BlogCritics * The Pacific Between * The Plain Dealer

Ray turned me onto BlogCritics. I joined Tuesday, became an official critic at BlogCritic yesterday, and sent my first review this afternoon.

They published my review today.

Check out my review of The Pacific Between by Raymond K. Wong.

This evening, Ray informed me that my review was picked up by the Plain Dealer at Cleveland.com. What a rush! I haven’t published anything in the Plain Dealer since the 80’s.

Thanks Dawno. Just found out it was picked up by four more online pubs. The more circulation the review gets, the more exposure for Ray's book. I'm thrilled for him. ;)
