“Listening to the ABC Book Review Podcast is like overhearing two young women talking on a bus. Beth Hatch and Cari Dubiel of the Twinsburg (Ohio) Public Library seem to just turn on a microphone and start yakking.” Cynthia Crossen, Wall Street Journal Online

“I felt like I was eavesdropping on the two of you chatting about books over coffee at your kitchen table. You guys are so funny! Love it!”  Lara Oliver, RandomHouse Audio

    Dear Madam;
    I am writing this request to see if you would be open to interview me (Kipjo K. Ewers) in regards to my very first Sci-Fi superhero novel called “The First”.

    Though this is my very first novel I have been given some very good word of mouth reviews about it, and believe that it would be something you be very much interested in discussing.

    The First, is an intriguing, exciting story of FBI Agent Mark Armitage who travels to Gatesville, Texas to investigate and hunt down escape death row fugitive Sophia Dennison. Upon arriving, he learns the disturbing truth of what happened several hours before her escape. The race is now on, as Mark Armitage must find and bring her to justice. In doing so, he will uncover truths and deep dark hidden secrets about her and the very government he serves, that may change the world we live in…forever.

    It’s a story with interesting characters and plenty of serious conflicts. Right from the beginning, the story opens on a tense note as Sophia Dennison is led to her death row fate. Mark’s entry into the story is equally compelling as the reader learns of the events in the aftermath of Dennison’s planned execution. He is then confronted by Director Rosen the leader of a mysterious government faction under the United States, who tells him to back off from the case, which only fuels Mark’s fire to solve it. From the outset, the reader is introduced to two strong protagonists and the antagonist, and the central conflict comes into view.

    The race is on to see which governmental faction—the FBI or Rosen’s mysterious group—will catch and bring super-human Sophia Dennison to justice.

    If you are interested in the story, I would be honored to sit down and share my book and story with you.
    I look forward to hearing positively from you soon.

    Thanking you in advance.

    I’ve never been called Madam before! I need to go check on my brothel – make sure those chicks aren’t getting into trouble or using all the shampoo.

    Hello, I’ve been listening to your show and you are amazing! I wonder if you could include “Four Parts of the Universe” (Darren Pryce). I found this book and I think it’s worth being discussed by you :) ! I don’t know if you can connect with the author via amazon, so he could give you a book for a review, but please, try if you are interested, i think it might be fun! Thanx!) Here’s the link:
