No more Kirkus reviews

Sad news today. Kirkus Reviews is closing up shop. Parent Nielsen is closing the trade magazine, which has become an institution in publishing, as well as Editor & Publisher.

For all aspiring authors who have for years read about debuting books and their Kirkus reviews, they won’t have the opportunity to get a Kirkus review of their own. The cost of progress? I don’t know.

Thank you to the staff of the magazine for all they have done for authors over the years.
