March 2011 Indie Next List: I Couldn't Have Said it Better

Order Here
This will go out to booksellers across America, in print and online:

Bringing Adam Home: The Abduction That Changed America

by Les Standiford & Joe Matthews

Ecco, 3/1/11

"As riveting as any thriller, as poignant as any memoir, and as powerful as any investigative journalism, Bringing Adam Home is impossible to put down. The key scenes are beautiful, simple renderings of vulnerability and truth laid bare. This is a gripping work which should become a classic of the genre, not because of the crimes it explores, but for how it casts light into darkness."
- Aaron John Curtis, Books & Books, Coral Gables, FL
Sure, David Mitchell, James Salter, and Joyce Maynard have surged off of Books & Books' shelves in part because of stuff I've posted on the internet, but the Indie Next List is an actual cog in the publishing industry.  I think this means I'm officially a buzz generator.

Of course, my recommendations would mean nothing if not for the work of such great storytellers.  To all the authors who've enriched my life, even those I haven't come around to blogging about, I offer a heartfelt thanks.


  1. What's the buzz, Buzzmaster? Excellent blurb... can't wait to read the book!
