Jeffery Deaver is one of my favorite authors, ever. I've read every single one of his books and I'm a huge, huge fan of his Lincoln Rhyme series. And I can't wait for CARTE BLANCHE to be released this summer, which is the newest "007" novel (yes, Ian Fleming Productions chose him to write the next James Bond book!).
So when my editor asked me a few months back to compile a wish list of authors I'd love to see blurb my book, of course he was at the top of the list. That was a no brainer.
But obviously as a new author, you don't expect to get everything you wish for. You certainly don't expect someone like Jeffery Deaver to find the time to read your book. And you most definitely don't expect him to like it. You hope, is all. You hope hope hope.
But, wonder of wonders, he read CREEP. And he liked it! And he offered a quote! And without further ado, here it is:
Jennifer Hillier's Creep is top-of-the-line thriller writing. You better call in sick, because you're not going anywhere until you finish reading. Oh, and you might want to lock the door too. Just to be safe.
--Jeffery Deaver, author of Carte Blanche
I just died and went to heaven. Is this really happening?
