  1. Hi:
    You mentioned that you’ll be back reviewing in the fall of 2017. I’m assuming it’s okay to request a review. I’ll keep it as short as possible.

    I’m querying you in hopes you’ll accept my 95K-word book “South of Main Street” for review. It was published by an Indie publisher in October of ’16 here in the United States. It was published once before 10 years ago by a vanity press that went bankrupt shortly after that publication. Hopefully, I had nothing to do with that (lol). However, the current publisher has no $ for a marketing push, so I must seek all the honest reviews I can. Of course, I accept whatever opinion you give – good or bad. Either way, I win. And they say you can’t teach old dogs new tricks. Ha.

    I’ll try and keep it short and sweet:
    • book title and date of publication and genre: South of Main Street, 10/2016, YA contemporary (book cover is available upon request)
    • Book publisher: Entrada publishing
    • Genre of the book, its length, format availability
    o Genre – written primarily for YA (but I’m told it has a much larger age demographics)
    o 270 pages or 95,255 Words
    o In PDF
    o Brief synopsis
    The mother dies, the dad’s emotionally challenged, and one of the two daughters is suing her father for financial control of the multi-million dollar estate. That’s the setup of South of Main Street, a heartwarming story named for the dividing line that exists between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’ in a fictitious town of Coalsville, Pennsylvania. The book is an uncommon mix of the child-like innocence of Forrest Gump (Henry – the hero of the story), Scrooge (mean-spirited money-grubbing sister), Chronicles of Narnia (state of believing in a secret door one steps thru into a pearly, magic-land) and even a nod to O Henri’s “Gift of the Magi’, all rolled into one.

    Thanks so much for the opportunity. Keep up the good work. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Oh, by the way, I was born right outside of Boston and my dad brought me to Long Island when I was 5 years old. To his discredit, or credit, he made me a Red Sox fan. Going to catholic school for 12 years was character building enough, but being a Boston fan during the 50’s and 60’s with NY Yankee, Brooklyn Dodger and NY Giant fans all around me was an enlightenment that I’m not likely to forget. Anyway, I hope you won’t hold this against me.
