Dear Friends:

I promise I won’t inundate you with book stuff!  But I really want to share some good news from the first days after my book was released online:

  1. Diane Taylor, author of The Gift of Memoir, (an excellent go-to book on memoir-writing) was the first to review my book. A very nice review, though it also made me cry.
  2. I got to hold the first copy of An Honest House in my own hands on Wednesday.

  3. And author and book blogger Kev Cooper, of  Kev’s Raves and Reviews, gave the book a big shout-out this week.  

Thank you both, Kev and Diane!

  1. I just got my copy this week. Have only had a bit of time to read, but have thoroughly enjoyed the first few chapters. You have a gift with words. It is one of those books it is hard to put down. …Thank you for being willing to write it.

    1. Thanks hugely, Karen. Readers like you who choose early to buy a book (even before the reviews are in) are giving a valuable vote of confidence which an author really appreciates.

  2. The reference to Diane’s review is not hyperlinked. Check that.

  3. What a wonderful moment it must have been to hold that crisp new book in your hands. So much love and work in those pages. Savour the moment!

  4. Congratulations Cynthia! Wow! Another great book. Maybe you would like to visit us at Scarborough Garden and Hort and read some of the garden passages to us. Then get to sign copies of your book. I know we are looking to fill October with a variety of speakers. Maybe two or three speakers on different topics – we’d like to try something different.

    1. I’d love to, Lee. There are lots of great moments about the flower garden and veggie garden in this book. (And apparently, there’s also lots of delicious food in the book!) Thank you for your kind comment.

    1. It is, and each special for a reason. The first one was mostly written over the 25 years before the accident. Book 2 is the first one I’ve written from scratch post-accident, and it only took me 3 years of stops and starts! Thank you.

  5. Ah there’s nothing like holding the actual finished article in your hands… well done and congratulations! I will look forward to reading it!

    Cheers
