And I could not be more excited! Take a gander at what bloggers, magazines and bookstores are saying about Rurally Screwed.
Breathe Magazine Editor-in-chief Marissa Hermanson writes “when not laughing out loud, I also found myself misty-eyed or thinking, ‘You tell him, sister!‘”
It’s Not You, It’s the Dishes Paula called me the “world’s best wife” and somewhere Satan laughs.
Ramblings of a Marine Wife Kara said RS “is one of the better books I’ve read in a while” and that she admired my honesty in writing about “the complexities of marriage (kudos on that one because I wouldn’t want to be honest in a book my husband will read).” Yeah, well, that’s ’cause her husband is a buff marine! Mine is skinny army.
Oprah.com Yes, Oprah Dot Freaking Com! And it’s not a review, per se, but a mention of RS in a larger post about military life and Solha.
Dave’s Fiction Warehouse Okay, it’s my dad….he’s genetically obligated to like my book, but I’m still including his post because validation from Father Knadler means so much.
Crunchy Con Mom This conservative blogger admits straight up that she didn’t like my book at the beginning but that I was “undeniably likable and funny” and that “if I lived in the same town as her, I could definitely be friends with Jessie K.” AAAAAAAAAAAAND score.
The reviewer for Watermark Books, the beloved independent bookstore in Wichita, Kansas, said she “started out laughing at the beginning of the book” and ended it “with a tear in my eye.” So now it can be said: “You’ll laugh. You’ll cry when you read Rurally Screwed.”
(Unctuous cheese ball alert!) If you liked the book, feel free to write your own review on Amazon or Barnes & Nobles or any of the book social networking sites. I don’t exactly have a big publicity machine behind me — Danielle Steele I’m not — so every word of mouth recommendation helps.
