Praise for Before Ever After from Melissa Senate!




I hope you guys brought your dancing shoes because....The Happy Dancing Banana Disco is OPEN!!! Woooohoooo!!! (My two left feet are going to kill me tomorrow, but it's soooo worth it :D)  



From the AWESOME Melissa Senate, bestselling author of See Jane DateThe Love Goddess’ Cooking School, and eight other fabulous novels:

“Exquisitely written and inventively told, Before Ever After is a beautiful, moving — and quite fun — exploration of what you think you know about your own life.”

I love the banana! Count me in on the dance floor!

I also love your countdown! I find it mesmerizing. Do you constantly watch it? I would. My first book is coming out 2012 and while I don't know the exact date yet, I want a count down too!

Congratulations,
Meryl
