My Advance Review Copies are in for The 13th Continuum!
Don’t they look stunning?
So I’m surfacing here for a moment to share reports from Blurbland. For those who don’t know about blurbs, authors—especially debut authors—are supposed to ask other more established authors to read their book and provide a quote that’s usually printed on the cover, backcover, or inside the book. At least, that’s my understanding.
It’s all new to me, too!
I’ve been contacting my favorite authors far and wide, some that I know personally, and many that I don’t, hoping for a little magic, a little grace, a little leg up. Though it should come as no surprise, the majority either don’t do blurbs anymore or are too busy.
A few incredible folks are going to try to help out! I can’t name names yet, and let’s just say my fingers and toes are crossed. Even the idea that they’re reading the book potentially is crazy awesome. It makes my heart swell with gratitude to know that there are other amazing writers out there willing to give a younger author a little help.
The coolest thing about all of this is that the book is finally starting to seem real. I’m going to do everything I can do to launch it into the stratosphere.
