This is a new author that was recommended to me by readers and followers on Facebook. I reached our to Karen on Twitter to ask permission to review one of her books as our June spotlight author and she responded with a review copy of From a Distant Star her new YA Novel. To say I was overcome with excitement would be putting it mildly as I immediately jumped on messenger and notified fellow book review blogger Roxanne about the exciting news. What followed was some awesome back and forth tweets between McQuestion and myself and a few e-mails as well which led me to believe this would be one review that would have a more personal feel. In this day and age of online publishing and the younger generation picking up more books and watching less t.v. Authors have become more like rock stars and Hollywood celebrities. I for one do a happy dance every time an author tweets with me or responds to a facebook message. I will gladly be the one standing in line for three hours just to get my favorite authors signature.
Without further ado it is my great pleasure to bring to you in the first month of summer my review for From a Distant Star by Karen McQuestion.
