Reviewed by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite

In a fun, humorous and engaging read that will have special appeal for readers who hold a secret dream of writing a book some day, Booked to Death: An Author's Guide to Publishing and Murder by author PJ Campbell is a great romp through some desperate attempts to get published. Follow publishing executive MT Evans and shallow, aspiring author Sherry Cherelle as they cook up a plan that they feel will enable them to become famous in the publishing world. But when they try to pull off their plan, it ends up so full of criminal high jinks and misstep after misstep that is seems unlikely they'll gain much except perhaps prison time. Will the duo ever achieve their dreams? And if so, at what cost? You'll have to read the book to find out!

I so, so enjoyed Booked to Death: An Author's Guide to Publishing and Murder. Author PJ Campbell has done a simply fantastic job in creating a fun and fast paced story that will have readers laughing at loud, and at times on the edge of their seats. Many readers who might have thought longingly of becoming a successful published author will also enjoy this story that shows the lengths that these characters are willing to go to do just that. Any reader who loves a fun read or just a great work of fiction should definitely read Booked to Death: An Author's Guide to Publishing and Murder. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more from the talented author PJ Campbell as soon as possible!
