the blurb search

October 22, 2012

Have I mentioned how nerve-wracking it is, cold-calling one’s literary betters and asking them to read your manuscript and, if they like it, write a few words of recommendation to print on the jacket?

Well it is. But also potentially extremely gratifying. Blurb #1 is in, from the inestimably generous Larry McMurtry:

Mr. Tyer has written a lovely book, searing in its anger, about a beautiful but much-abused place.

Thank you, sir. Thank you very kindly.
