Appreciating my blogger buds, Post #8

As promised, during the month of February I'll be publicly thanking each of the bloggers who is participating in my Free Books for Bloggers experiment. When any of those bloggers shoots me an e-mail to tell me they've posted, I'll give up some linky love.

I knew when I sent a copy of A Family Forever to my e-pal Mirtika, who admits to having burned out on category romance (and canceling her Love Inspired subscription) a few years back, that she wasn't likely to enjoy my book. But I also knew she'd produce an in-depth review that would make for some interesting reading. Check it out. And thanks for posting, Mir.

Here's something that totally charmed me: A few weeks ago, Amy Anderson e-mailed and asked for a copy of my book to review. Trouble was, Amy didn't have a blog. I'll let her tell you the rest:

...I am never one to pass up a free book, so I started my very own blog. If you never hear from me again after today, you know I ran out of steam, but kept my promise!

She did, indeed. And I am grateful. Welcome to the blogosphere, Amy!

Susan Kaye has written a detailed review at her blog, WordWorking. She enjoyed my book, but also lists a couple of things she didn't like about the story. I'm always fascinated to hear which portions of my stories resonated with or failed to engage individual readers, so I very much appreciated her post.

I'm also indebted to Ruth over at BookTalk and more... for blogging today about A Family Forever.

Well, hi! I don't think you've posted here in a while. (Not that I'm taking attendance or anything.)

Hey, the link to my review is bad.

Yours has a backslash after html. Maybe I sent it wrong to you?


Brenda Coulter said...

Fixed. My apologies, Mir. And thanks again for blogging about my book.
