Amazing enough it was just a couple of days ago; it seems like weeks, that I got a new book via UPS. I love getting books shipped to me, ok I have been a little isolated lately, but things are really looking up for me. The book was “Late Bloomer” by Erica Scott.
I waited until after we had dinner and settled down to read. I had no idea just what I was in for. I did not want to stop but I read about half the book that night until I fell asleep. The next morning I started reading and completed the book that evening. It should not have taken this long to read but I was enjoying it so much I would stop every couple of chapters to savor the experience.
I finished the book disappointed that it was over and sat stunned for a bit. I wanted to contact her immediately. You are that Erica Scott! It’s really you! Don’t you realize who you are? … etc. I restrained my self and considered my options, for about 5 minutes. We had never actually met, but being a big fan of Shadow Lane and Eve Howard in particular I am pretty sure that I have seen and enjoyed her work. I just never put this together before.
I have already said that I love the book. I want to say that it’s a first but Erica has been an established author for years. This second published book, yes I do believe that “What Happens to Naughty Girls” counts as a published book, is so well crafted and well told that it should be a best seller.
Unfortunately I have no idea what it takes to make a book a best seller. I want to help if I can. Amazon accepted a review from me, my first, and I plan to also submit one to B&N. I think I may even buy a copy for my wife! I am not sure how much I can really help, I haven’t been doing this for a year yet and you have so much more experience than I do. Hold on what am I saying?
New Reading (clears throat)
Erica, my dear Erica, you will accept my help in promoting your book. You simply have no choice in the matter.
Dear CS — I do accept, and with much gratitude. Thank you for such lovely words on my book. 🙂
You are very brave. I will do what I can. Let me know where or when I can help.
