    Christina,
    I am SO honored. This weekend I’ll go back and read all the good advice from Meryl and Carrie.
    —It must be one of those wonders of the Universe that every book you’re sending has or will make a tremendous difference in my writing life:
    –I have gifted several copies of WriterMama and will continue to do so to my writer friends who need inspiration. That was the book that started it all.
    –Get Known is a fantastic primer for more than just preparing for book deals. It teaches any professional — writer or not — how to position and market their services. I love it and refer my clients to it constantly.
    –After reading Thirsty, I know why you encouraged Kristin to keep writing. She is amazingly talented. And as I have a manuscript review scheduled with her in early November, I am motivated to find time every day to work on my novel, even if its just a few stolen minutes between deadlines.
    –Cindy Hudson’s Mother-Daughter Book Club intrigued me, but I had too many irons in the fire in Sept. to take action. With a copy in hand I’ll be able to give this concept my attention over the holidays. After all, I have a 22-year-old daughter in grad school who has always loved to read and shows potential as a writer, and a 18-year-old daughter, a Freshman at CU Boulder, who just started reading for pleasure in high school but is so terrible at writing my friends ask if she’s really my daughter. Perhaps if I’d started an MD-book club with her earlier, writing wouldn’t be so painful to her now.

    Thank you again for the recognition. You’ve inspired me to make time to pursue what’s important to me, and not just what’s important to c3PR.

    Best,
    –Mar

    Christina,
    Thanks so much! I enjoyed participating and I’m still digesting all of the amazing things I learned here. I will happily gift my new copies of Writer Mama and Getting Known Before the Book Deal to the next writer mama in need.

    Thank you for inspiring a great community of writers!

    Warmly,
    Carrie

    Oh my goodness. What a surprise! I simply enjoyed having the opportunity to write about a variety of things that I wouldn’t write about and hearing from others. I’m halfway through THIRSTY and it’s gripping. At first, I thought the abuse would be hard for me to handle, but Kristin has done an amazing job touching on it.

    I have a teen daughter and would love to connect with her on reading. She did — incredibly — take one book suggestion from me. Read the Georgia Nicolson books by Louise Rennison. I hope to read those someday.

    I look forward to sharing all four amazing books with others as they should not be kept a secret.

    Best,
    Meryl
