Reblogging is flattery



I wanted to share this most lovely blogpost Chuck Jackson wrote after I reviewed his book last weekWhat Did I Do? Chuck’s words and sentiment touched me and I’m just as humble for his writing this as he was for my review for his book.



The Greatest Compliment is Peer Recognition


The best compliment any professional or artist can receive is praise from another within your discipline. I am a novice writer and do not recognize myself as a professional writer/author. When someone who is a recognized professional author compliments my work, I know I have taken that step towards acceptance. Today well-known author and blogger D.G. Kaye (aka, Debby Gies) has graciously promoted and reviewed my writing and my book What Did I Do?

For the last three years, I have followed Debby’s blogs, Live, Laugh, Love — And Don’t Forget To Breath! I have also read three of her books. In my opinion, we have a commonality in our writing. We write memoirs or stories based on our life struggles. We share our conflicts and triumphs so others may learn from our experiences. We open our hearts and share our weaknesses. We do this not for recognition or fame, but to help others.

I thank Debby for the review and the honor of being selected for her Sunday Book Review.
