You really messed up your formatting, shanebarry. It was not me who wrote about Piggydee "sh***ing on white men" (although I'd agree that is the kind of thing she'd do).

I wrote a novel and had it on Amazon for years. It pretty much sucked but it felt great to get it out of my head. it actually sold a few copies. literaly a few.  I praise you for your effort. The writing style is like nails on a chalk board for me though. So stilted with SO much extraneous information. I have never read the books others are saying you pulled your style from.....but I now know who to avoid.  And reading an asian accent is just as bad as hearing someone attempt one.....it just feels racist somehow.  Not my cup tea at all.

But major kudos to you for putting it out there and writing the damn thing.

Nice cautionary tale for people considering becoming long-termers married to Koreans.

The last expat who wrote a book about Korea and asked me to read it ended up taking a job in China and throwing himself off of a tall building into oblivion.

So, with all due respect to S.M., I'm hesitant here...
