Not one to be shy, Martha Egan has happily publicized her Papalote Press titles in print, radio, and TV interviews. Reviews are vital for the success of a book—especially one from a tiny press like Papalote. Our books have been reviewed with high praise by newspapers, magazines, and online bloggers.
Newspaper and magazine reviews include The Albuquerque Journal, The Green Bay Press Gazette, The Santa Fe Reporter, which selected La Ranfla in “SFR Picks” and both The Santa Fe New Mexican/Pasatiempo and The Corrales Comment; The Santa Fean Magazine; Albuquerque; The Magazine; and Sky Sanchez of The San Francisco Book Review.
Online, www.jimagnew.com; La Bloga (labloga.blogspot.com); Peace Corps Writers; Midwest Book Review; and Goodreads, have reviewed our books.
And, of course, Amazon.
