Review: Blind Submission by Debra Ginsberg

I know, I'm a prolific reader lately, huh? When my life gets stressful, I read, read, read.

Oh, boy, if you have a book somewhere inside of you, you're going to have a hard time with this one. I myself have a non-fiction book in the works (pretty halfheartedly) and found myself setting down this book to search for agents online!!! It really whets your appetite to get published, so watch out for this one if you're not ready to submit query letters.

Set in a literary agency, the main character gets caught up in a mystery concerning an anonymous author who seems to be writing the story of her life -- with a not-so-savory ending, if you get my drift! The thing I just loved about this book was the characters, particularly the literary agent, Lucy Fiamma. It escapes me how anyone can imagine such a crazy lady!! And, I would have never, in a million years, guessed who-done-it.

What a great, fabulous book for book lovers everywhere!! Get your manuscripts out and ready to edit!

I don't usually read many mysteries, but this one sure sounds fun. Thanks for the review. It's nice that you're able to read when you're stressed; I'm usually the opposite. I've only managed to read three books in April. I hope the dry spell will end, soon.

you are NOT going to believe this, but I started this book and never finished it. Can you believe it! I can't remember why. I think I was too stressed about the possibilities or something. My hubby finished it and liked it. I even remember where I left off, so I guees I have to go back to the library and get it again and finish it.

hey, this is about a different book, but I've got one for you to add to your list: The Soloist by Steve Lopez. True story. Steve Lopez (L.A. Times columnist) was on KGO this afternoon talking about the book, the subject, the story behind it. Fascinating. I haven't read it yet but want to.
