WHOLLY HITS BATMAN, look at all these goodies. Matthew Savoca and Kendra Grant Malone stopped by to hand deliver their books and draw some love in them. From RIGHT TO LEFT: MOROCCO, EVERYTHING IS QUIET, I DONT KNOW I SAID, and LONG LOVE POEM WITH DESCRIPTIVE TITLE. Thanks you two J train writers!
Just like how a great song always has a bit of magic in it, great novels are the combination of an engaging story, excellent prose, and something ethereal, some intangible element that is as powerful as it is unidentifiable. Matthew Savoca’s I Don’t Know I Said is entertaining and well-written, but what makes it a superb narrative is that it seems to have be put together using that mysterious, insubstantial component as glue.
Gabino Iglesias wrote a really great review of I Don’t Know I Said for Verbicide Magazine.
We are going to give away three copies of IDKIS, Matthew Savoca’s road novel, to people who have some sort of trip planned. You know, for reading in the car or bus or boat. Want one? There’s more stuff, too. To enter, go here.
