Maybe a Milestone?

So, I’m about to start reading a book.

This, as you may imagine, is not the potential milestone to which the subject header refers. I have, oddly enough, read a few books in my time.

No, it’s the fact that this is an advanced copy of a book, that I’ve been sent because I’ve been asked–for the very first time in my career–to provide one of those little blurbs/cover quotes that you see on the back covers, or first few pages, of various novels.ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Obviously, I can’t say what the book is, or who it’s for–but I will say that being asked to do a blurb actually feels really damn good. The idea that enough people may like my work for my recommendation to be worth seeking out… Well, it’s a really nice feeling.

I don’t know if there are any official markers on the road to "making it" as an author, but if there are, this almost has to be one of them, doesn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜€
