It may seem funny, maybe even egotistical, but I thought that I would give a few excerpts from a review that I received from Kirkus. The main reasons that I am doing this are 1.)it’s my best review and 2.)Kirkus is considered THE most prestigious of all. Now, I will admit that some of the compliments are left-handed, and I tend to agree with some of their points, so… “Fritchie’s storyline is suspenseful, interesting and well-researched”. Now after this, the reviewer says that I tend to tip my hand a bit, which I admit may be a bit true, but, come on! It’s my first attempt at a novel and it was a bit rushed. The next line that I would like to present is, “The narrative sometimes belabors a plot point or glosses big reveals, leaving the reader searching for a bit more explanation.” Now, if I explained every little point and left nothing to the reader’s imagination,the book would probably be twice as long, don’t you think? Finally, I would like to present their final line: “An exciting but awkwardly paced detective novel.” As I said, not every author might consider these compliments as major kudos, but when you consider that I went from looking on the internet for a literary agent to having an independent publisher within one day, then I hope that you see this as at least a hopeful sign in your literary endeavors. Besides, why would I brag about crappy reviews; I may be a bit odd, but I’m not an idiot! So, with this all said, I hope that you will give my novel, The Corporate Whore of Babylon, an open-minded chance and good luck to those who wish to pursue writing as an occupation!
