Author Correspondence

Hothouse Flower by Lucinda Riley is one of the Richard and Judy Spring Reads and I recently reviewed only days ago on this blog.

I found the author’s website and decided I would like to write and say thank you for such a wonderful book. Something that I have never done before but felt compelled to do. Now the cynic in me, thought that I would get a response from some minion to say “thanks for the comments, we will pass it on to the author, she was glad you liked the book”.

However, I got an email back from the author herself. What a delight! Lucinda praised me for my review, it is posted on Amazon as well and also gave me a few details about how the book is doing…. “coming in 4th biggest for Richard and Judy sales in the first week at WHSmiths”. Which is great for a debut author and a book which had NO PR/Publicity campaign behind it, Lucinda went on to tell me.┬áIt is all down to word of mouth. So this post is to spread that word of mouth further.

Please note that I am not receiving anything from the author for this post. Just like I was compelled to write to Lucinda Riley I have felt compelled to write this post and share my email with you all. Especially as she has obviously taken the time to read my blog (and Jessica she picked up your comment, go and have a read it makes me smile!).

I look forward to further correspondence with Lucinda Riley and if there is anything exciting to tell you all, I promise I will share it.
