Sweet and Bittersweet




Check out the top right hand corner of SEALed with a Ring. Do you see the quote up there? Look at who was quoted!!

ME!!!!

I can't believe that one of my reviews was quoted on the cover of a book. I am just tickled pink, as if you couldn't tell. I didn't discover that I was quoted on the book until I went to the RWA signing and met Mary Margaret Daughtridge, the author of the book's cover on which I was quoted.

She gave me a bookmark that had a picture of all her books and news about an upcoming release. I was using the bookmark at home for the latest book I was reading and I stopped to look at the bookmark. I caught a glimpse of the quote and read it. It didn't even register at first that it was me who was quoted. I felt my heart start pounding and then read it again to make sure I read it correctly.

The ironic part of the whole thing is that when I met Mary Margaret Daughtridge I didn't tell her that I was Romance Rookie. I figured she wouldn't know who I was and now looking back I realize I was quoted on her book cover. I completely regret that I didn't introduce myself and tell her I reviewed all three of her books. Who knows if or when I might ever have the chance to meet her again.

*sigh*

Funny thing. I went back to that review to see if I really did write "A fun, clever and emotionally gripping story" and sure enough I did, word for word.

Ah Ladies, you are too kind! Thanks for all the well wishes. I do appreciate it. It's so nice to share something like this with others who will appreciate it.

I told my Mom about it. And while she was excited for me, she just didn't "get it".
