My own debut novel (novella) JIMMIETOWN, KS has been a hit (at least among my friends and relatives) and netted about $60 in commissions in May. Wow! Who would think? My cousin’s review was particularly compelling: 

Just finished “Jimmietown” …It’s a homer!   Eager, now to re-read. It’s wonderful! Jenny is annespecially strong fully-formed character reminiscent of Scout in TKAM. She’s a better fit, though, to the midwestern mileau where you grew up and which you colorfully capture. I remember visiting you there where the slighly “southern” accents were exotic to the ears of your northern cousin Others in an exceptionally lengthy list of characters for a short novel (are you calling it a novella?) are artfully drawn as well. Your book is ripe for a sequel or prequel – “Jimmietown 2.” JKJ
