Year End Books Lists

Hi friends,

It’s that time of year again, when places like the New York Times publish their “100 Notable Books of 2013”:  100 Notable Books of 2013 – NYTimes.com

I’m always interested to see what makes the list. But then I sigh. And frown.

No little presses. No indie guys or gals. (Or so obviously few).

So, you can imagine how thrilled I am when I see Microtones added to any year end book list! Just to know your work has been read, or appreciated, is of significant value. And also to be included with the likes of Hosseini, Sartre, and George Saunders makes me, well, a little giddy.

Thanks, Alex Pruteanu. I enjoyed reading “Gears,” your exceptional collection of short stories ( Gears: A Collectionas well as Short Lean Cuts: A Novella. Both were fascinating reads! And here is Alex’s list of his year end selections:

2013: Yearly Book Round Up | (S)wine: Fiction…Sometimes

As Alex mentioned, the ratings (stars) mentioned on Goodreads do help to get attention for one’s book. So, if you have read Microtones, please feel free to give stars, or a review. That would be a wonderful holiday gift from my friends. On behalf of Cervena Barva Press, and Microtones, thanks for making 2013 a stellar year!
