If this Kirkus gig has taught me anything

May 16, 2011

it’s that 1) having an editor is awesome, and 2) there’s no way I’d be able to review for a professional print publication because I cannot review concisely.

I’m reviewing Rachel Neumeier’s The Floating Islands at the Kirkus blog today, and even though I had a lot more words to work with than your standard print review, I still wasn’t able to fit in everything I wanted to say.

Namely, I think the book cover is just perfect. And, it’s not a perfect readalike for Megan Whalen Turner, Tamora Pierce, or Alison Goodman’s Eon, but it includes some similar elements to them. So if you enjoyed the three, I think this is worth taking a chance on.

    Oh yes, it used to KILL ME to boil reviews down to whatever, 200 words. Impossible! The Kirkus gig looks waaay more fun.
