Monster Librarian "Highly Recommends" Epitaph of Jonas Barloff

Authors crave good reviews, especially from specialists in their chosen genre.  So when Monster Librarian accepted the task of reviewing The Epitaph of Jonas Barloff, I took a deep breath, crossed my fingers and put my patience cap on knowing this could take a while.  A few weeks passed.  Nothing.  Then I got the highly anticipated yet dreaded email.  The review went quicker than expected.  This is a good thing, right?  No!  It couldn't be.  I mean, what if they hate it.  They'd simply rush through it.  Or maybe pitch it aside.  Or worse yet, give it a terrible review.  

After my breathing returned to normal and my cursor finger relaxed enough to open the email, I focused on the text before me.  There it was.  That red, screaming Monster Librarian logo with a pair of evil eyes staring back at me.  I began to read.  Suddenly, the sweat under my armpits began to evaporate.  A smile curled the corners of my mouth.  THEY LIKED IT.  Better yet, they HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.  They said things like "fast-paced, likeable characters, hell of a twist ending."

Whew.  I can breath again.  Thank you, Monster Librarian.  Thankyouverymuch.  What's that?  You'd like to read the review.  Okay.  Click the link and you'll be whisked away in no time:  http://www.monsterlibrarian.com/ghostsya.htm#The_Epitaph_Of_Jonas_Barloff
