Reviews are In!!


This was a week of reviews!   The whole phenomenon of blog reviewers is relatively new – and so valuable, given the huge emphasis on social media.


I’m quoting from the reviews here (for the complete reviews, go to Nix Minus One’s home page).


“…fabulous new verse novel…violent, redemptive, sad, uplifting…”  (For Those Who Know)


“Nix – 1 =Jill MacLean2”   (CanLit for Little Canadians)


“I loved the point of view. I loved the characters. I loved this book.” (Tinlids)


“…this book tackles sensitive issues and oftentimes delivers powerful and upsetting punches…a story well told.”       (CM Magazine)


“…an absorbing, emotionally resonant book.”   (Quill & Quire)


“…the characters are expertly drawn…so worthy of your attention.”  (Sal’s Fiction Addiction)


As you may have realized, I’m trying to increase my online presence (it’s called salesmanship).  Trouble is, I hear my mother whispering in my ear, “Stop showing off!”.


Does anyone else have a problem with self-publicizing?  I’d love to hear from you, either way!
