Here are a few tidbits from the letters I've received over the past couple of months. Thank you SO much for your enthusiasm, dear readers, and for sharing my books with others. I've said it before and I'll say it again a million times - the BEST thing you can do for an author whose books you love is to tell others about them!! So THANK YOU for all you do to help spread the word!
Here's a cupcake for all of you, courtesy of Anna, who is a GREAT artist, wouldn't you say?

Oh Lisa, those are so sweet! So nice of them to take the time to write you and of course to share the books with everyone. Awhile back I ordered The Day Before for my sisters and sister in laws as well as donated a few copies. And I know my sisters at least have shared it with others and they wanted to know your other books. So yes, word of mouth is huge!ReplyDelete
