“New York Times” Selling Author

Hear me out on this one:

  1. I used to work in a pharmacy.
  2. At that pharmacy, I would occasionally ring people up for things. Newspapers, for instance.
  3. Those newspapers included The New York Daily News, Newsday, and The New York Times.1
  4. I write stuff; therefore, I am an “author”.
  5. I am thus qualified to introduce myself as “New York Times Selling Author eD! Thomas” in perpetuity.
  6. Profit(?)

It’s not the weakest logic-train I’ve ever boarded, so I think I’m going to run with it.


  1. We also carried The New York Post, the Weekly Reader of New York newspapers.
