My 5-star reviews of books by Sally Cronin, blogger and writer extraordinaire


Diana Peach says it best: Thank you, Sally, for all your wonderful support of this blogging/writing/reading community.
Check out this beautiful post celebrating one of the WordPress communities’ icons- Sally Cronin.

Myths of the Mirror

Sally Cronin and her blog Smorgasbord Invitation is a household name around WordPress. She’s one of the most generous bloggers this side of Sunday, and how she manages to keep up her wide range of posts continues to amaze me. I think she has a workshop of elves in the attic.

If you’re not already a fan, check out her blog for book and author promotions, reviews, music, humor, food and health tips, short stories, and poetry. All that, and….

she’s an exquisite writer.

I couldn’t think of a better way to thank Sally for her kindness than to share my reviews of some of her books. You can’t go wrong with any of these.
