Dear readers: some of my posts may involve politics, because it underlays the plot of my latest work-in-progress. Viewer discretion is advised. If you write an engaging or intelligent comment, even if I don’t happen to agree with it, thank you.

However, the comments left by trolls or ogres will disappear without causing me a moment of regret. If a post threatens to devolve into a mud-wrestling match, I’ll shut off the comments. Let’s try to keep this enjoyable for everyone.

Midwest Book Review raves about SOUTH

MBR LogoThe April 2014 Midwest Book Review Small Press Bookwatch includes this insanely great review of South:

“South” is a riveting work of action/adventure suspense that is a real page-turner of a novel. Author Lance Charnes demonstrates a truly impressive knack for deftly creating a complex and thoroughly engaging story that grabs and holds the reader’s rapt attention from beginning to end. A novel that could be ripped from today’s headlines about cross-border narco-terrorism, “South” is highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Contemporary Fiction collections.

This is a big win because Midwest Book Review is one of those reviewers that librarians pay attention to. I had some success placing Doha 12 in libraries partly on the strength of its MBR review; I hope to repeat that for South.
