I Will Blurb Any Book Within 24 Hours! #3


Tired of waiting weeks or even MONTHS for back-cover endorsements from recognizable authors? I, Mickey Hess, will blurb any book – that’s right, ANY book – within 24 hours! Just look at these satisfied customers:

Terese Svoboda’s Pirate Talk or Mermalade: “Books and stories – and perhaps readers – are mundane. I do not own books (I have a striking flat television), but Terese Svoboda’s book renders me sadder and a bit wiser than before she began to write it. And that fact is subtle and mysterious.” – Mickey Hess

Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom: “Suddenly, literary novelists find themselves well-to-do, dating women 30 years younger than Oprah. One of these authors is Jonathan Franzen. His book is a lonely thrillride.” – Mickey Hess

Lea Ryan’s Babylon Dragon: “Normally, when I write a book review I wear some ear muffs (I think that these would appeal to teenage girls), but when I read Lea Ryan’s Babylon Dragon I wore hats and gloves. Heartbreakingly, Lea Ryan writes about Christianity, mythology, and the supernatural . Maybe you can put it on your holiday wish list.” – Mickey Hess

Michael Stutz’s Circuits of the Wind: A Legend of the Net Age: “People who are fans of bookmarks will really enjoy this book (it’s several pages long).” – Mickey Hess

Joe Tripician’s Balkanized at Sunrise: “I have so many books to review right now. My favorite project is this book, which was gratefully received and is full of new ideas. The author, Joe Tripician, is beyond me, and this is a lovely book for people who want to read it. I drew several tiny hearts on the book’s cover. A few weeks ago, I would’ve thought that was silly.” – Mickey Hess

There are plenty more where those came from, trust me! Authors, contact me today at [email protected] and LET’S GET BLURBING!!!
