Like this stunning review by Brent over at Naughty Book Kitties.
"Vera Dietz has got to be one of my favorite books of 2010. Because everything about it was perfect. The characters, the writing, the plot, the emotion. I felt it all. And loved it all. Vera Dietz and I would be best friends. I think anyone could be best friends with Vera, just because she’s so relatable, and real. And sarcastic. And emotional. And funny."Dude Brent. I am so glad you liked Vera. I have a feeling she would like you just as much.Thanks for the kind words. I especially loved your ending: BYE! GO, LEAVE, GET OFF MY BLOG AND GO READ THIS BOOK.
And check this out. DEATH has interviewed Vera Dietz on his radio show here at Jackie Morse Kessler's Post Mortem. Here's a snippet:
DEATH: Hey, Vera!
VERA: Uh. Hi…Death.
DEATH: So hit me: In one sentence, what’s PLEASE IGNORE VERA DIETZ about?
VERA: If you think your best friend dying is a bitch, try your best friend dying after he screws you over and being the only one who knows the truth about how he died.
Go over to Post Mortem to read more...and find out the one thing that Vera and I have in common. Hint: it's on our heads. And don't forget to pick up a copy of Jackie's HUNGER after October 19th! It's an amazing book. I know. I read it and I loved it so much, I blurbed it too:
"A fantastic and gripping read that never shies from its difficult subject matter. This book is a knockout." —A.S. King, author of The Dust of 100 Dogs
October Mover and Shaker over at Goodreads. This was a surprise and really really cool to find out through a good friend who pointed out that it arrived in his newsletter. It's esepcially cool to be on a list of six books with the authors of those five other books. Swoon! And here's a link to the giveaway there, too.
And lastly...this is the LAST CALL for those of you who might live near enough to come and help us celebrate Vera's launch into the world! The NATIONAL LAUNCH PARTY for the book is October 16th from 6-8 at Aaron's Books in Lititz, PA and we will be having some serious fun! Click on this picture for full details. PLEASE RSVP so we know how much food to get! It's important!
