"Reading it was one of those moments where I got writer envy and then had a publisher squee." --Jodi Cleghorn, Publisher of eMergent Publishing
So today I'm floating on clouds ... can you blame me???
What is the best compliment you've ever received?
Delightful - that's the sort of comment that will keep you smiling for a long time:-)ReplyDelete
Well, honey... who cares about me today...let's celebrate YOU! That's a fabulous comment! Let's all SQUEEE with you!ReplyDelete
That is a most excellent compliment! :)ReplyDelete
Hi Jessica .. excellent .. no wonder you're jumping around .. great news - enjoy the celebration .. cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Seeing a grown man cry after reading one of my poems. Learning that a woman cried after reading my first novel (twice in fact) was also good but there's nothing like seeing the effects a handful of words can have on someone when they're sitting ten feet away from you.ReplyDelete
That is too cool!! The best compliment I ever received came from a friend, who does not read, like at all. He surprised me by not only buying my book, but then he actually read it and told me that he loved it.ReplyDelete
My best compliament some years back was "Yvonne you've lost weight" I since put some back one but nonetheless it was music to my ears.ReplyDelete
Oh, all writers desire their readers to feel that way about their books. I'm so excited for you!ReplyDelete
Now that's a fine compliment! I think the first time someone told me they were reading my book a second time because they enjoyed it so much sent me on a high.ReplyDelete
It's about time you start hearing how fabulous you are. <3ReplyDelete
Oh, that's a great compliment, Jessica! Congrats on that!ReplyDelete
I'm a lame loser about keeping track of specifics. I know people have said nice things... I even know where to FIND some of them, but the specific wording... poof... lost to my miserable memory.
No, Jessica. That's totally awesome!ReplyDelete
That is amazeballs! What an awesome compliment!ReplyDelete
Let's see, the best compliment i can think of was when my teacher said my dialogue was so strong i should consider writing a play. That was a definite smile moment
Nope, Jess, can't blame you and so so happy for you.ReplyDelete
SWEET!!!! Congrats Jesscia! That's awesome.ReplyDelete
Hubs once told me my writing reminded him of Grisham. I'm not sure he meant it as a compliment, but I sure took it that way--LOL! :DReplyDelete
CONGRATS TO YOU!!! That is fantastic. ((hugs)) <3
Wow, what a compliment! Remember it always. It'll keep you going during those frustrating times!ReplyDelete
The best compliment I ever received was from my creative writing professor in college. After she read one of my stories, she told me I was a gem in her class. I've never forgotten it!
Nope. Can't blame you at all.ReplyDelete
Wonderful little blurb there! You deserve to squee!ReplyDelete
Congratulations. Never apologize for tooting your own horn. You're the best one to do it. M.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! That's a great compliment! :)ReplyDelete
If you can induce a squee, you've arrived.ReplyDelete
Best compliment I ever received was from someone who called my YA series "Encouragement personified."
You kiss better than my boyfriend.ReplyDelete
That's a compliment I got, not a comment. :P
I think the best compliment I ever got (and didn't even realize it at the time ::shame::) was when someone told me I had a "...writing style that was Tolkien-esque..."ReplyDelete
Up until the first movie, I never read Tolkien's work when I got that compliment. So imagine what I felt like when I saw the first movie and started devouring all of his books. XD
I'm so happeh for you!!! That is an awesome comment to get!
Obviously that publisher has good taste! :) Congrats to you on all of your hard work.ReplyDelete
Wow! That is indeed a fantastic compliment! I can imagine you squeeing all over the place. If one can do such a thing!ReplyDelete
That is an awesome compliment! Congrats.ReplyDelete
That's the best compliment in the world!ReplyDelete
Fantastic compliment! Congrats. xReplyDelete
Wow...a comment like that is what its all about!! :)ReplyDelete
awe, congrats! What a great feeling!ReplyDelete
Well I'm left speechless by the compliment you received. That is worthy of repeating here. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
Tossing It Out
Wow! That is an AWESOME compliment! Congrats. :-)ReplyDelete
