This Week with Mary



So much has happened since my last post I don't know where to begin.  First, I completed the blog tour where 10 wonderful bloggers reviewed Deadly Pleasures and posted their comments on their blog and on Amazon.com on the Deadly Pleasures Page. The reviews were intuitive and complimentary, and I thank them all. Their sites are posted below if your would like to visit them. Then, an advertisement by Rising Star, iUniverse was in the New York Times Book Review, and there was Deadly Pleasures with a copy of the cover as part of this full page ad called, Classics for Your Collection. What a thrill to see the book in the NYT. And, if that is not enough,  I received a bunch of copies of Publisher's Weekly and found a blurb of my book in their new section for Indie Authors. I know that my dear Bill is looking down from heaven and saying, "Go Mary." He always had such faith in me, and I miss him. At the moment, there is something big in the wind. I don't know if it will occur but I am keeping a good thought.  I will let you know what it is next time. So, bye for now, or as they say in England. TTFN (Ta Ta For Now).  Mary Firmin

If I had a week like you've had, I'd be doing cartwheels! (Okay. Maybe just mental cartwheels.) Congratulations! I hope all this lovely exposure will result in tons of sales for you.

Hi Mary and congrats!!!

How did you manage Publisher's weekly and NYT's--my dream to be reviewed by them. I haven't tried because I heard you have to sell at least 1000 books before they will even consider you. I'm not an Indie writer or that might have helped--sometimes you just can't win. I think I knowwhere you're going next and wish you tons of luck.
