Surprise!

21 09 2009

When I checked my mail recently, I found a lovely surprise. Blogger Keli Gwyn, who had hosted me at  Romance Writers on the Journey sent me a thank-you gift. How thoughtful is that??!! A darling little tablet in its own case and refrigerator magnet. But best of all, they were personalized with my initial, so I know she picked it out just for me. I’ve never had anyone give me a gift for being a guest blogger, so I was doubly thrilled.

Even better was the experience I had when Keli interviewed me. She’s very professional and super organized. The questions arrived a month before the blogging date. She asked that I choose 8 of her very extensive and thought-provoking questions and return them a week before the interview. Then she added her comments, edited the blog, and sent it to me for approval before it was posted. What a great way to insure that the blog is error free! And it’s a testament to her organizational skills and efficiency. She was a dream to work with. Bloggers who are interviewing authors could take a page from Keli’s book. Who knows, you might even find the author will end up blogging about YOU.

Keli Gwyn

Laurie, I received a pingback notification from WordPress today letting me know someone had linked to my blog, Romance Writers on the Journey. I followed the link, and I found this post. WOW! You made my day. Thanks for your many kinds words.

I’m glad you enjoyed your experience as my guest. I was delighted to have you and to share in the excitement of your anthology contribution and debut novel. I wish you all the best in your career as a published novelist.
