Chip Off the Old Block

DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD has been fortunate to garner some nice reviews so far (thanks, reviewers), but my favorite review came from my 12-year-old son:

“No offense, Dad, but that book is way too good to be written by you.”

Thanks, son!

*****

D and SBe sure to visit the blog on Wednesday for wonderful guest blogger Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams, author of the just-released Delicious and Suspicious. Yummy!

When your book has its second printing, INSIST that be one of the blurbs. Nah, just kidding. Or am I? Another mystery...

Alan Orloff said...

Rayna - I love the comments that begin, "no offense..."

Margot - The review was completely unbiased, of course.

Mary - That kid might have a future as a judge on American Idol.

Mason - I think you mean "left-handed."

Elspeth - I like your thinking, but it would probably give him a big head.

I love that.

My kids are all grown up and they mostly just ignore the whole writing thing. Mom as writer? Does not compute.
