dream come true

Monday, September 08, 2008

Confession: I've been reading Publishers Weekly for a little over three years now, and it's always been a dream of mine to have a book reviewed in the magazine.

Today, that dream came true.

Living Dead Girl received a starred review in the September 8th issue.

From the review: Disturbing but fascinating, the book exerts an inescapable grip on readers--like Alice, they have virtually no choice but to continue until the conclusion sets them free.

To say that I am happy would be a HUGE understatement. To be reviewed in the magazine is amazing. To get a starred review...I seriously don't have words. But to give you a clue as to how happy I am:

When my editor called and told me, I screamed so loud I'm afraid I perforated her eardrum. And as I type this, my hands are still shaking.
