Go out to your local Barnes & Noble and pick up today's New York Times. Turn to page 10B. You'll see a full page ad for Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code. You'll see the blurb reviews from some of the six of the country's most respected authors and reviewers.
Merrin's review blurb is just before Nelson DeMille's. Seriously. Seriously. Seriously.
See for yourself:
Congratulations, Merrin! I am so proud of you! I know how publishers & authors have been coming to you for (literally) years and asking you to read drafts, manuscripts, editors' copies, advance copies, etc. I know that you've always been asked to review these and your suggestions have made it into books. I'm so proud that they are recognizing all you've done over the years. I know Dan Brown is glad & proud, too!
PS– If anyone gets the electronic edition of the New York Times, I'd love to get a copy of today's edition as a keepsake. Thanks!
