My first published blurb!!!


Wow, this very cool! I was catching up on some blog reading (I'm very behind, as usual) at She is Too Fond of Books and I see that Unbridled Books has released the paperback of In Hovering Flight (I reviewed it in December). They chose blurbs from some blogger reviews to put in the paperback, including She is Too Fond of Books, My Friend Amy, BookingMama, Caribu's Mom and....me! I'm so flattered to be included, Unbridled has been one of most supportive publishers of book bloggers, they are just fantastic to work with. Thank you, Unbridled!

Congratulations, everyone! (And thanks to Dawn for posting about it!) How fun is this?

Off to the bookstore to see the blurbs in person....

This is so awesome! I actually got a copy of the book a few weeks ago and treasure it because of all of your blurbs.

Were you able to find the paperback at your bookstore?! All my friends are asking "what was quoted?!?" and I tell them ... go buy the book and find out! :)

Congratulations!

That is so cool! Book Bloggers are having a real, positive impact on book sales, and they're recognizing it.

I don't know if I've mentioned this to you before. I host a group called New England Bloggers on my blog. Check it out and leave a comment if you'd like to be included.

Good going. I reviewed the hardcover a year ago and I'm jealous-in a nice way. I always found Unbridled Books so nice to deal with too. And I'm happy the book is getting more attention, it deserves it.

About Me

My photo
New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
