Thank You, Susan Santangelo!

Almost always when I'm drafting a post for Teaser Tuesday, First Chapter/First Paragraph/Tuesday Intros, Book Beginnings on Friday, or The Friday 56, I contact the book's author and let them know that one of their books will be featured. I offer them the opportunity to participate by responding to readers' comments on the post itself, as well as mentioning my post on Twitter, Facebook, and anywhere else they want. Some authors are interested; others aren't.

I understand. Maybe I've chosen to post about their book on a day when they have another commitment. Or maybe they have something in their real life that takes precedence. We all have to prioritize. I just think it's fun when an author shows up and answers questions and comments. Don't you?

So that's why I'm sending out a gigantic THANK YOU to Susan Santangelo. She accepted my invitation to participate in yesterday's post and graciously spent a lot of time responding to people who left comments. I enjoyed reading her comments and sincerely appreciate her involvement.

Best of luck for your upcoming release, Susan. Funerals Can Be Murder is Book 5 in the Carol and Jim Andrews Baby Boomer Mystery series and is scheduled for release on October 7; but it's available for pre-order on Amazon right now ($3.99 in ebook formats).

And by the way, many other authors have also contributed to posts in the past. A big thank you to all of them too!


  1. Since I always have to have the last word (just ask my husband), I had to say a great big thank you to Sandy and everyone who posted! I had so much fun!

  2. How did I miss this post? I'm going off to check it now....

    1. Okay, senior moment here...I focused in on the NEW title and didn't recognize it...but, of course, the post was on a different title. LOL

    2. Senior moments happen to me every day. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who suffers from this affliction. Thanks for stopping by, Laurel-Rain.


Thank you for visiting "Writing With a Texas Twang." All comments are sincerely appreciated. Tell me what you think!
