Can anyone tell me the difference between Publisher's Weekly and Kirkus reviews?

Hi, everyone! This is Setsuko Tsuchiya, author of IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY (Savant, in preparation). I'm checking in from work, as I work Saturdays. I'm excited that my book is now in proofing, and was surprised at how many things Savant does in preparation of a book release!

Eleonor, I wish every student could have the on campus experience -- especially students who have never been away from home.

Has anyone read Andrew Massie's new psychological FBI novel just released, IN THE SHADOWS OF MY MIND (Savant 2017)?  I have a copy by my bedside and enjoy a chapter every night!

I was so busy during editing and polishing, I never thought about my work actually getting published. Now that it's almost time, I'm a little nervous. Has anyone here gone through this? Advice? Suggestions?

Definitely, Lynne. I left home at 17--best decision I ever made. It did make it uncomfortable to go to school for my undergrad with students who were younger than me though. Lol. I went back in my late 20s after joining the workforce first.

Anyone a fan of the poet, Walter de la Mare?  I'm planning to use one of his eerie poems as a preface to my novel.

I think I'm replying to Setsuko's post. Setsuko, if that is you, could you please type your name at the end of your postings, as the chat simply shows you as "Unregistered."  

Wow - do I know that feeling! For me it's like seeing a newborn for the first time after months of waiting. The first thing everyone does is count fingers and toes, then, after a sigh of relief, everyone notices how amazing and beautiful the new addition is. When one of my newly released works is in my hands, I always feel a deep sense of awe. Sometimes I re-read it, simply to see what I wrote, and, I'm pleased to say, the best compliment to me as an author comes when I think to myself, did I really write that? It's incredible! I wish you and all our Savant / Aignos authors the same wonderful experience.

Aloha and surry about that - I'm having to use my cell phone during my short break. Yes, this is Setsuko. Thank you for your reassurance, Dan. I don't feel so nervous nw. Instead, I'm excited about holding my book in my hands for the first time. Thank you.

Hey Lynne, tell us something about your new work that's in editing. Maybe a short synopsis or something about the process you went through in writing it and getting a publisher.

Dear Setsuko,

Yes, I have helped Helen sell Cleopatra Victorious for a year. Here is our advice:

Tell everyone you have ever been in contact with about your book by phone, text, and email. Tell them again every chance you get. Be very bold about calling newspapers, magazine, radio stations, and TV stations about your great book . Speak at local schools, rotary clubs, book stores and Chamber of Commerce events. Remember you know your book's topic better than anyone else. Think of sales and marketing as a research opportunity and be confident that your work is very good or Savant would not be publishing it.

Eleonor, good for you, going to school later.  College is often wasted on 18-year-olds.  I went to grad. school in my 30's -- while teaching and raising two children.  Oddly enough, I finished my degree earlier than my younger, fellow (mostly male) students, who, if they have children, also had wives.  Too much free time on your hands can be a detriment to writing/studying.

OMG - I've got to go. My break is over. I really appreciate everyone's advice. I'll at least check in on more advice after work today. Bye!
