The Weekend Edition - Talking to the Dead News
So I wrote this book. . .
But you know that, already. While we're all tapping our toes to the countdown to June 1, when Talking to the Dead releases, I wanted to share with you some exciting news.
It's actually a bit difficult to talk about - not because it's complex, but because it's about "me". I think every author has weird feelings talking about her own work and successes. But, whooshie feelings aside, I'm very excited about this bit of news, and I just can't help but share it with you!
I have been fortunate enough to have many amazing authors read Talking to the Dead and endorse the book. When I look a the list of names who are reading and endorsing the book, I have a sense that it must be a different book, a different author they are reading. Each of them is a writer I admire - emulate, hope to be when I grow up.
Recently an e-mail showed up in my in-box. It was from my publisher. News about a certain author who had read Talking and offered her endorsement:
"It isn’t often that I get so hooked on the characters and story that I forget time and purpose. Talking to the Dead caught hold of my heart from page one. It takes a gifted and intuitive writer like Bonnie to bring humor into the middle of such a serious story. Call her the Jodi Piccoult of Christian fiction! Beautifully done! I can’t wait to read the next story she writes.” - Francine Rivers, bestselling author of Redeeming Love
