Praise For My Books
“If Marchini releases a full length novel I’ll definitely be buying it as I think it will be a read to rival Helen Fielding.”
“Pub Speak aims to help authors keep up to date on publishing terms and keep you from getting overwhelmed!
I highly recommend you add Pub Speak to your writing resources!”
I read this story and my heart hurt and my stomach got those little butterflies of discovery and I loved everything about it. I want more books like this one. I want more short stories like this one. Beautiful and anything but simple, this story touched me and hit all the right notes.
“Pub Speak is the perfect handbook for those who need to navigate the publishing business. Whether you are a new author or just someone who wants to understand publishing, this dictionary is a great source for terms used in the industry.”
An indie short story worth checking out
The fact that a 6,000 word story has a flipping subplot should be an indication that Marchini has a knack for story-telling.
I hope this is the first of many forays that Marchini takes into Brig’s life. I would happily read an entire novel set in the music-controlled world she lives in.
“I also think the concept of the tickets is a stroke of genius. There have been a lot of stories about popularity written for this age group, but the idea of an actual ticketing system is a clever – and cruel – way to highlight who is hot and who is not. The ticketing system gave the author a lot of interesting scenarios to play with, and brought new life to an often overused topic.”
