From Our Portfolio: Mary Glickman

I have already called attention to the novel One More River by Mary Glickman elsewhere on this blog. It was a tremendously satisfying read, even for a proofreader. The book is now available in both print and electronic formats--click on the cover image for information.

The Midtown Review has just posted an interview with Mary Glickman at their site. Click here to give it a listen.

Proofreading for Pleasure?

It's always nice when a project I am proofreading turns out to be a book I would be very likely to read even without being paid for it.

In this case the book is a novel entitled One More River by Mary Glickman, published by Open Road Integrated Media.

It is not even listed at Amazon yet, but the author's previous novel, Home in the Morning, can be found at Amazon's Mary Glickman page. I suspect that I will be purchasing a copy, most likely of the Kindle edition, in the near future. (Unless the publisher would like to send me the paperback, of course.) In both novels Glickman writes about Jews in the American South. One More River tells the tale of Mickey Moe Levy, and forebears, from the early 20th twentieth century to the Vietnam War era.

I won't say much here because I really want to get back to work on it. I mean, I love beating deadlines but I also really want to know what's going to happen next...

Later!

[Update, October 6: One More River is now available for pre-order at Amazon (click on image below) or at Open Road.]
