We here at the Writers' Group couldn't be more pleased for our fellow bloggers on the occasion of their long-awaited books finally being published. We've read along as they got their book deals, covers, pub days, revamped covers, revamped pub days, and first fan mail. Congratulations to Therese Fowler, Eileen Cook, and Carleen Brice. You did it!
Checking out far-reaching bookstores is always exciting! I did a back flip when I found Lynne's title, Negotiation Generation here in California last September. My mom in Montreal called that same week to say it was in her local bookstore, too. Congrats Eileen, Therese, and Carleen. I'll be spreading the word far and wide!
Here's to local bookstores, too, when it comes to new titles. I do order from Amazon now and then, and have done so sometimes in the hopes those purchases get noticed by publishers, but it's the local, independent bookstore that (a) gets that book right away if they don't have it already, of course, and (b) takes special notice when someone local asks for a title. Congratulations to Therese, Eileen and Carleen!
When we first met each of these authors via our blog community, we were thrilled to learn of their upcoming debuts. Over the year or so, we've been generously given an inside view on the process. Thank you to each of you! Now at this exciting time, we're sure to hear more about their dreams come true. Congratulations, Carleen, Eileen and Therese. I'm so happy for all of you. And by the way, you all have books that really capture the eye. They really stand out, especially on those bookstore front tables.
