Thanks to everyone who has sent me a note or email with praise for Plastic. I'm thrilled to hear which stories resonate most with each reader. It's also lovely to hear compliments about the book, of course.
Last month, my publisher forwarded an email he had received from a reader. She wrote that Plastic "is written with such precision and grace and is sympathetic to its characters without ever sinking into hysteria or getting maudlin. A great story on a timely subject. A great book for book clubs."
This message delighted me for two full days. Someone who doesn't know me picked up my book and enjoyed it so much she felt compelled to write the publisher. Every writer dreams of making this kind of impact on her audience.
So the next question for me was how do I get the book into the hands of more readers and on book club lists, as suggested in the email?
Well, dear friends and readers, one way is for you to share your thoughts by writing reviews on Amazon, Goodreads or other social media sites. Two people have already added reviews on Amazon. Thanks so much, Liz and Michelle!
If you read the book and enjoyed it, please consider posting your feedback to spread the word.
I am working on a press release to promote my upcoming book tour as well. Fingers crossed, an interview or two will follow.
Thanks so much for your help and support!
