QBR News/Announcements

November 3, 2011

Please look for new and more frequent reviews coming soon. I will be graduating from graduate school next month December 17, 2011, so the reviews will be coming back. The other reviews have all been placed on Amazon.com which are current. I look forward to growing my reviews here and welcome everyone to continue to check back often.

I am looking forward to reading all the piles of books I have not had the chance to read due to graduate school.

Thank you to all of our readers for your support and kind words.

The Holiday Season is upon us, it is time to buy our loved ones gifts, why not buy the perfect gift, a good book in which to enjoy while sitting by the fire place. Please look through our reviews there are so many great books that we have been reviewing lately that would make a perfect gift for Christmas.

Well here we are in the middle of summer and posting of reviews have slowed, it is sad that with all the reviewers we have counted on over the past few years take advantage of requesting books and not providing a review.  I will begin reviewing the books I currently have on hand and will be placing as many reviews as possible after August 8, 2009.  With graduate school leaves little time for other things, working full time and attending graduate school leave all thinks of passion and joy to rest.  School will be out August 8 through August 29 and over that 21 days I will try to get things rolling again. Also during this period I will try to recruit and retain some honest reviewers who will actually provide a review.  This is frustrating not only for us, but for you who are interested in reading the reviews and those who actually submitted the books to be reviewed. Please bare with us and we will be getting as many reviews out in a quick period of time.

If anyone is willing to sign up to review for us, please email us your details with a sample review and we will be glad to send a book to monitor turn around time and if all goes according to plan, we will then send more, once those are in, we will continue the process until the point in time when the reviews stop then we would request those books back to send to someone else to get the job done.  Thank you, QBR.

Here is the advance praise PANIC ATTACK…

“Panic Attack is the ultimate page turner — a thriller that brilliantly blends psychological and physical suspense. It’s rare that you get either one in a book, but Jason Starr delivers them both in spades.”
Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Brass Verdict

“Fast-moving, psychologically astute, and 100 percent chilling.”
Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of The Dark Tide
“Panic Attack is that rare thing — a novel that manages to be both flat-out terrifying and completely brilliant. Jason Starr’s prose is as taut, vicious, relentless and elegant as a jewelled hand tightening around your throat. Even as it has you gasping, you can’t help but appreciate the grip. If there is such a thing as the perfect thriller, Starr has just written it. The ending alone will have you breathing in paper bags for a week.”
Jerry Stahl, New York Times bestselling author of Permanent Midnight and Pain Killers

If you Twitter or have a blog, it would be great if you can share this information about the free PANIC ATTACK advance electronic edition download, and share the link with your readers/followers.You can also follow my Twittering at jasonstarrbooks or friend me on facebook and/or My Space.

“THE FOLLOWER is Jason Starr’s masterpiece.” Bret Easton Ellis

“Extremely chilling.” The New York Times

“Crackling hot.”Page Six, The New York Post
