They Love Me In Seattle!

Well. . .not exactly.

Was checking my email this morning and saw that I had a google alert for my second book, Tangled Roots. I clicked through figuring that as usual it was a listing for an online bookstore. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Tangled Roots had been mentioned in an article in today's Seattle Times. The article was about "The Book Club" and African-American book club in Seattle. They were reading Tangled Roots this month. Wow, I thought. . . until I read the article. Seems not everyone in the club was enthralled with my book. Plus, there was a mention of a wedding in the book. There is no wedding in Tangled Roots. Not too sure where that came from. But as I read the rest of the article, I was relieved to see that the person mentioned, who initially wasn't impressed by the book. . .or me, was won over in the end by the humor. Wheew!

I'd like to send a great big THANK YOU to the ladies of "The Book Club" for taking the time to read Tangled Roots! I really appreciate it ; ).

So, ladies and gentleman what is the moral of this story? Is it that not everyone is going to love your work? Nope! I'd say that the real moral is: Keep 'em laughing and you can get away with murder! Pun intended.

Have a great weekend everyone!
