A big thank you to James Lloyd Davis for this lovely post!

When someone you know writes a novel, you wish them the best. You've read it and you know it's excellent, easily world class literature. Both MaryAnne and I h...ave read it. We'd seen parts of it when it was a work in progress, so we knew Cherise was on her way, but here's just a bit more praise and a possible boost from a source that carries some weight.
You must read this book.

Campaign for The American Reader is a very cool blog! It's very worthwhile initiative is to encourage more readers to read more books. There are author intervie...ws, posts on what authors are reading, authors dissecting page 69 or page 99 in their books, etc. The founder, Marshal Zeringue, asked if I would write about what I'm reading.

THE RESURRECTION OF JOAN ASHBY has been named a Booksellers' Pick for Publishers Weekly's Holiday Gift Guide! As the New York Journal of Books said, "Every mother who has sacrificed her ambition and talents for motherhood will find she is reading about herself. Every husband and wife whose marriage is torn apart will gain new perspectives from reading this novel. Every adult child who wonders about their parents’ relationship to one another and to themselves and their siblings will find a mirror shard here."

Everything in the world sucks, there's no confusion about that, but what's given me sparkling rays of sunshine each day are the handwritten letters I've been receiving from readers of THE RESURRECTION OF JOAN ASHBY. That readers take the time to write a letter to me, to find my publisher's address, to find an envelope and a stamp -- in this world that rarely writes letters anymore -- and to send it, just amazes me. I am so grateful and appreciative for these intense readers, ...for their desire to express how my novel moved them, where it sits prominently in their local bookstore, asking me when my next novel will be coming out, asking me if I will be coming to their towns to do readings, to sign books, to give writing classes, telling me how they've been grappling with their own lives and the choices they didn't mean to make, after reading the novel. It's a joy to have written a book that spurs these kinds of passionate missives. And I write back to every single person. A handwritten note that goes into an envelope with a stamp and is mailed.
