Novel Confirmations

Sometimes as an author you wonder if your books are really out there. Is anyone hearing your voice? Of course blogging helps, but still. Your novels. Are they being read?

And then confirmation flies in when you don't expect it. This last time it was from two people in one week.

Book Chic

Book Chic in Washington D.C. was sweet enough to write:

"So I'm now volunteering at my local public library and I'm at the front desk taking in checked out materials and guess what I saw today? Someone brought in On Pointe! I had no idea my library even had that book of yours, so I'll definitely have to check it out sometime."

Ha! Fantastic!

And then the wonderful author Melissa Walker sent me these photos from her phone! She ran across On Pointe in a tiny library in Vermont.

And the copy had been donated in memory of a dear love.

Okay. That's enough to warm my heart. My whispers are being heard. How nice is that? Thanks, BC and Melissa!

So glad you realize you're being read! Sometimes tangible evidence is nice!

My library has a copy of Loose Threads, I remember checking it out way back when whispers of readergirlz were very first beginning... :)

Let me see - I read On Pointe and Hold Me Tight at the store, while Loose Threads was a library copy!
