Kirkus Praises Two TPC Books; “The King of Average” Receives Starred Review

King of Average Kirkus Star

Kirkus, the reputable book review site, has recently awarded a starred review to The King of Average by Gary Schwartz (Booktrope, 2015) which was proofread by Tricia Parker. The King of Average tells the hilarious story of James, a typical 11-year-old, as he journeys through the Kingdom of Average—where he discovers he might not be so mediocre after all.

Kirkus also had high praise for Death of a Messenger: A Koa Kane Hawaiian Mystery (Langdon Street Press) , a police procedural by debut author Robert McCaw, developmentally edited by Tricia Parker. According to Kirkus, the work “masterly displays a finely balanced mixture of detective work, local color, and interpersonal melodrama.”

TPC congratulates both authors for their fine work and positive reviews!
