“Mulford confronts her troupe of reluctant crime solvers with plenty of action and a few surprises.”
So ends Kirkus Reviews’ 300-word review of Show Me the Gold, the third mystery in my Show Me series. Five Star/Gale, Cengage releases the hardback and e-book editions December 17.
As usual, Kirkus is the first pre-publication reviewer. The publisher sends paperback uncorrected proofs (often called advanced reader copies—ARCs) to national review publications three to four months before the release date.
I send out copies to my own list, which consists mostly of bloggers and newsletters. Few newspapers today carry staff-written book reviews. The reviews, and some interviews, that I generate will come later. So will comments on such sites as GoodReads and Amazon.
That later response makes the first review from a well-respected magazine particularly special.
