In Which I Am The Cause Of Hyperthyroidism

So I've gotten a couple reviews for CITY OF THE LOST already and the book's not even out for another month.

Last week I was, as the cool kids say, Klausnered. I can't profess to fully understand what was written in that review or why it sounds like it was dictated to a drunken Swede, but here's the takeaway:

It's... positive. Ish. I think. Pretty sure. The words "brisk", "engaging", "cannibalizing" and "hooker" are used. And I don't know about you but stick those four words in the same sentence and you got my attention, lemme tell ya.

And yesterday I got a starred review from Kirkus.

So I hear this Kirkus star thing is good. I can't read the whole review 'cause I don't have a subscription and it doesn't come out to the proles like you and me for a few more weeks.

But, and this is the important thing, they called it, "a remarkable debut" and "eye-bulging".

EYE-BULGING, people. That's me. I am the Avatar of Eye-Bulging! I'm like the Heat Miser for Grave's Disease.

And you know what that means?

It means I get a THEME SONG! Well, that and a fucked up haircut, but that's nothing new.

Now I just gotta figure out something that rhymes with Marty Feldman.

Congrats on the reviews! Hyperthyroidism causes weight loss... which means you could also take off in the diet market. Just sayin' :)
