Today marks the release of Jamie Ford's first novel: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet. I heard about this book through his agent as she shared on her blog different aspects of selling his book to the publisher. And somewhere along the line, probably through this agent again, I read an excerpt. It was fascinating! So take it from me (like I really know anything about it, but still), this promises to be a big book. I think Ford is one of those authors who is going somewhere (from what I can tell, he's the next Nicholas Sparks...or something like that). Now that it's been released I'm trying to figure out how and when I can get myself a copy.
In the meantime, if you're looking for some good reading, check it out. I don't know Jamie Ford. He's not paying me to push his book. All I'm in it for is the opportunity to say, "see? I told ya!".
