I’ve just been informed that Pub­lish­ers Week­ly has select­ed The Noth­ing With­in for a book review.

Book­Life is the divi­sion of Pub­lish­ers Week­ly ded­i­cat­ed to books by inde­pen­dent pub­lish­ers. As part of their ser­vice, they select a rel­a­tive­ly small num­ber of inde­pen­dent­ly-pub­lished books for review in Pub­lish­ers Week­ly mag­a­zine. Pub­lish­ers Week­ly is one of the indus­try’s most influ­en­tial book review sources, pub­lished con­tin­u­ous­ly since 1872.

There are two enor­mous caveats:

  1. It might not appear in the mag­a­zine. Their mes­sages says, “Because your project has been select­ed for a Pub­lish­ers Week­ly review, it will most like­ly be reviewed in Pub­lish­ers Week­ly. How­ev­er we can­not guar­an­tee your book will actu­al­ly receive a review; in some rare cas­es, a book or project select­ed for review does not actu­al­ly receive a pub­lished review.”
  2. They might hate it. While feed­back from oth­er edi­to­r­i­al reviews has been pos­i­tive so far, there’s no guar­an­tee Pub­lish­ers Week­ly will like it. But you know what? Either way, I’m tick­led that they’ve decid­ed to spend the time review­ing my book. Even if it’s not pos­i­tive, I plan to learn from it.
