On giving thanks … even if it is a little early.

Published November 11, 2012 by mandileighbean

Thanksgiving is over a week away, but it is always a good time to be thankful.  I cannot even begin to put into words how thankful I am for all of the support, the compliments, and the love I have received from family, friends, colleagues and even former students concerning my debut novel, Her Beautiful Monster.  Realizing my dream of having my writing published is one thing, but to witness the incredibly positive reception but those that I love, admire, and respect the most is another thing entirely; it is almost too much to bear, the exceeding kindness and well-wishes.

My friends Shannon and Michael purchased the book and told me so via Facebook.

My cousin Tracey told me she couldn’t put it down.

My friend Shannon letting me know she received the book and what she thought of the setting.

My aunt Kim posted a picture of herself reading the book on Facebook.

My family and friends are amazing, as are my colleagues.  One teacher told me she loved it and approved of the twist.  Several others have ordered copies and are asking me to sign them.  This is truly a blessing and I am overwhelmed but, luckily I am a writer, so I am never at a loss for words.

Thank you everyone so much, and please, keep letting me know what you think about the book and continue to send pictures!
