Day 7 – If only I could meet…

Felix Zemdegs and my book!

Feliks Zemdegs and my book!

Day 7 prompt is:

If you could ask anyone in the world to write a blurb for your book, who would it be? Why that person/people? How did/will you go about reaching them? Yes – really!

This question was asked of us last year, and I have my answer here.

You want to know something? It happened! Feliks Zemdegs endorsed my book 3… 2… 1… Done! and is encouraging with the other cubing stories I’m working on.

How did this happen?

The weekend of the post last year, my son attended his first every speedcubing competition. A few weeks later, in November, he attended Melbourne Cube Days, and Feliks was there. I got my son to introduce us and I told him about the stories I was working on. He generously offered any assistance.

Earlier this year, I sent him a draft which he enjoyed, and he sent me a quote for the back of the book! He has also tweeted about the book to his followers. We are in the process of planning a book launch and are hoping he’s available to help launch the book.

If it hadn’t been for this prompt last year, I may never have thought to ask Feliks to support my book!

My advice for anyone looking to get someone to write a blurb or support their book, just find a way to contact them, and just ask. You never know, they might just say yes!

Oh, and thank you to Laura and the Author Blog Challenge or this may not have happened.

For my next book, I honestly have no idea… but I will think about it, someone may just come to mind.
