Wow. What a year it’s been. Two incredible kids, a new book and more adventures to come.
And as this is my final newsletter of the year, I wanted to share some especially good news that’s unfolded recently. Finders Keepers has been getting some excellent reviews. In particular, I’d like to point out these three:
“Finders Keepers is a rollicking novel. … This book should be read and promoted.” –Science Fiction & Fantasy Association of New Zealand
“Hilarious. … Touching. … Thrilling. … If ‘On the Road’ had sex with ‘Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,’ it would be [Finders Keepers]!” –Amazon.com
“Unique and funny [with] … style and panache. … [Finders Keepers is] a strong debut from a very imaginative writer.” — Publishers Weekly
What makes the Publishers Weekly review so important is the publication’s role in the book industry. For those of you who don’t know, Publishers Weekly is read by agents, publishers, distributors, reviewers and … bookstore owners — i.e., people who buy books in bulk to carry in their stores.
And there’s more! Publishers Weekly liked Finders Keepers so much that they’ve asked to interview me about my book for a special Q&A next week!
So … getting a thumbs up from Publishers Weekly is getting the book industry Bible’s stamp of approval. And that’s worth something, with the potential to open a lot of doors.
* Speaking of Finders Keepers … with the year coming to a close, the 3 Finger Prints special holiday sale will only last another week, so for those of you who want to get this ‘rollocking’ adventure at the best price in town — and I know that you do — jump on the Finders Keepers sale while you still can!
* And for this very special shout out, I want to thank my wife Liz, who makes all the wonderful elements of my life possible. She’s kind and supportive, beautiful, has a great sense of humor and is a terrific mother to my bundles of joy Nate and Abby (and my best dog Simon, who’s still on the mend from his busted leg). And beyond all else … Liz is my girl. I can’t think of a greater gift.
Okay, folks. That’s all she wrote for this edition. I’ll be back in 2011 with all new updates about Finders Keepers, Crossline (yep, still working on that bad boy) and a few new tricks up my sleeve.
Happy New Year!
