As those who follow my writing progress know, I sent Born in a Treacherous Time to be reviewed by the inimitable Kirkus Reviews. This group, a name in publishing since 1933, reviews about 10,000 books a year. You’ve probably seen their reviews on the back covers of popular novels and online sites. They are a friend to Indie authors, offering affordable 250-300 word reviews that include a general summary of the book as well as an unbiased opinion on the story’s strengths and weaknesses. They never guarantee a good review (you have the option of NOT publishing a review you don’t like)–and for me, that’s their power.
Happily, I received a good review. What I just found out is that Born In a Treacherous Time was chosen as the top 10% of Kirkus Reviews and has been published in their June 2018 print and digital magazine, to be shared with librarians, publishers, agents, and more. Here are a few screenshots of that:
I am honored, and humbled. Sigh.
