    a great cover and after hearing Sandra read from the book I am looking forward to reading the book..

    • Sandra / Mar 27 2014 9:44 pm

      That’s the spirit, Pandabree!!!

    accents were almost not present – ’tis hard to roll in the scottish brogue when Fiona was talking. On the good side I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the reading by Sandra of the first chapter. I’ve already purchased an e-book version of the book, but would terribly LOVE to have an autographed paperback copy!!!

    • sandra / Mar 27 2014 9:43 pm

      I am AWFUL at accents!!! AWFUL, I tell you! I’m much better at typing them. πŸ˜‰

    The amazing cover had me intrigued as to the story. Listening to Sandra read the prologue, even after she said , she wouldn’t say prologue ; brought the characters to life. A little insight to each, even though the Scottish accent needs a little work. I am so glad I listened to the reading, I am looking forward to reading the rest of the book. Thanks to Sandra for the reading .

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 8:45 am

      Thanks for listening, Melissa. Yeah, the accent … sigh….

  5. Dani Dixon / Mar 27 2014 9:59 pm

    Love it!

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 8:45 am

      Thanks for listening, sister!!

  6. Dk Linda / Mar 27 2014 10:25 pm

    Sandra, you put the PRO in prologue! Thanks for the laughs, visuals and awesome reading!

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 8:46 am

      Even though I wasn’t going to read the word “prologue” … πŸ™‚

  7. Leslie / Mar 27 2014 10:25 pm

    Enjoyed the reading Sandra as well as the humorous conversation prior to the reading and afterwards. Have Nudge on my reader and have already started reading the book. The cover design is great. I do believe it looks somewhat similar to one of figures found in the Sistine Chapel. Keep up the good work Sandra!

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 8:48 am

      Every stinking time I’m around Andy and The Rev they make me laugh like a lunatic. Or maybe I really am a lunatic, Leslie, and they just bring it out in me …

  8. Marie Foose / Mar 28 2014 1:41 am

    I really enjoyed the reading from Sandra! I am looking forward to the book! Count me in!
    you guys always have so much fun, it is hilarious listening!

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 8:49 am

      Thanks, Marie! Thanks for listening. (And yes, they ARE hilarious).

  9. Cheryl / Mar 28 2014 2:39 am

    The time went by so fast. You all made me smile with all the fun you were having. Please count me in.

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 8:50 am

      It was the Diet A&W root beer combined with the power of Andy and The Rev. It’s a heady combination.

  10. Erzabet Bishop / Mar 28 2014 7:51 am

    Loved it! I can’t wait to read this book!

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 9:01 am

      Thanks, Erzabeth! It’s, as you know, a very different book from Letters Never Sent. Good luck in the drawing.

  11. nikkismalls28 / Mar 28 2014 9:19 am

    Lovely and perfect! Great job, everyone

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 10:56 am

      Thanks, NS! C&A make it feel like you’re just hanging out in a living room and suddenly decide to read aloud a little. As is often the case here at home. I just start reading aloud.

      • Rev / Mar 28 2014 11:02 am

        At home or at the gym. You know, wherever.

        • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 11:06 am

          πŸ™‚ (Crazy Stairmaster lady has finally LOST it!)

  12. Carrie Gooch / Mar 28 2014 9:50 am

    I NEED to read this book so bad! Awesome reading Sandra, πŸ™‚ this show definitely cheered me up. Hilarious as usual. πŸ˜€

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 10:55 am

      Thanks. Those two make it fun!

    • Rev / Mar 28 2014 11:03 am

      It’s our mission to cheer you up, Gooch. Love ya, little sister.

      • Gooch / Mar 28 2014 11:46 am

        Aww thanks! I appreciate it. πŸ˜€ love ya too!

  13. Rev / Mar 28 2014 11:05 am

    Thanks for all the great comments, everyone! Andy and I love having Sandra join us to chat. Can hardly wait until the next time.

    Good luck to all of you on winning the book!

  14. Cari / Mar 28 2014 11:49 am

    Oh Sah-da!! So that’s what you sound like? Great reading, i think you should be a newscaster as a second job. πŸ™‚ Really…what a cliffhanger. I must read the rest!

    • Sandra / Mar 28 2014 11:55 am

      That’s what I sound like, Cari. Sigh.

      • Cari / Mar 30 2014 10:16 am

        I meant that in a good way!

  15. A.B. / Mar 28 2014 12:03 pm

    Cool. Thank you all. I am not in the draw for obvious reason .. Spence already organized “Nudge” for me. I already read the prolog (in case I wouldn’t understand). Okay, I did, all words I know anyway .. Thank all of you again.

    • Sandra / Apr 1 2014 7:38 am

      Hey Andrea. If you want to play, I can offer up my next one, All That We Lack.

      • A.B. / Apr 1 2014 10:20 am

        ATWL sound great to me. Yes, I play. And: Thank you! for offering, Sandra. (One can never have too many books.)

  16. skeeter451 / Mar 28 2014 2:19 pm

    Very nice reading. I look forward to reading more.

    • Sandra / Apr 1 2014 7:39 am

      Thanks, Skeeter. I’ve vowed never to have anyone with foreign accents in my stories ever again.

  17. cw / Mar 28 2014 4:22 pm

    Fun show. I’m intrigued and this definitely goes on my must have list. Please put my name in the drawing.


    • Sandra / Apr 1 2014 7:40 am

      Thanks for listening, CW.

  18. Cindy G. / Mar 29 2014 7:06 pm

    Not having a religious background I wasn’t sure your book would interest me. So I was glad the Rev brought this up in the discussion. The reading was interesting though, so I might have to get ‘Nudge’ after all. I also went online & read the description for ‘Letters Never Sent’ – it sounds like a book I would like.

    • Sandra / Apr 1 2014 7:43 am

      Hi Cindy. There is no need to have a religious background. I didn’t come from one either. I’m glad The Rev mentioned that, too. It’s more about the idea of how alike we all are. Please let me know what you think after you’ve read it. Thanks for your kind words about Letters Never Sent. They’re very different books.

  19. Lori Janos / Mar 30 2014 9:05 pm

    Finally found the time to listen to the interview and reading. I have already read the book, but the background information was excellent. You ladies also had me in stitches. Andy, I also have a Hawaiian shirt that I’m (Scottish accent here) “fairly bustin out of.” So, let us all bust together. Oh Sandra, me girlie, ya’ve gawt to practice th accents. I was so hoping for the good Polish accent from the guy in the plaid shirt….lol. Great read! Sandra, I didn’t notice any Kansas accent any different from the way we talk here in Wisconsin, but my sister said you sound like Ellen. Again, great interview!

    • Rev / Mar 30 2014 9:07 pm

      Us Wisconsinites have no accents. Except for those who sound like their from Minnesota…

    • Sandra / Apr 1 2014 7:45 am

      I am going to go buy a Hawaiian shirt today! And thanks, Lori, though I have to say, I am never going to write characters with foreign accents again. πŸ™‚

  20. Lisa T. / Apr 4 2014 7:13 pm

    Great episode and reading! I definitely have to try Nudge. πŸ™‚
