|02:58 am - Double Play!|
It's the little things that get me going. :>
First, a month or two back, I discovered that my reviews had been quoted on the cover of LOST TRUTH, by Dawn Cook. One quote from a review I did of HIDDEN TRUTH for Green Man Review, one quote from a review of FORGOTTEN TRUTH, done for SF Site. Two quotes, from two reviews, of two books, for two sites. Double play!
Tonight, while looking at the cover for the next Jim Butcher book, DEAD BEAT, I realized that again, I'd been quoted. On the back cover of the first hardback in the bestselling series. One quote from a review of DEATH MASKS, done for Green Man Review. And one quote from a review of BLOOD RITES, done for SF Site.
That's right, another double play.
Mary seems properly amused by the impromptu dance I created to express myself. Gosh, I love getting quoted. The paperback release of NEW MAGICS, edited by Patrick Neilson Hayden, quoted me recently as well.
(apologies to any misspelled names. It's late here.)
I'm starting to feel the groove again. I lost it over the holidays because I was so busy working retail. I think I'm really getting into the writing and reviewing groove. But for now... sleep.
Current Mood: pleased
Hee hee hee... Jonesy, you and I may be in our thirties now, my man, but that was just like reading your post-Greenbriar-chapter strut. Thanks for getting me hooked up in your LJ. =)
And good on you for doing these reviews!
Not a problem. It's good to have you around. :>
Tha cats were suitably disturbed by the dance.
I think you're our most quoted reviewer. I do hope to beat you someday, but I'm thinking it's unlikely... *g*
A guy has to have some goals in life. :> I sent you email a while back, apologizing for falling off the face of the Earth again. I got SO behind on everything over the holidays, and am only now catching up on review stuff.
But I tell ya, there's nothing like seeing blurbs to make me want to keep on reviewing and reviewing. :> I'll try and get something GMR's way sometime real soon if you like. :>
Please do. *bats eyelashes*
I've actually got an installment of my young adult review column that missed seeing print for assorted stupid reasons. I may break it up into its components and flesh out the reviews in it that I liked and send them to good homes, depending on what happens soon. :> I dunno yet. We'll see, but I hate reviews without good homes. :>
