  1. Wow, Sarah! You are now my career idol. With my publication date in sight, I am beginning to see how publicity and finding an audience for a book can become a full-time job. But you’ve done it marvelously, while raising a family and finishing a second book!

    I haven’t gotten a chance to read The Opposite of Me yet, but it’s next in my queue of books–I can’t wait! Congratulations on an amazing launch!!

  2. I got my book in the mail and read flipped the pages and smelled it. My daughter said what are you doing? I told I love the smell of a new book. Then my wife took the book from me and told me I can read it when she’s done!

  3. Greg, as usual you’re cracking me up! Thanks so much, everyone – Eve, it is amazing how much effort goes into publicity. I’m still learning about it all and wish there was some central forum where we could all compare notes and ideas and help one another with that aspect of book publishing.
    Congrats Meredith!

  4. Yah! So glad that New York Journal of Books put up the review in time, I was little worried…sometimes they send me things to finalize last minute and approve but yours went up with no problem! So excited for you Sarah!
