One of the most dispiriting aspects of book publishing these days is the disappearance of outlets for reviews. Once upon a time there were hundreds of newspapers that ran book reviews. Today there's just a handful. The result is that many, many books get no reviews in the mainstream book reviews.
I've been lucky to have Brave Girl Eating mentioned in a couple of magazines. Thanks to those editors! And a number of bloggers have reviewed it too, and I am grateful. Thank you!
Still, reviews are important to people considering buying the book, and so I'm asking you, dear readers, if you would consider writing a review of the book on Amazon.com if you haven't already. The book has been doing reasonably well and I'd love to see that momentum continue. New reviews help, believe it or not.
You have my eternal gratitude. :)
