Early reviews of my upcoming novel!

It’s one thing to write a novel, sell it, revise it, embrace the cover – but it is something else entirely to have people read it!

I’m a middle-child and have always been quick to freak out at criticism, I have this thing where I want to please everyone and make the world a better place. Even at the newspaper when I had to review movies and readers didn’t agree with me, I felt bad. I had to write them back and apologize or explain. You can’t do that with a novel. It is your baby that you created from scratch!

That being said, I’m bracing myself for reviews. Some have trickled in early, and luckily, they are all wonderful! I am so thankful! I hope they continue in this spirit, I will be on Cloud 9, 10 and 11!

Here are some quotes so far…

“A fun read about stumbling into love, honoring friendship, and celebrating the power of craft. Full of good cheer!” (Kate Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club )

“Every word in this hilarious, fun read sparkles. Kathy Cano-Murillo is certainly an author to watch. I woke up in the land of happy reading!” (Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author )

Waking Up in the Land of Glitter is wildly addictive! Funny, sweet, and slyly wicked, it draws you in so deeply that you’re not even remotely mad you’ve spent the night on the couch, reading, and missed all of your shows on Bravo.” (Laurie Notaro, New York Times bestselling author )

“Kathy Cano-Murillo is an amazing storyteller–her narrative is as bejeweled as her crafty creations!” (Alberto Ferreras, author of B as in Beauty )

“Kathy’s novel dazzles! Through Ofie’s purity of heart, Chloe’s emotional transformation and Star’s awakening to the shine that was always there, Waking Up in the Land of Glitter weaves a story of friendship, trust and self-discovery. Whether you’re a painter, crocheter, sewer or have nary the crafty bone in your body you’ll leave reading this book with the feeling that creativity is key, but love conquers all! A must-read for crafty women of all generations!” (Vickie Howell, host of DIY Network’s Knitty Gritty and author of Pop Goes Crochet )

“Who knew that glitter really does make the world a better place? Kathy’s book is creative, inspirational and empowering, just like she is. I couldn’t put it down!” (Terri O, TV Personality, Spokesperson, Craft Expert www.terriocraftprojects.com )

Reading Waking Up in the Land of Glitter helped me to be a bit more proud of who I am. Yes, I can proudly say that I enjoy crafts and am proud of where my lineage comes from. It might be a tall order from a small book but Kathy Cano-Murillo definitely pulled it off with Waking Up in the Land of Glitter.”
