Russian term or phrase: упоминание в газете
В контексте:

Автор сообщает о возможной публикации о его книге в газете. Мне нужно ответить как-то так: "упоминание в газете звучит замечательно!". Я предпологаю, что это должно звучать так на англ:
Mentioning in the [NAME OF THE NEWSPAPER] sounds great!

Правильно?
marie
a mention
Explanation:
"Mentioning" is OK but I think using the noun is the way we would more likely do it:
"a mention in the papers".

  -> Thank you. I think "a notice" implies something paid for. A mention is just that, something the paper itself puts in as news- or comment-worthy.
