People Are Buzzing About Brand-New Emily

If you told two friend about BNE, and they told two friends, and they told two friends...see how that would be totally awesome and we'd love you forever?

Ginger already has a slew of reviews and blurbs collected from various folks on her new site at, which is all part of the whole “PR and release” process.

But since the book’s come out, it’s been really super cool for her to see the responses from folks who’ve bought and read Brand-New Emily. Here are just a few examples of what’s coming in over her author page on Facebook

“I just finished the book. Absolutely fantastic! I love this so much. Should be required reading for young women.”

“Brand New Emily = amazing!!!! So… I don’t read novels often but I read it in 2 days!”

“I also read it in two days. It’s hard to put down!”

“Just finished the book and I LOVED it!! Gosh, it was an awesome read!!!”

Even thought the listed target audience for BNE is tweenage girls, women of all ages are reading and loving BNE!

Heck, as a father of two girls quickly approaching their tweenage/teenage years, reading BNE cleared up a BUNCH of stuff about the way females think and act that had been a complete mystery to me since I was in junior high. Better late than never, I guess.

So please don’t be shy about telling people to read Brand-New Emily. Whether that’s by writing a review at your favorite online bookseller, or recommending it to your local library or school, or just telling a couple of friends over coffee…word-of-mouth ROCKS!

And if anyone stopping by the Funcave knows a way to get a copy of BNE in the hands of Oprah Winfrey’s people, don’t be shy. Ginger would love to hear from you.

  2. Sounds like a good book!

    Here’s ‘how to get booked on Oprah’:

    Of course, I’m sure lots of good books don’t make it even if they do everything right, so don’t be disappointed if this isn’t one of the lucky few.

    It looks like this book doesn’t have any reviews up on Amazon and BarnesAndNoble so far… try to get at least a few nice reviews on there quickly, particularly before applying to TV shows.
