Books: Ones you MUST READ

I have decided to do a post with a bunch of books you must read. I’ll do blurbs on these books later, but for now just the titles and my glowing recommendation. So, in no particular order and coming from a wealth of genres, I give you:

Kushiel’s Dart by Jaqueline Carey
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

What I Did For Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein

Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
Something Missing by Matthew Dicks

    Thanks so much for including my book on your list! It's quite an honor, especially considering the other books that you've included on the list. Great company! Looking forward to reading your blurb on the book, and if there's every anything I can do to help promote your blog (or anything else), let me know! I'll be linking to it in a post later this week for sure!And my next book, UNEXPECTEDLY, MILO, comes out on August 3 of this year if you're interested in more of my work.Thanks again! You made my day!Warmly,Matt————Matthew

    Wow! Um, hi! What a small world the internet creates. How in the world did you even find me?

    If you have any useful tips on publication, though, don't be afraid to pass them my way. šŸ˜‰

    I have a Google Alert set up for my name, so when someone posts something about me and the book, I get directed to the site. Originally it was done out of curiosity, but I've discovered that it allows me to read out to reads such as yourself, which has been a lot of fun.

    In terms of publishing, in what part of the process are you specifically seeking advice? I'd be happy to give you some suggestions. Just give me an idea about what you would like to know.

    Well, I'm currently finishing up my umpteenth edit, but I've reached the point where I either need an agent's input or to hire a professional to look over the book (which I can't afford). I've been really close to contracts with a couple of agents, but they always seem to fall through at the last second. So I guess the part I'm at right now would be the polishing and representation stage.
