Happy Birthday, Brandi
Most everyone has a special "book supporter" in their lives. Mine is my daughter. She has read and re-read my manuscripts. When she was young, she would read Mississippi Blues in a perfect southern accent.
Rejections? The first person I called was Brandi. Always loyal, she'd say, "Their loss, Mom."
When Jennifer Lawler contacted me to say they wanted Wild Horses, I screamed, then cried. Brandi came tearing out of the other room to see what was wrong. When I told her nothing was wrong, but somebody actually wanted my book, she happy danced with me.
The other day, I saw her with her Kindle, reading.
"What are you reading?" I asked./
"Ride A Falling Star," she said.
"I could send it to you."
"I know," she answered, "but I want to support you."
I'm a lucky woman to have such a wonderful daughter. Happy birthday, Brandi. I love you to the moon and stars and back.
