A Starred Kirkus Review!

I am thrilled with this review from Kirkus, particularly because the reviewer really saw what I was trying to do with An Untamed State. You can read the whole thing here but this is my favorite part:
Among the strongest achievements of this novel is that Mireille’s story feels complete and whole while emphasizing its essential brokenness. A cutting and resonant debut.

    1. Is it just me or is anyone else scared about the future? Especially since Bernanke is in front of congress this morning telling them we need a “fiscal stimulus package” right now.It might be the fact that I am a little young, 28, and haven’t been entrenched in a recession in the past, 2000-2002 was the closet but I was fresh out of college. So are we in for it?I have a stable job, a mortage and debt I can pay on one salary, but I am fearing something bad or am I being irrational and this will just be like the past?

    2. This comment is hidden to you.Hi Isidro,Yeah I was leaning that way too. I’ve just got the programmer doing something for PLAhh.com members (a really nice plugin), and as soon as he’s done I’ll get him to make the last couple of changes to the Share Your Purchase plugin and it’s out. Then we’ll make that one nice little change I want to do it that *should* help get people to share. I hope. -Frank  •    •  This comment is hidden to all users except to its author!

  1. Read it in one sitting, couldn’t stop, rocked my world, all I could do after I completed it was nothing. And then I cleaned my home for hours, while thinking, and realizing that no one mentions that this is also a love story by someone who knows what love is. A sad horrible but viscerally affecting love story.
    thank you
