How Wonderful! I love it! Congrats!

I love that cover!

Yep, even if I didn't know you, my hand would be reaching for this book on the shelf. This is one that I'll be looking out for, and I'll make sure to 'rearrange' it so that it's in a more prominent position when it makes it over to the U.K.!

Dear Danette,

I love your book Violet Raines almost got struck by lightning. It has great emotion. To me the characters come alive. My favorite part of the book is when they’re doing the catfish fry out and Violet shows Melissa the fish’s gouts. She almost passes out.

Your book is great but it’s like every other girl book. You only changed it by adding the lighting. It has more emotion and excitement. I love your book. :]

From,
Zoe

Hi, Danette! It's been a long time since I dropped by. Was so thrilled to see this. It has such a wonderful spirit to it ... in fact, it's kinda how I picture you!

And ... I take it from the last comment here that it is out?!? I am so behind the times these days ... I'm heading straight over to Amazon!
