A Scattered Life

I've been doing a lot of reading over the past month. I think summer allowed me to take a breath and find some time for one of the things I love to do. I am going to be doing some reviews of some of the books I have read this summer.

The first one I want to showcase is A Scattered Life by Karen McQuestion. I first met Karen about 14 years ago. Our husbands work together. From time to time, Andy would come home with a copy of an article Karen had published. When I began blogging, I started following Karen's blog. Karen has this great wit about her. I have also been able to follow her road to publishing there.

Last year, she self-published on Kindle. At some point in the process, A Scattered Life was picked up for a movie option. Then, this year, it was published as a paperback (through Amazon Encore) on August 10. In fact, now all of her books are about to be published as paperbacks. Check out her blog for her path to being published (and she has giveaways from time to time too)! Now onto the book:

I have to say that I LOVED this book! Karen has a great writing style, and is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors! A Scattered Life is a great story about unlikely friendship. It is a beautiful story, one with a few twists and turns that will leave you laughing one minute and crying the next. I was not able to put this book down! I hope they do make a movie of this book-I would love to see it come to life!

You can check out the trailer for the book here. Well done, Karen!

What a nice surprise to visit your blog and see you talking up my book. I'm so pleased (and relieved) that you really enjoyed it. Just so you know, I give you partial credit for my recent run of good publishing fortune, since you were the one who introduced me to the whole Kindle idea. Thank you!
