i got my first (and second) blurb!  Reply with quote  

"Del Sesto pays homage to Tom Robbins and Christopher Moore in this clever, insightful, and flat-out hilarious novel while maintaining an entirely original point of view, making All Encompassing Trip one of my favorite books of the year!"


Jen Lancaster - Bitter is the New Black

I'm delighted!

i got a second blurb

All Encompassing Trip is a trip! Imagine Kafka, Kerouac, and Douglas Adams on the road, and you'll get a feel for this completely original, witty, and wild book that's (thank goodness!) anything but normal. Del Sesto's prose sparkles. What a great debut. -- Lori Jakiela, author of Miss New York Has Everything

Oh, Ses, Ses, Ses -- that's all you ever think about! (Pace Monty Python's Life of Brian).

Anyway, Knikkki, this is great press! I'm so glad for you!

Out of the gate and on a roll! Congratulations. Smile

I was going to put blurbs on Mr. Undesirable culled from my rejection letters. Great comments, such as:

"I can't publish this shit!", "low brow filth", and "[Lenny Kapowski] is an unsympathetic character and I'd rather see him die than read about him."

Good stuff, but I still like yours better.

BOOTA!!!! I've been thinking about you and wondering where you were. It's good too "see" you. Hope all is well.
