Notes from Nadir on Kindle: First Review!

Thank you for all the congratulations I've received on getting "Notes from Nadir" from blog form to Kindle form! It went through a lot of expansion and editing to refine it to its current version. 

Fiction and non-fiction writer/blogger Talli Roland was kind enough to review a copy of Notes from Nadir. Not only am I pleased with her five-star review, I thank her for the summary she has supplied!

"I first started reading this memoir through the author's blog, and I was quickly hooked by her conversational, down-to-earth style. The book - with lots of new content not featured on the blog - follows the author as she leaves behind her LA life and returns to her roots, with lots of vignettes and familial snapshots along the way. A very enjoyable read about trying to fit back into a mould you no longer fit." Link to Amazon UK version.

I'd also like to let you know about Talli's blogfest to help her forthcoming novel, The Hating Game, out on December 1st when it makes a gigantic splash on Amazon!


December 1st is the date to remember!

Good to see you here! I want to see it in print myself! The earliest it will [probably] happen will be in the early part of 2011.
