Wise Counsel
Before Lee Stringer's first book?Grand Central Winter?came out in 1998, his publisher, as most all publishers do, sent copies of the galleys around to other established and well-known writers, in the hopes of getting a blurb or two to slap on the back cover. It's a peculiar and very contrived activity, this blurbage, but it's all just a given part of the publishing game these days.
