SOMETHING MISSING was reviewed by the Free Lance Star in Fredericksburg, VA today, and in very glowing terms. I’m so pleased to find out that so many people have enjoyed the book so far. More than 75% of the readers in Amazon’s Vine program have given the book four or five stars, and Booklist, Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly all came out with very positive reviews.
This whole process has truly been a dream come true, and we still have 24-hours before SOMETHING MISSING hits the stores.
Actually, my friend, Jeff Martin (ironic, huh?), may have been the first person to purchase a copy of the book in an actual bookstore. He entered a Border’s Books in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this afternoon and saw an employee setting up a display of SOMETHING MISSING for tomorrow. He asked if he could buy the book today, and after some prodding, the employee relented and sold him a copy.
It’s been quite a week. My publicist has been scheduling bookstore signings (I’ll be posting the dates very, very soon), booksellers have been contacting me daily about any number of things, and I have been interviewed by the Hartford Courant for a story that will appear later this week.
How exciting! And tomorrow should be even better!
