett Maloy is my new marketing hero, and he certainly gave me some ideas about ways to get my book titles out there. And get this, Jarrett is a family name in my world and holds a special place in my heart. We were meant to meet today.

We talked books and I learned he and his twin daughters have published a coloring book on Amazon featuring the flavors of his company’s Sneauxballs. Clever, right?

I love it when the world works like this. Check Jarrett out on Facebook at JMo’s SneauxBall. And if you happen to live in the Tallahassee area, pay him a visit at 2033 S. Adams, St.

Peace, people!
