(One author thanks a specific book blogger...do you have a story like this?)
Thanks to Carrie from Words-to-Mouth
I’ve been amazed by the generous, thoughtful ways in which many book bloggers shared their reactions to my memoir and helped spread the word. What a cool group of people to get to know! One review was extra special, because it led to an ongoing online dialog and a fun new friendship:
Carrie from Words-to-Mouth first reviewed my book in mid-June. She mentioned a couple of things she wished I’d covered more thoroughly: why I had such a deep sense of insecurity when I was younger, given that my family was (is) loving and intact, and what my dreams and passions were other than finding the right man. Her questions made me think, and inspired me to answer them in two posts on my own blog (and reveal that the strange dream of my college days was owning and running a private prison).
Carrie posted my responses on Word-to-Mouth, which generated quite a bit of reader response…always a fun thing for a blogger! Based on this, she invited me to do a podcast interview with her as a part of her Quick & Wordy series, which gave us a chance to know each other better and talk about relationships, spirituality…all kinds of good stuff.
This has definitely been a highlight of my first-book adventure…Thank you Carrie!
