Review of Death at Solstice

A great mini-review in LIBRARY JOURNAL just came in: Corpi, Lucha. Death at Solstice: A Gloria Damasco Mystery. Arte Publico. 2009. c.240p. ISBN 978-1-55885-547-2

In her fourth outing (after Black Widow’s Wardrobe), Chicana sleuth Gloria Damasco has no idea that the road to finding stolen jewelry in the wine country of California’s Shenandoah Valley will lead to murder, kidnapping, and great danger. Verdict Corpi has constructed a twisting story line that confounds her intelligent detective and the reader at every turn. This will please readers looking for a fast-paced tale with a Hispanic cultural background.

A Note from Full Circle Literary

Visit and read the amazing tips from Sarah Burningham about promoting your books on line.

*****From Sarah:

So, you want to get your book reviewed on some blogs. Here’s a step-by-step guide with tips for reaching out to bloggers and making good connections.

As an author, you should:

- Read blogs. Lots of them. Every day.

- Make a list of the blogs you particularly like and the ones you think actually fit with your book. Note that these might be two different categories. Be brutally honest with yourself. Just because you like baking pies doesn’t mean that a baking blog is going to review your memoir of horse racing.
