Blurb Heaven

Remember I told you I got a third blurb?

Wonderful author Rita Gardner read my book in one day and then sent me this:

“Brilliantly paced, weaving glimpses of the author’s past into an ever-tightening noose that engulfs Lene and her young family in adulthood, this memoir left me as breathless as if I’d read a thriller about an unstoppable killer circling its victim. Beautiful Affliction grips the reader and won’t let go until the very last page.”
—Rita M. Gardner, author of the award-winning memoir The Coconut Latitudes

Rita won Gold Award in the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards at Independent Book Publishing Association and also Gold Medal in the 2015 Indie Book Awards, category memoirs. I can’t tell you how honored I am that Rita took the time to read my book and endorse me, more than one tear has been shed (ok, quite a few).

I am SO happy for this blurb! (I already put it on the “BOOKS” page of this blog.) In fact I was so happy and grateful for Rita’s endorsement I have been happy all week!

And then I woke up yesterday morning to find my FOURTH blurb in my inbox! A blurb that knocked my socks off!

And more, yesterday my publicist presented my new website and it knocked my socks off again! (Not that we wear socks here in Indonesia 🙂 ) Can’t wait to move to my new digital home, and can’t wait to show you!

Rita suggested that the reader would like to see pictures of Anders and the girls after reading Beautiful Affliction, which I felt was excellent advice, so today I posted some pictures on my Facebook Author page.

So if you want to check them out, they are on Facebook for the time being, but we have plans to do something similar on the new website. Gaah! Can’t wait to show you!

Thanks for your support my friends, it means a lot to me,
