Reviews for adventure mystery novel Paperback Writer:

From Publishers Weekly: “In this fresh contribution to the CBA market, Bly, the prolific, Christy Award-winning author of series westerns, pens an amusing parody of the proverbial dime-store paperback novel … a funny, enjoyable romp for CBA fiction readers.”

Stephen Bly weaves a thrilling tale of suspense … Just when you think you’ve figured out what’s real — you realize that Bly has you right where he wants you.” — Clay Jacobsen,, Novels That Challenge Your Spirit, author of Interview with the Devil, Circle of Seven and The Lasko Interview

Paperback Writer gives you a perfect picture of the confusing labyrinthine inner world of a novelist. It’s a convoluted world, and endless series of twisty little passages, where reality melds seamlessly into unreality, where fictitious characters are just as real as normal people but twice as interesting…Enjoy the ride!” — Randall ‘Randy’ Ingermanson,, physicist and geek suspense novelist, author of Oxygen, etc. Also, “the Snowflake Guy,” America’s Mad Professor of Fiction Writing:
