I can't believe this one. I have been asked to do a 'blurb' for a book. I here you ask 'whats a blurb'?
Well pick up the average book, like 80% of them, and look at the back cover, they have those one sentence reviews written by famous people. Well I have been asked if I would do one for a book coming out on June! This is the next best thing to actually being an author.
Now if that isn't bragging rights I don't know what is.
I also received an really interesting manuscript this week. Alas it looks like its publication is going to be delayed for a while. It concerns the assassination of Martin Luther King, unfortunately the author and publisher are concerned about some potential litigation from the 'very far right' white supremacy sector, and have decided to spend more time backing up their assertions. Now personally I would be more concerned about my personal safety rather than the potential for a law suit. These are some not very nice people to have on their 'bad side'.
Ah, the joys of being a reviewer, I get to review things that don't actually exist yet! hahahaha
