She went to see one of her heroes, Author Diana Gabaldon, and in Terri fashion she was thrilled to be there and brought a lovely card for Diana so she would know what an inspiration she had been on Terri. And the platinum rule applied last night: nice things happen to nice people. Diana thanked her for the card, when she was busy with a room full of a thousand people, and then tweeted her out to her 53K followers today. For just starting out Indie author that's a great gesture.
It is the little gestures, the things we're sometimes are too busy to think to do, that are measure of who we are and that truly matter. I believe in the platinum rule: Nice things happen to nice people.
