Goodness Gracious!

While cruising my favourite blogs for pitching tips, I read this exchange in the comments trail of a recent Pubrants post. An anonymous poster criticised the Publishers Marketplace blurb for YA author Kelly Parra’s Graffiti Girl. Expressing an opinion is fine. But what I found memorable was Kelly’s gracious response. It would’ve been all too easy to shoot back with a scorching reply. Instead, she killed ’em with kindness. I think that says a lot about her and how to win fans and influence bloggers.

  1. haha! Thanks, Vanessa! I really don’t expect everyone to connect my story, so it deflates the sting a bit if someone doesn’t. 🙂 :)Congrats on your YA ms!!
