Kirkus reviewed Generation Dead today and they gave it a--*gulp*--starred review. This is sort of like having a celebrity chef asking for seconds of the appetizer you made or Simon Cowell saying that you "might do well in this competition".
You can find a tease of the review here but only Kirkus subscribers can read the whole thing. Here's a quote I have to share, though: "Stephenie Meyer meets John Green in debut author Waters’s wry, original supernatural romance, which blends sensitivity and deadpan humor to reflect a culture clash on both sides of the living spectrum." (Kirkus, April 1, 2008)
Whooooo, I've got the chills. It was a thrill to be named in such company as Ms. Meyer and Mr. Green. And I love being a wry guy.
P.S. This is not an April Fool's hoax.
