Three Starred PW Reviews in a Row!

Post by TonyHays » Thu February 17th, 2011, 12:48 am

I was absolutely stunned this week to see that the third novel in my Arthurian Mystery series, The Beloved Dead, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. That means each of the first three volumes scored a starred review from PW and Library Journal. When I started this series, I never dreamed that I would get even one. I'm going to go to sleep now and hope that when I wake up it won't prove to be a dream.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I really thought I had run out of my luck on the last book. But I never turn away a good review.
