What I'm Thankful for this Thanksgiving...

Heather Wardell is one of my favorite authors.  I've read and loved all 14 of her books, loving her emotional writing, gripping plots and characters that I can always relate to.  A few weeks ago, Heather emailed me and asked if I could read and review her upcoming novel, Fifty Million Reasons, in a week.  I don't usually accept requests for such a quick turnaround---the pressure inevitably gets to me and I get reviewer's block---but for Heather, I said yes.  

I wrote my review knowing that it would probably be used as part of the book's promotional material, and could be included in the front pages of the book.  What I didn't expect is that my blurb (which was really difficult to write, by the way!) would make the cover!!  

I'm so incredibly thrilled, honored, and excited to be on the cover of Heather's book.  It's really made my month; actually, my year.  Having a review quoted on the back cover of a book has been a long-time dream of mine, and it's so thrilling and humbling to have that dream become reality!  Thank you, Heather!!

PS: Of course I'm thankful for many other things (my family, my many blessings) but being quoted is what I'm most thankful for that's book related.  :)
