A Great Week For Reviews

I received a big surprise earlier this week when FBC's Mihir Wanchoo released his Top Reads of 2011 list.


He awarded Zero Sight Debut Novel of the Year, and Zero Sum made it onto his novels of the year list right behind Blake Crouch's Run!
"Brian’s books were possibly the find of the year for me, combing humor, action and an exciting writing style, the Zero Sight series is one to be absolutely savored. Currently writing his third book Brian’s witty prose makes him an excellent addition to the writer league of Butcher, Hearne, Marquitz, etc."
I cannot express how cool it is to have my books featured on FBC, let alone be awarded Debut of the Year.

Thanks, Mihir!

And if that wasn't wonderful enough, Lady Danielle from Bitten by Books just released reviews of both books today!


Bitten by Books review of Zero Sight
"Zero Sight is an exciting, fast-paced, refreshing novel in the young adult genre, one that adults can enjoy equally."
Bitten by Books review of Zero Sum
"Zero Sum is a must-read for fantasy lovers. This novel has a lot of wit, unforgettable characters, great writing, and lots of intriguing fantasy elements and action that will keep a reader entertained from start to finish."
Thanks, Lady Danielle!

As always, if you run a review site, I am always happy to send you ARC copies of my books. We indies sink or swim based on reader word-of-mouth, and I'm truly indebted to all the brave spelunkers that risk a read.

Now back to writing ZS3...
