Links and Launches


Phew! Who knew releasing a book could be so all encompassing? Sorry for my absence and sorry for making all my recent posts about the book. It's the nature of a launch and I promise not to spend the entire summer blathering on and on and on about the book, the book, the book.

Since I have to spend time doing launch stuff over this weekend, I thought I would link to two great posts I read recently thanks to friends of mine who are great writers.

Here's one:

And here's the other:

What's on your summer stack? I will be back Monday to post my list. Thanks to all of you who are hanging in there with me as I get through this launch and on with normal (what's that??) life!
Pin It!

Marybeth,

I got your book for my birthday and devoured it over the weekend - LOVED IT! Can't wait to see what your next one will be. The only bad thing I have to say is that I was sad for it to end, I wanted more story. The writing is brilliant, the characters real and believable, and the story line was relevant. I hope someday you will be inspired to revisit these characters in a second installment.

I have to say I am not a huge fan of a lot of Christian fiction as it can be very predictable and somewhat sappy. The Mailbox far exceeded my expectations. I hope some day to visit the real mailbox and see your favorite beach and walk in the footsteps of your characters.

Wishing you much success on your book sales!

Loved your book! Once I started reading, I could hardly put it down. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of vacations spent on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I am recommending it to all my reader friends and family.

May God bless your journey as an author!
