Turkey Day Cometh Nigh

Tomorrow shall be a day of many thanks, many hugs, many memories made, and some wished to be forgotten. That's family and friends for you. Or, for some it may be a quiet day to relax with everything completely NOT related to a carbohydrate-heavy meal that will bring on a trip to sandman land.

Before you venture off to enjoy yourselves, I was tempted to do a rundown of all the things I'm thankful for. That would require so much typing it would be a novel all it's own. What I would like to share is something that had me smiling like the Cheshire cat when I saw it.

It's a link for the most recent review for Neverlove. Click here to read it, if you're so inclined. Thus far, I feel extremely blessed to have received 4 to 5 star ratings from my wonderful readers that have reviewed. In a sort of way, the reason I share this review is because I want to say how thankful I am to ALL of you, my writing community friends. Most of you are in faraway places, different parts of the USA, different parts of the world, but Neverlove may not have found life if not for my interactions and friendships formed because of this community.

I still quake at the thought of asking for reviews and asking for people to please buy my book, but I suppose I better deal with that in a timely manner, I think lol!!! Not a very good sales person, and I don't really want to "sell" Neverlove. I hope readers enjoy it enough to tell a friend and have their friends tell a friend and so forth and so on. Am I being too dreamy about this?

Le sigh.

To close, I simply want to say THANK YOU my bloggy buddies, one and all, and hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving :-)

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, and a lot to look forward to in the next year. (So the Mayans better be wrong!)

And I hear ya on the salesman thing. I am not very good at self-promoting.

Enjoy your holiday. I don't like turkey, so I talked my husband into making lasagne, too. Really.

Maria Zannini said...

Word of mouth is always the best salesperson. :)

Thank you. I'm still preparing my heart and mind so I can properly handle the reviews to come that won't be so heart-warming and fuzzy :-)

Congrats on the reviews, Angela. Marketing a product is never easy, but I guess we have to try. Create awareness. You're doing great. :)

Have a fun day :)

Tara Tyler said...

i think i will write a post about reviewing...sucks to ask, but you will want/need them someday...

happy holiday!!

Love the new blog look!! I would be rotten at asking for reviews. Luckily for me, Little A. isn't my big money-maker (ha!), so asking people to purchase or review isn't necessarily the game plan. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have everyone buy it, but as an ebook, picture books are not popular. Yet. Congrats on your great reviews so far!!
