Happy news

Yesterday my editor emailed me a page of positive reviews (they were all in-house, but they were all kind) on Bright Blue Miracle. It was fun to have people actually say nice things about my story/characters/voice and then SIGN THEIR NAMES TO IT!

...although I have to say that my favorite review used the words, "I didn't think I'd like this book". It's good comedy and irony and possibly humility-inducement.

I read Karen Hesse's "Brooklyn Bridge" yesterday -- she's amazing. Good historical fiction, good voice. Bad grammar didn't bother me after the first couple pages, because Joseph's voice was a charming reflection of his "straight-up Brooklyn guy"-ness.
