Publishers Weekly calls FOR THE KING “a gripping historical”


For the King

The Publishers Weekly review, released a month or two before publication, is a milestone in every book’s journey. PW is, of course, a major trade magazine targeted at publishing professionals, librarians and booksellers. People whose opinion is crucial to the success of a book. But its reach extends far beyond: its review will be featured prominently on the book’s Amazon page. All right, it is not yet on For the King‘s page, but it will get there soon. Thus the PW review is often the first thing a potential reader will read about one’s book when she browses online.

And PW calls For the King “a gripping historical.” The reviewer notes that “themes of class conflict, the messy process of change, and impossible love are nicely woven into the tense central plot of this fast-moving chase through the damp, rutted streets of turn-of-the-19th-century Paris.”

I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better.
