STAY CRAZY Review Roundup!

I am not a very good blogger, and I'm only barely a better Twitterer. However, I have been getting some pretty great reviews of Stay Crazy, out RIGHT NOW from Apex Publications, and I might as well share them on Ye Olde Blog, for the three people who might follow me here and not on Twitter or FB. Some highlights:

"We really need more stories like this. Not just in the sense of how it deals with mental illness, but which acknowledge struggles that don’t end cleanly or may not end at all after the big ugly has been banished beyond our realms, while, at the same time, showing us people coming to realize this and accepting it as part of their life while finding value in the small, daily victories." --Cemetery Dance Online

"Stay Crazy was a blast to read. This is a tale where “crazy” runs amok, not only in the title, but in just about every aspect of the story. If you’ve ever felt just the slightest bit crazy yourself, then this book is for you." --Books, Bones & Buffy

"Stay Crazy treads the common ground between science fiction, horror, and fantasy. It taps a common plot thread, the gap between the fantastical and the insane, but doesn’t scruple to twist convention for its own purpose. The persistent tragic undercurrent to both the setting and the characters keeps it grounded in a grim reality, without being overwhelmed by despair. That alone, in my estimation, makes it well worth a read." --Hazel Gold (mild spoilers)

"What I liked about the book is that the take feels so genuine. Satifka isn’t trying to reach some fundamental of mental illness that we have to tease out or extrapolate. She’s writing about one condition that she has clearly done her homework on, and has built a character and story around. And once things start moving, it becomes a nail-biter pretty quickly."
 --Alligators & Aneurysms

So yeah, buy a copy of Stay Crazy, wherever fine books are sold! Which now includes the Portland independent bookstores Another Read Through and Annie Bloom's Books! Or get your local library to order it for you! It's all good.

  3. Yet while normal and understandable, this is also something that's addressable. (Not entirely fixable, of course, but at least addressable.) But facts aren't the way to do it -- simply getting better at announcing the who, what, where, and when of things won't really convey the flavor of this lively place. For that you need stories.

  4. I am sure that you have heard the following poem entitled "Don't Quit": “When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low, and the debts are high, and you want to smile, but you have to sigh, when care is pressing you down a bit- Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, as every one of us sometimes learns, and many a fellow turn about When he might have won had he stuck it out.
