Hi Karl,

Your Blog is really cool! Poor Emile Zola...but I like the title you gave your one star review. The only 1 star review I've gotten so far was from a reviewer who also gave James Joyce's Ullyses a one star! If you feel like reviewing anything more mored...Indie and self published, do let me know and I'll send you a pdf copy of THE BRIDGE OF DEATHS

You are most welcome Karl!  I did check out your blog - and am also a fan of OBbDG...  (I love that as a title, btw) I am not on Blogger so can't subscribe to your posts via Atom, but have you bookmarked as I always love hearing someone else's opinions on the classics (which most people can't be bothered to read/review anymore)...  Thanks for the comment and invite to check it out!  Best of luck with it...

Hi! Welcome to Book Blogs—if you are in the oftentimes horrific proposal / query letter process and are hunting for that elusive agent OR… if you have decided to go the ebook way…then join me at The Agent Challenge. After all, the proposal process isn’t just for agents. A proposal is your marketing strategy! Also, I’m giving away the 2012 big book of agents or a book from one of our mentors. Drawing from followers at the end of February!
