As a writer, one of the most excruciating periods is when your book goes live. After all the months of slaving over this character and that, what dialogue, where are they . . . finally it is all edited and packaged. Next comes the step of introducing the world to your work. Gahhh….anxiety producing to say the least. This week, I think I consumed at least 10 pounds of carbs and empty wine calories awaiting the response to Flying Solo.
I was humbled when a dear friend sent a picture of the first copy of FLYING SOLO on her kitchen table. It was real! But, luckily. . . .sigh . . . here are some of the first reviews:
Mary Morton Jones: “It was slow at work, so I started reading. Right from the start it was HOT, HOT, HOT. I got irritated when customers came and in interupted my reading.”
Tricia O’Connell Hamilton: “I started reading and I couldn’t put it down. I almost missed my daily walk. Couldn’t wait to get back to it. I am very impressed.”
New Orleans resident: “This morning on our 5 1/2 hour ride home I started reading your novel. I could not put it down and finished it tonight. You are a very talented writer! I emailed my friends and told them to read your book – they would love it especially based in New Orleans . . .- ha Congratulations! You did a wonderful job! I can’t wait for your next book!”
John Randolph Clark: “As a person who has always been around aviation, I have to say that this book makes one feel that you are right there in the cockpit! This is a journey of the driving human spirit that lies within all of us, including the dream to actually take wings and fly. Mix in the unconquerable perseverance of a woman, who seeks to find her real niche in the scheme of life, and you have a story that is very compelling, fascinating to the last page, and a credit to the writing of true adventure! If you want a gripping story, than look no further than this page turner that keeps you on the edge of your chair.”
Wow. . . I am just in awe. So happy that both men and women are liking the story. I can now breathe. Uh oh . . . does that mean it is now time for Weight Watchers? Eeeek!
