New Author Page Needs Some Blog Love!

Sojourner McConnell has increased her writing over the last months and will be releasing at least 1 new book by May 2017. With that in mind, an author page just for her work alone has been created. Now, she needs some love. She needs some lovely Google Plus subscribers and Blogger friends to follow her page. She just needs some help. Lonely Sojourner misses all her Friends on WordPress.

I have the best followers and friends in the world and would never impose, but I sure could use some support on the new page.  I will continue to do reviews and there will, of course, be some overlap on our content, but I felt this was a good fit for Sojo.  I hope you feel welcome at both sites and find enough to keep you entertained.  After resting up from the marathon posting on MTW I am finally back in the groove and am anticipating

After resting up from the marathon posting on MTW I am finally back in the groove and am anticipating Camp NaNoWriMo and completing another book. I am so excited about this new story. It is trying to get me to write it before next week and I am taking copious notes from what the characters are sharing. I can tell you this much though when someone close to me read the first few pages, they said that it had a Sean Connery vibe.

One ping only, please.

You know I love The Hunt for Red October, so I was beyond thrilled with the comparison. I am having to make myself not talk about it on here. It is just too much fun to chat about, and write about.

There is another quite different anthology coming out soon in which I hope to be included. I will know more about that later and will share as soon as I know.

On a totally different note, my cat Mufasa has a man cold. It is pitiful to see him unable to hunt and glare at us as we walk past him.

Thanks for always being so special to me. I have from the first day I started reviewing and sharing been so supported. I hope you feel I am supportive of you as well.  Thanks for your time!

Book Blurb for Revised Edition of The Path of the Child by Sojourner McConnell

Seventeen-year-old Melanie Easton lives in a loveless home with her negligent, self-absorbed, and potentially dangerous mother. Consequently, she knows loneliness. Living in self-imposed anonymity, Melanie struggles to survive without becoming bitter and hate filled. Unexpectedly offered a ride with a classmate, Robert Reynolds, Melanie finds there is more to people than she ever imagined.

After being befriended by Robert Reynolds, windows of opportunity open for Melanie. Accordingly, the road to discovery divulges there may be reasons for her strange home life. The reasons she never imagined until she begins unraveling the documents hidden away.

Out of the discovery of the secrets, lies, and deceptions, come the possibility for exciting changes. Perhaps along with the answers, comes the opportunity for genuine happiness.

A suspenseful story that will engage your heart and mind with hopefulness and admiration for Melanie’s courage and willingness for self-discovery and personal growth.


Refrain from getting so excited by this new blurb that you attempt to run out and purchase the book today. There is almost a week before the reissue occurs.  If you purchase the book today, unfortunately, it will contain those annoying errors that I have been working diligently  to correct. In addition, the revised book accommodated my rewriting tendency. Consequentially, the new version has almost seven thousand new words spaced out over four new chapters. Nonetheless, I swear it was harder writing a blurb that  didn’t curl my lip, than writing the first chapter of the book.

That being said, I would love your input on this blurb. Did the blurb attract your attention? Did it provoke interest in the topic?  Did the blurb provide encouragement to  purchase and read the book?   Does it turn you off the book?

Resist buying today, however, don’t resist or hesitate  to comment. We all have opinions, I actually embrace hearing yours.  Please let me know what you think.

Coming up with a book blurb that works is more difficult than it appears. This is the official blurb as of today.  Thinking about today reminds me of what Scarlett O’Hara is known to say:

 “After all, tomorrow is another day!”  Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind.

As I complete the final details, I wanted to share the (hopefully improved) book blurb. I decided to show it today providing  time to  receive feedback.

Humble request:

As always, please be honest and forthcoming. A candid and honest opinion would be so appreciated.

On a side note:

If you are interested in providing a review for the reprint, it would thrill me to provide a copy in exchange for that honest review on Amazon, Goodreads, especially on your own blog.

Obviously, I am going with subtlety at this point.
