OUR AUTHORS SPEAK: What others are saying about Conversations Book Club

"Thank you for the interview – it was terrific, and we appreciate being a part of your program. And thanks for the attention you put on books, the arts, and the creative process – you are doing wonderful things!" ---Joel Fotinos, author of THE PRAYER CHEST and the Vice President at Penguin Group and the founder/publisher of the Putnam Praise imprint. ********************************************************************

"Words are not adequate enough to extend a debt of gratitude to you for all you have done for me. A pen would run out of ink before I could write or say thank you over and over again. You have brought the book back to life or I could even say you have given it life. I have never been this motiviated to ger rhis moving until now. Thanks for working with me."---Joseph Henderson, author of I DON'T WANT TO DIE ALL ALONE

I just wanted to touch bases with you and offer a heartfelt thank you. It was great to meet the new authors and become reacquainted with familiar faces. You provide a wonderful avenue by which people can be motivated to read. As an educator, I applaud your work. As a writer, I offer much love and appreciation. I love the invitation to join the addiction -- get hooked on books. Keep up the good work.


"Hello CBC! I couldn't wait to write you in order to say, "thank you." Each of you made my trip to Mississippi enjoyable. I have traveled many places promoting my novels and meeting with book clubs, but spending four days with you has been by far the best. My mother and I felt like we have known you forever. We were treated extremely kind, loving and considerate. It just doesn't get any better than that. I look forward to seeing you in a week or so. Remember that you never, ever know how you touch someone's life. Keep doing what you're doing. Keep moving forward. Keep being committed and keep on believing in whatever your God given talents may be. I am praying for each of you and for each book club. You have a great leader in Cyrus, even though he doesn't want his horn tooted, I still have to say 'beep, beep.' When I tell you that I love you and will cherish your kindness toward me and my mother forever in my heart, then I truly do mean that. Blessings to you and your family, and continued success with the book clubs!"
--- Bestselling author Shelia E. Lipsey, author of INTO EACH LIFE and SINSATIABLE after her first trip to Mississippi.
"Cyrus, the huge success of both of my visits to Mississippi were because of you. Your professionalism, your kind spirit and your patience made everything run smoothly. You have the gift of making others feel special and for that I am thankful. I left Mississippi with new found friendships, an ever greater love for the arts and of course one of the most fun-filled book events I have ever experienced. For those in Mississippi who are not members of this fine book club, now is the to climb on board and experience the thrill! Again, thank you Cyrus, thank you Conversations, thank you Mississippi!"

--- from Bestselling author Shelia E. Lipsey, author of INTO EACH LIFE & SINSATIABLE after her second trip to Mississippi.

"First of all let me start out by saying how grateful I am for all that you and Conversations Book Club has done for me as a writer. You guys are the best!!!! And when I hear stories like Kim and Dana's daughter I am inspired to do my best as a writer. And BTW...I've heard you talk so much about C-Murder's book that I'm going to have to purchase a copy:) Thanks for the support!"

--- Bestselling author C. J. Domino, author of SIDELINE HO

"Cyrus, I don't know how many ways I can say, "Thank you!" But, consider yourself thanked in every way that is possible. In addition to this interview which you presented so well the live interview I had with you,and your bookclub tonight was nothing short of amazing. The depths, and insights of tonight's conversation were just much more than I could have hoped or asked for. I ask a special blessing for you."
--- Bestselling author Evie Rhodes, author of OUT A ORDER & THE FORGOTTEN SPIRIT

"You did a first-class affair. I have and will continue to sing your praises to all of my literary colleagues. Your book club is a model for others to emulate."
--- Bestselling author Reshonda Tate Billingsley, author of MY BROTHER'S KEEPER & EVERYBODY SAY AMEN.
