I’d like to first thank Fresh Fiction for inviting me to blog on their wonderful site – Thanks so much! I’m so lucky to have such great support from the various book websites and review sites throughout the Internet. It has been one of many unexpected surprises when I became a published author. Another happy and unexpected result has been reader emails. Now some of you may be thinking, of course you’d get emails. But I had been so focused on getting my story published; that I hadn’t really considered what would happen once the book hit the shelves. Click to read the rest of Maria’s blog and to comment.
