How to get the endorsement of a life time!

Has this ever happened before? Off the top of my heard I cannot remember this ever being the case but I may well be wrong. I stand corrected if that is the case. What you may well ask am I talking about?

Patricia Cornwell the best selling crime writer has given debut author Philipp Meyer a big push up the ladder by ingeniously endorsing his debut novel America Rust in her latest Kay Scarpetta novel Scarpetta. Could this be a co-incidence or are there other forces at work here? While Cornwell and Meyer are published by two different publishing houses they do share something in common and that is an agent, Esther Newberg of International Creative Management.

Phillipp Meyer’s book is not due for publication until next month. It will be interesting to see what effect Ms Cornwell’s endorsement has on his sales!
