Author Pal Appreciation!
So here is a behind-the-scenes publishing thing. When a book is still an uncorrected proof (or galley or ARC as they are sometimes called), its editor or author sends it out to key people to read. I get a lot of these. And I take it very seriously — I always seek to help my author pals, or authors just coming up. I’ve been so blessed; it’s the least I can do. I can’t read everything. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to parent, write, read, live, etc. So I know how much it takes to read, and to craft appropriate words of support. It’s not as easy as you think.
That’s why I am beyond grateful to the writers who have taken the time out of their massively busy lives to offer support for CONFESSIONS ON THE 7:45. My most heartfelt thanks to: Meg Gardiner, Linwood Barclay, Megan Miranda, Samantha Downing, Karen Hamilton and Sarah Pekkanen.
Every single one of them, without exception, is a writer at the top of the game, with an impressive body of work. These are bestselling, award-winning, and truly exceptional writers. And if you enjoy my work, you will most certainly enjoy theirs. So pick up any of their books and happy reading!
