Today I got word from a reviewer of historical novels that The First Shall Be Last has arrived, and she is looking forward to reading it and reviewing it. This is a long process, and the review won't be published for three to six months. That's okay with me because the book is not scheduled to come out until September 15, 2008. About twelve reviewers will receive copies of The First Shall Be Last. If three or four end up reviewing it, I will be happy. Usually only about 15% of the books reviewers receive are actually reviewed. But one review can make a huge difference in sales to bookstores and libraries.
Talk to you later,
Joe C. Ellis
