I am feeling very grateful right now. I’m grateful that, after years of hard work, my debut novel FAITHFUL was represented by my wonderful agent Alyssa Eisner Henkin and bought by my talented editor Jen Bonnell and will be published next Thursday, May 13.
I’m grateful that I’m being supported by a blog tour – and especially grateful to the bloggers who are hosting me on the tour, taking their time and energy to let my voice be heard. On April 27 and 28, I was hosted in a lovely interview on Poisoned Rationality. On the 29th, Lauren gave me a long stretch of space on Lauren’s Crammed Bookshelf. And on the 30th, Reading Rocks 4 Me did a great interview, too.
This week, Chick Loves Lit hosted me on May 3, Cindy at Princess Bookie gave me a wonderful review along with my interview on May 4, Book Lovers Inc. interviewed me on May 5 along with Jan on Bookseedstudio and the Undercover Book Lover on May 6, and on May 7 and 8 I’m on Windowpane Memoirs with an interview and another lovely review.
To all of these bloggers – thank you so much.
Next week I’ll be visiting My Friend Amy, Ticket to Anywhere, Teenreads, Holly Cupala, and the Book Butterfly. Again – my warm thanks for letting me spend time with you all.
And to my cover designer, Jeanine Henderson, all I can say is, you are the best.
And as a reminder – this entire month, if you comment on any post – any one at all – I’ll put your name in the hat to receive a copy of FAITHFUL along with two cameo charms (see my April 30 post.) This is only one way I can say thanks to all of you, too.
