Advance Readers; My November Blurb

Once a month the American Book Assoc. sends a box of Advance Readers, i.e. uncorrected proofs of books soon to be published. Some of the proofs are essentially ready to go, others are in dire need of editing. I have on occasion given my advice to the publisher on needed editing and have gotten a grateful reply. Mostly, I recommend a few books for upcoming Indie Next listings. The November list includes my blurb for The Puppy Diaries by Jill Abramson which I shamelessly include here:  “While there seems to be a new dog or cat book every month, what this one has going for it is the author’s track record as a popular blogger about dogs. Part memoir, part manual, part investigative report, The Puppy Diaries continues Abramson’s intrepid and intelligent reporting on all things canine.”
