It’s Official!!!


Dec. 5: The Long Road to Paris has been named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2011. More than 1 million Indie titles are published each year and only 50 have been named to Kirkus Reviews Best of the Year. We are thrilled to have made this list as you can imagine.

You can go to Kirkus website with the following link:

Next week the Indie books will be featured on their home page and throughout the site, so check back. This will also come out in the Dec. 1 print issue of Kirkus Reviews that is  mailed to thousands of industry persons, including bookstores, publishers and book distributors. This should spread the word!

We still have a couple of secrets we can’t yet reveal. What will be next????

About ejhowle23

Authors and adventurers, participated in the World Race 2011, an automobile rally from New York to Paris, crossing three continents and 14,000 land miles. Following much the same route as the setting for our debut novel, The Long Road to Paris. This blog describes our own adventures and challenges. And now you can follow our Bahamas sailing adventure that provides the setting for our second novel, Night Watch. Our rally, the African Safari Challenge, crossed five countries in South Africa in May 2014 and in 2015 we participated in the second Trans-American rally this time from Nova Scotia to San Francisco. Spring of 2016 we travelled 28 days around Australia with friends from previous rallies and in the fall participated in our most exhausting rally through Argentina, Chili and Peru- the Rally of the Incas. We were awarded the Against All Odds award. We're still not sure if this was for us or our car. Stewball never broke down and we hardly did. We will soon take on Iceland as a self-drive tour and in the fall of 2017 we will participate in the Odyssey Italia and then back to Africa for a do-over (almost) of the Africa Safari Challenge.

    I’m impressed with your Kirkus news! Even as far away as I am, down here in sunny Florida, I can feel the glow from accomplishment.

    To your continued success!

    Jan and Ed,

    Well, you know how I feel about those Kirkus reviews. They are the first ones that come out, and they serve as a springboard for other reviews to come.

    Once again, that is just fabulous. Arnie and I are so happy for you.

    Take care, and lots of hugs from Joshua Tree where we arrived today from Death Valley,
