Blurbs

The Pack: Winter Kill has been available for a few months now, and I’m thrilled that people have been enjoying it. As of today, the trade paperback edition has earned fifteen 5-star reviews and one 4-star review, including a 5-star review from one of Amazon’s top 50 reviewers.

Here are some of the things folks have had to say about The Pack: Winter Kill outside of Amazon reviews:

The Pack: Winter Kill is short, snappy, and about as sweet as a chewed stogie, combining elements of pulp horror, hard-boiled detective, noir, and cinematically fast-moving action.” — LJ Moore, San Francisco’s City Secrets

“Gunfire, claws, and teeth all erupt in one wild melee of mayhem.” — Sheila Merritt, Hellnotes

The Pack: Winter Kill is a page turner with fast action, succinct dialogue and short chapters. Mike Oliveri races you through the book and you clamber to turn the pages fast enough.” – Ron Earl Phillips, 52 Books

Winter Kill is an action film made word. Sticky blood. Smart violence. Real characters. This is the kind of book I like to read.” – Weston Ochse, author of Empire of Salt

This is the kind of thing that gets me excited to write the next book. If you’ve been thinking about buying The Pack: Winter Kill, pull the trigger! You won’t be disappointed.

Blurbage

It’s not uncommon for writers to ask one another for blurbs, the promotional quotes that often appear on covers or in a book’s front matter. I’ve got a small collection of them myself, and I’ve provided a handful over the past several years. However, it’s been a while since anyone’s asked me for one.

Until Monday, that is. That afternoon, two separate blurb requests rolled into my email inbox.

I’m not quite sure how I ended up with the requests. Don’t get me wrong, these are both friends of mine and good writers, and I’m more than happy to help them out, but I’m not sure what good my name will do them. Why would my word carry weight if I haven’t been able to get a novel published since 2001? How do people know who I am if I’ve been only sporadically published since 2003? Or if my productivity has been crap since 2005? Sure, there’s the Stoker thing, but does anyone really care?

Or am I just being a neurotic freakshow again?
