It's my CP, Kimberly G. Giarratano's big debut day for GRUNGE GODS & GRAVEYARDS! We're having a virtual book launch party, with posts throughout the day on our blogs. We're so happy you stopped by!
Today was a lot of fun guys! I'm so glad we were able to celebrate Kimberly's incredible achievement of having her book published. Now, before I call it a night, I though that it'd be nice to tell you how Kimberly and I became CP's.
I'm a member of the Query Tracker forum and a little over a year ago I saw a request from Kimberly, asking if anyone would be interested in reading the first 50 pages of her manuscript. I said yes and loved it from the start. Kimberly's writing is fantastic and immediately draws you in. And even now, one of the things that stood out to me the most was when she was describing the graveyard. I felt like I'd been teleported into one, instead of just sitting on my couch and reading about it on a computer screen.
A few months went by and I just happened to see on Kimberly's signature line on QT that GG&G was going to be published by Red Adept Publishing. I was so excited that I emailed her about it. Long story short, she asked if we wanted to be CPs. I jumped at the chance-- having such an excellent writer read my stuff? Heck, yeah!
Since then, I've benefited greatly from Kimberly's insight. I can honestly say that my YA historical fantasy wouldn't be near as strong without her input. But most importantly, more than just a CP, I have a friend in Kimberly. We've talked everything from books and writing to kids and marriage. I'm looking forward to the continuation of our friendship, and to seeing just what this writer's life is going to bring our way.
Love ya, girl, and last but not least, Happy Birthday, GRUNGE GODS & GRAVEYARDS! You're finally here!
