It’s always a bit nerve wracking when you ask someone you respect to review a book. It’s always a bit of a gamble when you ask someone who is a bit of a celebrity in the expat writing world to take a look at an expat anthology and then give her honest opinion. But that’s what happened recently when Olga of The European Mama asked Jo Parfitt to take a peek at the Dutched Up! book.
And it’s a bit like waiting for the man from Del Monte……
Luckily Jo Parfitt, she say yes too!
Jo has more than thirty books to her name and is one of the Summertime Publishing team members. She provided me with the springboard I needed to follow my passion to become a writer when I attended one of her workshops in a beautiful farmhouse in Voorschoten many years ago – the rest, as they say, is history. And as it was with Jo that my writing career started, I felt particularly honoured to also get a mention in the review.
“I’m a grumpy and cynical old goat, jaded too, from reviewing too many mediocre books, but this one, I promise you, is a goodie.”
