Writer's Digest frequently introduces debut authors with a quick blurb and link. Fine and good.
However, on the third entry down of their "guide to literary agents" blog they have a vanity published thriller writer. He has no reviews. No agent. On Amazon he hasn't chosen to allow you to preview any of his pages. And he has one review in the world (his?)
How can they do that? In my mind it's pretty deceptive. Are they a legitimate site?
The author's blurb:
Is a man a serial killer if he only kills the burglars who break into his home? And what if one of them is the man who had murdered the homeowner s wife and was returning to kill him?
After he avenges his wife s murder the bodies of all the burglars are discovered in Walter Buczyno s crawlspace and he becomes a Wanted Man on the run. While Riehle and Capparelli are investigating the Buczyno case Riehle watches a family friend descend into madness and his life goes horribly wrong.
ONE MAN'S CASTLE is a suspense thriller that keeps the reader turning the pages until the dramatic conclusion when all forces collide nothing is what it seems and lives are changed forever.
