THANK YOU for the support so many of you have shown OUR DAILY BREAD by voting for it in the first round of Harper Collins’ March Madness.
Because of you, I’ve made it to the second round. I’m delighted and incredibly grateful — especially since I beat out Colm McCann’s terrific book, LET THE GREAT WORLD SPIN.
And now, I am up again another formidable book. Gulp. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Now, look, I love that book, and wouldn’t for the world besmirch it; I’ve read it more than once and consider it a classic. But still, come on, I can’t abandon my own wee book. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD will keep selling and keep finding new readers whether it wins this match-up or not, but for OUR DAILY BREAD — the newcomer, the little guy — the only way it will make it is with your help.
I hope you’ll consider continuing your support — voting for OUR DAILY BREAD (often, apparently you can vote multiple times a day) — and help me prove to my publisher, who took such a big risk publishing The Book No One Wanted, that they did the right thing.
It’s only through your votes that OUR DAILY BREAD stands a chance. Go Team! http://hccmarchmadness.ca/vote/vote-2013/
I’m deeply appreciative,
