New blurbs

My humble tome just got two new endorsements:

"A portrait of people in a small town so intimate that it feels like you are under the covers with them. Like Tom Perrotta's Little Children, Whitlock examines the horror and grace of suburban life." – Heather O'Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals

"With this debut novel, Whitlock demonstrates a keen insight into the hearts of those living lives of quiet desperation, and deeper, into the fundamental truths of the human soul." – Robert J. Wiersema, author of Before I Wake

Also, the cover is almost done, and it looks fanfuckingtastic. It's been such a long haul with this thing, but all this has got me excited again. By tomorrow, I'm sure I'll be back to wishing the book would just die already, but for now, all is well.

Jesus, did I really write that? Was I high?

I assumed you were, so there'll be an asterisk next to it on the cover, just like on Barry Bonds's home run record.

Perfect. Can't ask for anything more.

(Glad you took that in the spirit it was intended, by the way...)

It's okay, I'm a big fan of quiet desperation.
