You may be wondering, What’s with those blue quotation marks in the sidebar, under “What We’re Reading”? :imthinking
Well, it just so happens that I’ve been asked to give another quote for another new book by another new author. :tada And while I’m excited about the prospect, I don’t feel 100% comfortable sharing the exact author & title until everything is said & done.
For one thing, I don’t know if the book even has a cover available yet, as I’m reading it in unedited galley form.
For another, there are dozens of things that could happen between now & the book’s release that could throw everybody’s well-laid plans off track. I mean, what if the author & editor change their minds about wanting my endorsement & solicit a different author for a quote? Wouldn’t I feel the fool for saying, “Hey, look—my name’s gonna be on this cover, too!” :cat
Or what if I start reading, but am unable to finish the book due to unforeseen circumstances? You know, like a sick grandma or looming deadline. Or what if I start reading, but the book is eerily similar to one of my own releases or upcoming projects & things just get weird? It happens.
So I thought it would be smarter to use a general graphic to let you know I am reading something, but I can’t tell you what just yet.
And since I’ve obviously started the book or those quotation marks wouldn’t be in the sidebar, I’ll also say this: So far, I’m quite enjoying the story. It’s very Desire-ish, which we all know I love…& is maybe why they asked me for a quote to begin with. :fangs I haven’t thought of anything witty or brilliantly quotable to say about it yet, but hopefully that will come. Because even if I weren’t reading it with an eye toward offering a quote, I’d still be eager to finish it. :yummy
