So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.
Small Great Things– My review will be up tomorrow on Throwback Thursday.
Cold blood by Robert Bryndza– My favorite series is back! I got the ARC and immediately read it. My review will be up on publication date, September 20th.
The Girl Who Came Back by Kerry Wilkinson
This is my third book by Kerry. I liked his previous title so I can’t wait to see how this goes. I am a few chapters in and enjoying it so far.
The Surrogate by Louise Jensen
It is Bookouture week! This is another ARC that I can’t wait to read. I love all books by Louise Jensen so I am pretty excited about this one.
From my own TBR, I will read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.
My Book: The Cliques gets reviewed in a national newspaper
‘Diana Gitau has written an engrossing account in the first person that absorbs you all the way to the end.’
I spoke about my book, The Cliques sometime back on this post here. As I mentioned in that post, I didn’t know what to do to get publicity for my book. The book is only available in Kenya(not yet on amazon) and in print only so there are no review copies. However, the reblogs that I got after my first post were really helpful in creating an online presence for the book and I also got a blog review a few weeks ago which was amazing.
Yesterday, I received a call informing me that another review(my second one) had been published. This one was in one of the national newspapers. Daily Nation is like Kenya’s equivalent of The New York Times. Its major and definitely not easy to get that kind of publicity. I was so excited when a friend told me about the review. And then the inquiries and orders started coming in. I spent last evening answering questions and working with the publishers to meet the increased demand. It still feels surreal. I can’t believe that the book is out there and its no longer a just dream. Its actually in bookshelves in bookstores and personal libraries. Its amazing and crazy but mostly, simply amazing 😀
Here is the link to the newspaper review.
So, what are you reading? Let me know in the comments section.
