Since it’s happened a few times in the last week, a plea to authors wanting to ask me about blurbing your work:
Instead, please please please read my blurbing solicitation policy here (scroll down), for the correct way to get your editor or publisher to solicit a blurb. Yes, I realize it’s jumping through an extra hoop. Sorry, that’s how I do it. And doing it this way will save you from being offended when my answer to your request for a blurb is to point you to the policy. It’s up on the site in a fairly conspicuous place for a reason.
