  6. re: book review request by award-winning author

    Dear Always Dreaming:

    I’m an award-winning author with a new YA book out the fall. Ugly To Start With is a series of thirteen interrelated stories about childhood being published by West Virginia University Press.

    Can I interest you in reviewing it?

    If you write me back at johnmcummings@aol.com, I can email you a PDF of my book. If you require a bound copy, please ask, and I will forward your reply to my publisher. Or you can write directly to Abby Freeland at:

    My publisher, I should add, can also offer your readers a free excerpt of my book through a link from your blog to my publisher’s website:

    Here’s what Jacob Appel, celebrated author of Dyads and The Vermin Episode, says about my new collection: “In Ugly to Start With, set in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, Cummings tackles the challenges of boyhood adventure and family conflict in a taut, crystalline style that captures the triumphs and tribulations of small-town life. He has a gift for transcending the particular experiences to his characters to capture the universal truths of human affection and suffering–emotional truths that the members of his audience will recognize from their own experiences of childhood and adolescence.”

    My short stories have appeared in more than seventy-five literary journals, including North American Review, The Kenyon Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, and The Chattahoochee Review. Twice I have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize. My short story “The Scratchboard Project” received an honorable mention in The Best American Short Stories 2007.

    I am also the author of the nationally acclaimed coming-of-age novel The Night I Freed John Brown (Philomel Books, Penguin Group, 2009), winner of The Paterson Prize for Books for Young Readers (Grades 7-12) and one of ten books recommended by USA TODAY.

    Thank you very much, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

  7. Hi Sharry,

    I checked out your blog and would love to have you blog a review for my new book, Angel Evolution. Is this something you would be interested in? It is the first book in a fantasy trilogy about angels and demons. See below for details, I would be happy to provide a free e-book and am willing to do a giveaway and/or author interview as well. Thanks,

    Angel Evolution Synopsis
    The first book in the young adult fantasy trilogy: The Evolution Trilogy… When Taylor meets Gabriel at college, she is in awe of the subtle glow that surrounds him. No one else, not even her best friend, seems to notice. Something about him scares her. Is all as it appears? While Taylor struggles for answers, she finds herself in the middle of a century old war centered on one miraculous revelation: evolution.

  9. Hi there. I wanted to reach out to you and see if you’d be interested in reviewing my new science fiction/fantasy book based in Egyptian and Greek mythology. Here’s some basic information about the book.

    Book name: The Emerald Tablet (Legends of Amun Ra, #1)
    Book author: Joshua Silverman
    Publisher: Enchanted Forest Press
    Leoros doesn’t have many friends. The son of a scientist and archaeologist, he is constantly on the move. But when his parents make a startling discovery in Egypt, Leoros’ world is turned upside down.

    Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil?

    When an archaeologist discovers the mythic Emerald Tablet buried beneath Egypt’s desert, her son decodes the ancient text leading him to a distant world.

    On that world, a slave girl begins a journey towards a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foe rises from the ashes, they will be brought together
    by forces neither understands.

    Leoros, who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books, must fight to unlock the secrets of the universe to save a people he never knew existed.

    Atlantia, whose bloody visions wake her in the night, senses the darkness coming.

    Together they will face an enemy with the power of dark energy, lose a mentor to the assassin’s blade, and be betrayed by someone they trust. Their fight for the future is just beginning, and before it is over, a final sacrifice must be made. When the darkness comes, will they stand and fight or will they join it?

    There is darkness in everyone.

    Review copy formats available (Paperback, ebook, PDF etc…): Paperback and PDF.

    Target audience (Adult, young-adult, child): YA (15+)
