Crime Writers Rock!

 

This is the portable model

Over the last few months, I have been contacting various authors in an effort to get them to read an advanced copy of my novel DOVE SEASON for consideration in supplying me with an author blurb.  You know what I’m talking about, those hyperbolic quotes on the back of the book that tells you that the book is awesome and you should buy it.

I sent out emails far and wide, thinking that if I was lucky I would get maybe two or three people to get back to me, let alone agree to read it.  I was wrong, I got over 20 authors to agree to read it.  And the ones that could not due to their schedules, were gracious and full of support and advice.

I have come to the conclusion that crime writers (and a few non-crime writers) rock.

The following list represents a group of authors that displayed unbelievable generosity and support to me.  Not all of them could read the book and I am sure that not all of them will supply me with a blurb.  But all of them welcomed me to the crime writing family.  I’ve read books by all of them and if you’re looking for something to read, pick up a book by one of these writers.  You won’t be disappointed.

Please note: Just because these authors are on this list, does not mean that  they have endorsed my book (many are still in the process of reading it).  I only wish to express my sincere thanks for their generosity and support.
