Review

****MARSOCIAL AUTHOR OF THE YEAR 2013 COMPETITION FINALIST****
  "I absolutely love the premise of the story and I was very much immersed in it from start to finish. On the whole, a delightful and stimulating read. If you love conspiracy theories, this is definitely a story for you to ponder on."- Lit Amri for Reader's Favorite

"The story is an interestingone, and it makes you think about the recent developments in the world. 
 'When the Chips are Down,'functions exactly as the author wants it to, as a chilling science fictionthriller that will cause you to keep the pages turning." 
- Red City Review

There are a lot of dystopian novels, but When the Chips Are Down gives the genre a new a fresh look. This book reminds me of a few of my personal favorites; 1984 and Radical Evolution.Two thumbs up for Anne Rasico for creating such an intense story with lovable characters.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

(1981-) Anne Rasico (AKA Anne Joyce) was born in a small town in Indiana. She composed short stories and comic books as a child and began writing poetry at the age of thirteen. In 1998 she received an Honorable Mention for Literary Excellence for her poem "She Didn't Come Home." She attended business school and made the Dean’s List for three consecutive years, putting her love for writing on the back burner. It wasn’t until her mid-twenties that a political post on social networking rekindled her literary flame that has since become a bonfire

In 2013 her novella “When the Chips Are Down” was named a Finalist in the MARSocial Author of the Year Contest. When she is not writing, thinking about writing, or going insane from writing she enjoys camping, fishing and swimming. She is mother to three extremely spoiled cats. Crazy cat lady? Probably
