Three Cheers for Readers!

Pretty sure I blew some sort of blogging gasket during my week long BBT.

I needed a few days of rest to refuel my blogging mojo.

Currently, I'm outlining a series of posts aimed at writers.

Yes, I know the title of this post suggests it will be all about the readers. And it is. In a round about, circling my brain, and finally out to you - The Reader, sort of way. You know, my typical way of thinking.

My hope is that this "writing series" of blogs, will not only be helpful for developing writers, but it will give readers a glimpse into the writing process. To see how a story takes shape.

But today, in this very post, I wanted to shine all the attention on The Reader and say, 

Your support of kind words and emails have made my heart soar to places I only day-dreamed about.

My current ranking on Amazon, and the success of my digital launch, is a direct result of readers being interested in Connor and the story he has to tell. So, Merci, Danka, Graci!

Here is my most favourite "review" that I received from a parent of a child who has Asperger's Syndrome:.

"I am so happy to have a glimpse into how my son thinks and why he does some of the things he does. Simply put, reading this book helped me to know my son better. I can't wait to share this with his teachers and family members. Thank you Ms Carmichael, from the bottom of my heart." - DB, Virginia, United States

P.S. This is why I write for children. 


  1. Hi Jodi-
    I loved this book review. How sweet! Exactly, that's why you wrote the book. Think of how many lives you'll influence.

  2. Hey Michelle,

    This review made me cry - blubber actually. And made me want to get to writing more of his adventures.

    And - totally loving your blog posts! Awesome writing tips and resources.

  3. I just looked at your Kindle Rankings! Congrats! Its great to have a little help from your friends.

    1. Reminds me of The Beetles' lyric - I get by with a little help from my friends.

      Best part - many of my pals are waiting to buy it when it comes out on KOBO, which is the Canadian equivalent to the NOOK.
