I Will Blurb Any Book Within 24 Hours! #5


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:

Tao Lin’s Eeeee Eee Eeee: “We are no longer used to novelists, or the tragic living-dead writers this country has produced. Tao Lin writes with dialogue and characters, sometimes in a single line.” – Mickey Hess

Bradley Sands’ It Came From Below the Belt: “Zombies, go to the library. Bradley Sands can get that dead heart of yours to beat again.” – Mickey Hess

Joe Meno’s The Great Perhaps: “Like Hank Williams, Joe Meno knows that there is no greater adventure than gripping books. Since Meno literally created The Great Perhaps, numerous fans have witnessed the book’s process of reinventing itself. The book genre is a has-been in the face of this eye-opening work — a challenge to fans by a fascinating author. Grip this book. There is no greater adventure.” – Mickey Hess

John Dimes’ There Are No Bad Movies: “John Dimes wrote a novel about characters and their parents. And soon you realize that the book is over, and then you’re like, wait, that’s some resonant fiction. Kind of Holden Caulfield/minimalist prose, seen in retrospect.” – Mickey Hess

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