AP: Mistress of the Revolution could be one of the best reads of the year!

Fireworks again!

Here it is, hot off the wire. Associated Press, the nationwide news agency, has just issued a review of Mistress of the Revolution. Getting reviewed by AP is in itself a major success: it means that the publication of my novel is deemed newsworthy.

But wait, there is more! Here’s what AP says: In terms of
entertainment value, “Mistress of the Revolution” holds up well
against best-selling historical novels such as Tracy Chevalier’s “Girl
With a Pearl Earring” and Philippa Gregory’s “The Other Boleyn
Girl…” This is definitely a contender
for one of the best reads of the year.

Wow! This wonderful, amazing, fantastic review has already been picked up by the San Francisco Chronicle.

What can I say? My head is spinning…

It will take me a while to recover my wits, but in the meantime, thank you, AP and San Francisco Chronicle!

    Thank you so much! I am traveling a lot in Europe these days. Why don’t you send me a private email so we can figure out the logistics?

  2. Jessica Mebane says:

    I read at least one or two Historical Novels a week; yours is the best of any year. May I send a copy for autograph? “I am buried alive in the countryside”, to borrow a phrase from your Emilie.
