I NEED YOUR HELP. FOR REAL. I WILL GIVE YOU A SOVIET ROCKET. FOR REAL.
I WANT YOUR QUOTE ON THE BACK OF MY BOOK.
So, here is the deal. On the backs of my book covers I always put 2-3 quotes from readers. My daughter @amili is designing the back cover for THE BADLINGS right now, and I need your quotes! If you have read the last draft, let me know your thoughts! If you haven't read it, you can download it here and read it. So far this is what I have collected from various posts in various places:
"It feels like i'm reading an american version of Enid Blyton - except that you're a lot better than her..."
"A very Alice in Wonderlandy feel to it."
"This one's obviously aimed at a younger audience and it reads rather like Ocean at the End of the Lane."
"I am growing fond of each of the badlings in his or her own way...
"Your book is sucking me in. I can't stop reading."
"There's an almost cathartic quality to your writing, as if the reader is expected to ride along this exorcism from the mental shackles of linear stories foisted upon elementary and middle school kids by straight-laced yet well-intentioned educators."
"You're doing a wonderful job of capturing the spirit of each story the gang lands in. I love the travelers' quick thinking and interactions in each new environment. Their adventures help me see the source material in a completely different way which is part of the fun."
"The characterizations are really strong, and the description matches the tone and pacing perfectly. I've always loved the dialogue between your characters, because they flow so easily, so naturally. You are a natural storyteller, who bleeds life onto the pages of your works. So, keep bleeding!"
