A writer to watch!!
I picked this book up thinking it sounded interesting and wanted to try a new author. I was absolutely enthralled!! Ginsberg's writing style is great and the story is super! There will certainly be comparisons to Devil Wears Prada because it involves a brassy boss in the publishing world. Story takes place within the walls of a very busy literary agency. If you are a bibliophile , you will love this behind the scenes look into the cut throat world of publishing! I have now purchased all of Debra Ginsberg's books and I am shocked she is not on every best seller list yet! Great writer!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great new idea
This story is an interesting new concept. Not a thriller but interesting enough to have me reading it an entire day (doesn't happen often with me). Great escape book and a great look into how you really do not know someone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I picked up this book because it was a recommendation at a local independent bookseller and was not disappointed. The characters are outstanding and the protagonist is endearing. It's a fun read that I was sorry had to end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Another great read from a very talented writer.
Having read all of Ms. Ginsberg's previous books, all memoirs. I was quite enchanted by her latest, her first foray into fiction. It's a suspense novel that is loaded with Ginsberg's trademark humor. She keeps the pace moving and the reader guessing, as Angel Robinson, a new employee at the Lucy Fiamma literary agency, begins reading a manuscript that eerily begins to reflect her own life. Angel likes what she initially reads of this rough manuscript, which comes in through the mail, and encourages the author G, short for Great American Novelist (as the authors pens himself), to continue submitting a few chapters at a time. As she reads more and more of the proposed book, she finds it closely resembling her own life. Ginsberg uses this novel within a novel to build the suspense. Is the author some disgruntled, rejected author out to get Angel, or is it someone in the office watching her too closely? The suspense builds as bad things begin to happen to G's protagonist. Is Angel in danger? How will it all end? The author keeps you on the edge of your seat and you'll love the insider's look at the how books get published and howl with laughter as you see society reflected in Ginsberg's very real look at the publishing industry.Was this review helpful?

A MUST READ
I'm one of those readers who doesnt want too much information about a book before I read it. Many times just the title can convince me to give it a shot. That was what prompted me to purchase BLIND SUBMISSION. From the first page you are drawn into the world of publishing agents and its pages are filled with dynanmic characters and a story that draws you quickly from page to page. I am an avid mystery reader and I can't reccomend this book enough. I will anxiously be awaiting Ms. Ginsbergs next endeavor.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
