Spotlight and Giveaway: Don't Forget to Write

Introduction by Melissa Amster

I am currently reading and highly enjoying the delightful book we're featuring today, Don't Forget to Write by Sara Goodman Confino. I plan to review it soon but I had a busy weekend and even with squeezing it in during any free chance I had, I am still not finished. Having said that, I still want to share about this novel with you and thanks to Get Red PR, we have one copy of Don't Forget to Write for a lucky reader!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Sara at an event she did with Jean Meltzer last week. She is as wonderful in person as she appears online. (And so is Jean, in case you are wondering.) She is so personable, friendly, and funny and it was an absolute joy to meet her! If you get a chance to meet Sara, I highly recommend doing so. And if you haven't read her first two novels yet, definitely check those out, as well!

When Marilyn Kleinman is caught making out with the rabbi’s son in front of the whole congregation, her parents ship her off to her great-aunt Ada for the summer. If anyone can save their daughter’s reputation, it’s Philadelphia’s strict premier matchmaker. Either that or Marilyn can kiss college goodbye.

To Marilyn’s surprise, Ada’s not the humorless septuagenarian her mother described. Not with that platinum-blonde hair, Herm├Ęs scarf, and Cadillac convertible. She’s sharp, straight-talking, takes her job very seriously, and abides by her own rules…mostly. As the summer unfolds, Ada and Marilyn head for the Jersey shore, where Marilyn helps Ada scope out eligible matches—for anyone but Marilyn, that is.

Because if there’s one thing Marilyn’s learned from Ada, it’s that she doesn’t have to settle. With the school year quickly approaching and her father threatening to disinherit her, Marilyn must make her choice for her future: return to the comfortable life she knows or embrace a risky, unknown path on her own.

“The best type of love story…Don’t Forget to Write is a wise, warmhearted, and witty tale about women determined to write their own stories.” 
— Jean Meltzer, international bestselling author of The Matzah Ball

“Sara Goodman Confino writes the kinds of books I love: hilarious, thought-provoking, and filled with shenanigans from characters I adore. I loved every minute I was reading this book.” 
— Maddie Dawson, bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners and Snap Out of It

“Sara Goodman Confino has quickly become a master of multigenerational women’s fiction. Hilarious and heartwarming, this one’s an absolute delight!” 
— Rochelle B. Weinstein, bestselling author of When We Let Go

Sara Goodman Confino teaches high school English and journalism in  Montgomery County, Maryland, where she lives with her husband, two  sons, and miniature schnauzer, Sandy. When she’s not writing or working  out, she can be found on the beach or at a Bruce Springsteen show, sometimes even dancing onstage.

I write handwritten letters and cards every week. I learned the art of correspondence in the 1950's from my mother and wrote letters to friends and relatives. I continue with that tradition because it is meaningful and gives me great pleasure.

I write occasionally to two of my friends. One lives in Canada, and one lives a few miles away, but we don't get to see each other often. I don't mind writing letters and I do like receiving them.

I haven't written a handwritten letter in a long time. When I send cards, I always write a note inside the card.

Our school has a pen pal program that I have taken part in for many years. We sign up that we would like to take part in this program and are assigned a student to correspond with during the school years. It helps the students learn how to write a letter!
