"The Unincorporated Woman"

Dani Kollin lives in Los Angeles, California and Eytan Kollin lives in Pasadena, California. They are brothers, and The Unincorporated Woman is their third novel. Their first novel, The Unincorporated Man, won the 2009 Prometheus Award for best novel.

Dani Kollin applied the Page 69 Test to The Unincorporated Woman and reported the following:
Page 69 would land the reader in the middle of a kidnapping attempt. It’s certainly representative of the book’s intrigue but not its heart which ultimately asks the question, what price freedom?. Having said that, it’s clear that something unsavory has just happened and IMO the reader would be inclined to turn the page just to see if the mission gets pulled off successfully.

Keep in mind; I’m an advertising copywriter by trade so I look at every single page of every single one of our books as if they’re each a single-page print ad--i.e., the text needs to flow and the content needs to pull you effortlessly along.
