Trish made this collage of my Indiana Jones novels, which features Staff of Kings at the center and enlarged. That’s a joke of sorts, since the book was never published, and is considered among Indy fans as the Lost Indiana Jones novel.
I put the collage up on Instagram and a short time later, I received a link to an on-line magazine with an article about lost tie-in novels, including Staff of Kings. At first glance, it seems that the person who sent it had seen my post and remembered the article and sent it to me. But that wasn’t it at all.
It was sent to me by the author of the article, telling me that it had just been published that morning. I doubt that he’d even seen the collage. Interestingly, it wasn’t a case of cause and effect on his part or mine. In fact, I forgotten all about the article. The writer had interviewed me weeks earlier. Yet that was the day I posted the collage featuring the unpublished novel, the topic of the article.
Go figure. That’s how synchronicity works. Magic!
