‘Not Quite Right’ has ‘great honor’ of being featured in Kirkus magazine

Everyone has been so supportive of my humor book, “Not Quite Right: Mostly True Tales of a Weird News Reporter” and, as I reported earlier, I received a wonderful Kirkus Review last month that read, in part:

“Fans of Fannie Flagg should be overjoyed to discover the rustic, lighthearted musings of this Southern writer, who enchants with keen, droll observations and needlepoint wisdom.”

Then I learned the review was featured in the August edition of Kirkus magazine. I received an email saying the review “was selected by our Indie Editors to be featured in Kirkus Reviews August 1 Issue. Congratulations! Your review appears as one of the 35 reviews in the Indie section of the magazine which is sent out to over 5,000 industry professionals (librarians, publishers, agents, etc.) Less than 10% of our Indie reviews are chosen for this, so it’s a great honor.”

I am quite excited. Kirkus is a well-respected book reviewer followed by industry professionals. Good reviews provide authors with blurbs for their book covers and promotions, as well as visibility to publishers and agents. I hope it will help me with my book.A screen shot of the page is below, as well as a cute video Sweetums made about my review.
