Thankful Thursday: Good Things Happening for Good People – Hilary’s Dangled Carat is Republished



The other day, when we paused to help Sister Gracie remember her dear Alex, Gracie mentioned in her post that Alex had been very busy at the Bridge.  You see, Alex’s Mom Hilary, from Feeling always wanted to write a book and be a successful author.   Not only did Alex play a paw in her success, Alex was able to help nudge that dream a little more!

Dangled Carat Republished

Now for the wonderful news!  The already tremendously successful Dangled Carat has been picked up by BookTrope and is being republished. Not only that, Dangled Carat has a brand new and stunning cover  Please stop by and visit Hilary at today and check out the big news and the cover reveal.

Hilary, and Marc of course, have been through a lot since Alex departed for the Bridge, including Hurricane Sandy.  We are so very thankful when good things happen to good people.  Join us today in cheering Hilary on with the republication of Dangled Carat.

Here’s the scoop on Dangled Carat in case you missed it…

For every girl who wondered if she should love him or dump him…..

For every girl who listened to her heart instead of her friends advice….

For every girl who l wondered if she was wasting her time dating that guy….

meet Hilary….

She had gotten used to dating the commitment-phobic Marc, thirteen years her senior. They had a great relationship–why rush into things? She saw no need to pressure him for marriage, believing that when the time was right, he would propose. But after they had been together for four years, their friends decided to take matters into their own hands, pushing Marc to propose and making Hilary realize how much she really did want to marry the man that she loved. Unfortunately, Marc still wasn’t ready–and their friends’ meddling in the form of a faux engagement party led to a disastrous New Year’s Eve that brought their relationship to an inevitable turning point.

For anyone who has ever dated a commitment-phobe, who has found their patience wearing thin with the one they love, or who has sat around wondering if he is ever going to pop the question while trying to remain the very picture of patience and grace, Hilary’s humorous and honest story will hit home.

“Dangled Carat sparkles with humor and shines with wisdom. It is a gem of a book.” – Christina Baker Kline – New York Times Best Selling Author of Orphan Train.
“Fans of Sex and the City – Grossman makes a reference to Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big – will enjoy the story, but its real-girl charm should draw an even wider crowd.” – Kirkus Reviews.

Ebook $2.99, Paperback $9.93

Hilary’s bio is: 

Hilary Grossman dated a guy so commitment-phobic that she was able to write a book about their relationship.  She has an unhealthy addiction to denim and shoes.  She loves to find humor in every day life.  And she likens life to a game of dodgeball – she tries to keep many balls in the air before they smack her in the face. When she isn’t writing or blogging she is the CFO of a beverage alcohol importer.  She lives on Long Island.

That sounds really interesting, I will put it on my wishlist, maybe I’m such a commitment-phobic guy too, could be a reason that I’m still single. Think I should read it :o)

Thank you so much for sharing! You are so right… this book wouldn’t have been possible if not for Alex. He was with me every step of writing the first draft… And I feel his presence every moment 🙂

I am so excited to be in a picture with you! But most of all I am just so thankful for your friendship and to have you as my family!
