Have you ever heard of Z!NK magazine? It’s may very well be the hippest publication on earth and I’m not using the word ‘hip’ casually. If you check out their website you’ll understand what I mean. Anyway they reviewed my book in their May issue and it is a rave!!!
Usually there’s one good quote that an author or publisher can pull out of any given book review. But this review was so good that I literally don’t know which quote to pick! Seriously, consider some of my choices:
“In the thrilling chick lit murder mystery….Kyra Davis creates effortless genre fusion”
“Davis…explores (and explodes) racial boundaries with the book’s charming protagonist”
“Sex, Murder And A Double Latte is good to the last drop.”
I swear it’s enough to turn a girl’s head! It couldn’t have come at a better time either. You see there are a lot of things I love about being an author. I love the writing process, I enjoy giving interviews (which is a good thing because I’ve done a lot of them lately) and I adore public speaking so the readings I have scheduled shouldn’t be a problem.
But I’m not very good at waiting and that’s exactly what I’m forced to do right now. I won’t have access to any sales numbers for another 6 weeks and while that really isn’t a long time in the grand scheme of things it still feels like an eternity. I spend an obscene amount of time checking my Amazon and Barnes & Noble ranking even though I know they’re not a very accurate representation of how my book is doing. I Google myself daily checking for new reviews. I check the stores to see if my book is there and take special notice of it’s placement within the store. Unfortunately none of that tells me a lot. I’ve put a lot of effort into the publicity of this book but right now everything I’ve been working on in that capacity has already been set in motion and I just have to sit back, chew my nails and wait to see if my hard work is going to pay off.
So to see that kind of review in a glossy magazine thrills me while it simultaneously puts me at ease.
It’s just amazing; they like me! They really like me!
