It’s a happy day here in New Jersey (where Caleb and I are currently visiting his beautiful family). My editor returned Mile 445 to me with the second round of edits complete. She gave a great review of the book, saying, “I would be hard pressed to find any downside to this fascinating story.”
Maybe I’m tooting my own horn by sharing the above, but in the words of my granddad Papa, “She who does not tooteth her own horn may never have it tootethed.”
Really, I’m excited and eager to share this upbeat and encouraging news that those in the literary world find Mile 445 to be an incredible adventure and quality read. I can’t wait to get it in your hands. Just a few more steps/weeks and the book will be ready for its release.
In the meantime, here’s a snippet of what my editor, Cindy @ CreateSpace, had to say about Mile 445:
“Mile 445 is a lively, engaging story of one woman’s hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. I would be hard pressed to find any downside to this fascinating story. What could have been dull, descriptive text was created in a lively, fresh narrative, with lots of interesting—and very well defined—characters. The “hook” in the story is her meeting the love of her life and getting married. The dialogue is real and fresh, and the reader continues to wonder what happens next, right until the very end.”
