Received a note today…

Linked Lives by Bonny Brookes

Linked Lives is a two-time international book award winner.

I received the following note from a woman who recently read my book, Linked Lives.

You owe me….one whole box of Kleenex tissue! Please Jesus, God almighty, for cripes sake, I can’t stop crying. You hit a nerve…I am you, and my best friend, since I was 11, is Cheryl (to whom this book is going). She stayed in the town she grew up in, and where I lived for 4 years…I spent my life living around the country. And that’s just the start…we are now 58 years old.

Bonny. thank you for touching my heart.

Thank you Linda, for taking the time to write to me! Your note has made all the months I spent writing, editing and going through the publishing process worth it. Thank you!

If you’ve read Linked Lives, I’d love to hear from you. If you haven’t, get your copy today!

Linked Lives wins another award

I’ve been so busy with moving, starting new job and dealing with the loss of a pet, I haven’t had a chance until now to share that my book, Linked Lives, has won another award! Reader’s Favorite received thousands of entries making this their largest contest ever resulting in fierce competition and the selection hard earned. Next month I’ll be traveling to Miami to accept it onstage during the Miami Book Fair International . This award is the 2014 Honorable Mention under the category of Relationships from Readers’ Favorite.

If you haven’t already read it, Linked Lives is a story of a 40-year friendship filled with life lessons learned by overcoming incredible adversity, poverty, family struggles, losses through illness and death as well as betrayals in love. This memoir appeals to baby boomer women, taking them back through time from the 1970s to present day. Readers finish the book reminded of their own close friendships and the knowledge of how important staying in contact with good friends is to a person’s happiness.

What a year it’s been! Linked Lives earned the 2014 International Beverly Hills Book Award earlier this year. I’m truly grateful and appreciate everyone who has helped me along this journey. What a ride!
