When The Whistle Blows

If you saw one of my comments the other day, you will read that I won an advance copy of Fran Cannon Slayton's book When The Whistle Blows.

I was so excited. I emailed her immediately to give her my address.

She answered promptly. She said she was on a book tour, but she would tell her husband to mail it to me.

I got it in the mailbox yesterday!

I emailed her back and let her know I had received it. She promptly got back with me and thanked me for letting her know I had received the book. She said her book tour was going great! I had asked her if there were many differences in this book and the final published version. She said there were some, but they were fairly subtle.

She is so nice and I don't think being published has went to her head at all. I wish her the best on her book tour and with her book When the Whistle Blows.

I am reading it now and so far I love it. I love the language she uses and her style of writing.

Go here and find out all about Fran and her book.


  1. Congratulations!! The book sounds interesting, I'll have to keep an eye out for it!

  2. Oh how fun! In a world of rejections and setbacks, it's so fun to win, isn't it? Congratulations!

  3. You'll have to let us know more about it after you finish reading it. We'd love to hear what you liked best.

  4. Janet,

    Getting advanced copies is such fun. I have several here and enjoyed reading each one.

    I hope when you've finished the book you'll do a review. Looking forward to it.



Thank you for your comments. I love comments!
