Some Early Endorsements for my Novel

First I have to say WOW! I got a personal record number of comments on my rebellious post. Thanks everyone for weighing in with your thoughts. I really appreciate that. All I know for sure is, it's gonna be a fun ride whatever happens.

I've received some feedback from a few readers of my latest novel. I'd thought I'd share their endorsements with you:

"Nice job. I really liked it. And I'm not just saying that because I'm your husband." --My Husband

"This book is awesome! And I'm not just saying that because you're my mom." --My Son

"It's really good. I loved the characters. It flows very well. I couldn't put it down. And I'm not just saying that because I'm your daddy. (And p.s. I liked the 'holy crap!' line.)" --My Dad
(Yeah, I like the "holy crap!" line too.)

Seriously, I do believe and cherish the praise and positive feedback from the people I love. Thanks, fam! You're the best!

Now, all you other beta readers--do your worst!

I just sent two books out to be looked over by people I don't know and it's so different because I care both more and less what they think than my family and close friends.
Though - I hope their opinions continue to count the most.

Theresa Milstein said...

I can tell you have awesome fans.

T. Anne said...

Yay for positive feedback! I'd live in a bubble of positivity if it were possible. ;)

Joanne said...

Family is wonderful, isn't it? Those blurbs belong on the back of the book!

I love the caveat's in each one. ;)

I'm super excited for you!

Karen Lange said...

Love it! Where would we be without family support? What a blessing. Looking forward to hearing about your progress.
Blessings,
Karen

Mary Campbell said...

lol - So great that your family likes it. I can't even get my family to read my stuff. I look forward to reading it someday.

Elana Johnson said...

Oh, I can only hope to get blurbs half that good for my books. I don't actually let my family read them...

Christine Fonseca said...

hahaha! Everyone needs some good cheerleaders in their corner!

I like any dad who enjoys a "holy crap" line. :)

I remember giving my niece, years ago, an earlier version of my debut novel Dead Frog on the Porch and she said: 'wow, you're like a real writer.' cool praise! enjoy yours!

Angie said...

That is cool, Jan. I am enjoying mine, too. I especially love it that my boys can read and enjoy my books now.

Wicked-Sassy said...

I don't know why more of those endorsements don't make it onto books. or maybe I just think they're great because my family is more like, "Yeah... pretty decent... when are you going to get a real job?" lol
