[F]oto (er... video, that is) Friday

I'm sorry this is so dark! And please forgive me where I talked in circles; it was unscripted.

Kim Michele Richardson is a dear heart with a special spirit, all of which becomes clear as you read The Unbreakable Child.

To find out more about Kimmi or the book, visit her author's website or her blog.

Janna, that was so good! Glad it wasn't scripted and stilted. :)

What, you did all that talk unscripted? Wow! I am very impressed. You'll do so great at publicizing your own book, when time comes (very soon!)

You're really good in front of a camera!

First take?

Maybe you should think of a career in television...

Sounds like a great book. One that would really tug at my emotions. I'm thankful for people who have the courage to tell their stories and be a help and inspiration to others. Thanks for the recommendation.

Good job, Janna! I've read Kimmi's book and it's a compelling, though heartbreaking, yet eventually triumphant read!

Melanie Avila said...

Wow! What a great review! I need you to do reviews for all my stuff, including websites. :)

The book sounds wonderful -- I'd really like to read it.

And... my WV is "blesses" (with all the letters).

How fun to watch your video! I feel like I got to "know" you a little better even though you were reviewing a book! And the book sounds very touching and painful. Thanks for sharing!

Janna Qualman said...

Thanks, Angie!

Lori - I sure hope so! And thanks, that was wonderful of you to say. :)

FringeGirl - Yeah, first take. ;) TV? Naw...

Linda - "Compelling" is a perfect word! I wish I'd thought of that while I was taping. LOL

Melanie - Maybe we can trade services? ;) And I LOVE that WV. Can't tell you how much.

Jenni - Thank you! I never thought I would be, but goes better than I ever expect it to.

Jody - That's what I love most about video posts; that extra something you get about a personality.

Joanne said...

Terri Tiffany said...

Grat job! I've seen that book around the blogs and it looks great! Glad you promoted it for her!

WendyCinNYC said...

You have such a cute little voice! Nice job!

The books sounds great. I'll pick it up.

Jessica said...

You did a great job with that! I have to come back and listen to the rest later 'cause it's lunch time. :-)
I've heard of that book too.

OH my gosh! I looked at your followers and it's def. exploded. LOL! I'm curious as to how many stop by too. Wow. Go you! :-)

Melanie Avila said...

OMG, I forgot to comment on the corn nuts. That reminds me of the place I waited tables in college. We had those peanuts where people throw the shells on the floor, so we'd snack on them between tables. Every now and then a peanut skin would adhere to the back of my throat just as I approached a table. Very good first impression. :P

I'm glad you made it through okay.

Turkey Lurkey said...

Wonderful review. Thanks for sharing Kimmi's book.

Janna Qualman said...

T. Anne - Thanks! Mmm... Corn nuts...

Joanne - I'd like to know what you think when you've read it!

Terri - I hope it gets lots more promotion!

Wendy - Aw, thanks. :)

Jessica - What's for lunch? Can I come? LOL

Melanie - ROFL! I once approached a table with the dessert tray and a cold. Didn't have a kleenex *snort* so I had *snort* to sniff heavily *snort* through my rundown of the *snort* goods. Needless to day, they didn't want any dessert. ;)

Turk - Thanks and your welcome! :D

Lady Glamis said...

Thank you for this information. This is wonderful! I hope to pick up that book sometime.

Video is great. Lighting needs work, but you did an awesome job! And congrats on your followers. :)

Kathy said...

It sounds like an interesting book. I think I'll have to buy it.

Thank you for making me aware of Kimmi's book!

Kathy said...

Update--

I tried to find Kimmi's book in the bookstore but they didn't have it. So I'll order it from amazon.

By the way, Janna, you did a great job reviewing Kimmi's book.

Janna Qualman said...

Lady - I'm glad to help spread the word about this book!

Kimmi - You're so welcome!

Kathy - Bummer the store didn't have it! Good idea to order. ;) And thank you!

I'm new to your site, so it was particularly lovely to get to see you up close and personal today.

I so agree with everything you said about Kim's story. Not enough good can be said about her book.
