What a surprise when I found out about this today (spoiler alert, he liked it):
Over on the right side of his blog I noticed he also recommends Harvey Click’s book “The Bad Box.” In the back of all my books, I mention the Awesome Indies. Assuming that’s how Mr. Thomas discovered the book, I’m glad to see my attempt at cross-marketing being successful. Way to go Harvey.
Right on the heels of Kattie Hamstead Teller’s wonderful review of Fool’s Ride comes another nice blog review of my latest book “Thief’s Odyssey.”
Here’s a lovely quote I snagged:
“John’s work here is reminiscent of Donald Westlake, one of the masters of the genre. And that’s one of the highest compliments I can give because Westlake’s work is all about immersing you into the world of real criminals doing real crimes.”
I totally have to pick up something from this “Donald Westlake” fellow — sounds right up my alley.
One thing about E.J. Robinson: I read his book and told him how much I loved it. He turned around and read all of mine (hehe). About two months ago, long before he’d written his blog review, I’d asked him to join the ranks of the Awesome Indies. He plans to, but wants to do a final sweep through his book to make it absolutely perfect for an upcoming promo he’s doing. I admire his professionalism. In respect of his wishes, I’m holding off the “official” announcement until later. But stay tuned!
Fool’s Ride got a wonderful blog review by author Katie Hamstead Teller:
From one author observing another, I couldn’t help admire the beautiful cover of her debut novel Hope of the Pharaoh.
A short interview, followed by a review of “The Bad Box.” Way to go Harvey!
Ok, so Patrick from the TBR Podcast just read Fool’s Ride and seemed to really like it — spoiler, I know, sorry 🙂 Can’t keep a secret. Another secret I can’t keep is that he’s now reading Dell Zero by Carol Ervin! I think he’s going to love it, because it’s actually quite a page turner (if you have a Kindle, simply spin it around several times for the same effect).
As with all things exciting in my life, I um…arrive at around the 6 minute mark… Carol er…uh…arrives too, a little after me… Just sayin’.
Again, if you like the podcast, maybe pop them a review. The more reviews they get, the better traction they make in the iTunes store. That way everyone…er…um…gets theirs.
