A strange thing happened the other day when I was goggling Disappearing in Plain Sight by Francis Guenette. You might be wondering why I was doing this. I read a tweet by a woman saying that she goggled her name and the title of her book and found, to her horror, that her book was being pirated on about five different sites. I decided to see if I shared her fate. Okay, I admit it – I was a
bit jealous and sort of hoped worried someone might think my book was worth pirating.
Anyway. I didn’t find Disappearing in Plain Sight being pirated anywhere, but I did find something else that was super exciting
On June 23, totally unbeknownst to me, I was Indie Book of the Day over on the Indie Book of the Day site. I’m sure they sent me an email that, somehow, I missed. This discovery felt a bit like finding buried treasure. What a pleasant surprise.
I’m not one to let a small thing like a four month delay get in the way of my bragging rights. Ergo this post, plus a few Tweets, and a Facebook author page announcement. Oh, and check out the cool badge that came with the recognition. A badge is pure joy to the heart of an indie writer.
Thank you Indie Book of the Day people – just sorry it took me so long to clue in. Have any of you ever had an experience like this – recognition of some type that you totally missed?
Just had to share this one – these two granddaughters are too cool.
Congratulations Francis, well-deserved x
Hey, thanks so much, Gemma. I was quite excited when I saw you were following. And thanks also for tweeting.
What do you mean?? I haven’t stopped following?
I could swear I got an email the other day that said – Gemma is now following your blog. I said to myself – that is strange. I thought Gemma had been following me for a while. So, you certainly haven’t stopped and thank goodness! The confusion of social media, right!
Congratulations! Maybe someday I’ll find my own buried treasure. (Your grandbabies are adorable–hats and sunglasses are the best accessories to show off chubby cheeks.)
I know – right? (on the grandkids!). I love the way you call this buried treasure because I really felt like that. Just goes to show that some days Google brings good news and some days not so good news.
