At Last I Know Amazon Cares . . .

15 Apr

I awakened this morning to find an email from Amazon in my inbox. I was shocked to discover that it was about my new book, Lady Grace. They were promoting my book! For free! I didn’t even know about it!

I must have hit some critical mass for Amazon to notice me. I wanted to share the event with the entire universe, or as much as I could reach. So here it is, the text of Amazon’s pitch: (Unfortunately, the wonderful Amazon logo didn’t copy. Neither did the cool hot links, buy button going to Lady Grace, or any of that.) But here it is: proof that Amazon cares.

Lady Grace: A Thrilling Adventure Wrapped in the Embrace of Epic Love. In the absence of official links from Amazon, I’ll give you the cover here. It was in the Buy button on the actual email.

Will Duane, Founder and CEO of Numenon. Is He Real?

Q. Why do you think people would want to read the Bloodsong Series?

A. For the pervasive aura of sexuality, certainly. The for everything else––this is a high-energy textbook about psychology, business, Native American history and spirituality, and tantric yoga. All in one sweet, very readable package.

Q. How close are your characters to real life people?

A. I know people who are as messed up as my characters and who have achieved as much. Not too many, though. My characters have no counterparts in real life. Certainly, my dad, who was a very successful businessman, shows up in parts of Will, as do famous rich people, and people I’d read about in psychopathology books. But my characters are truly fictional. I made them up.
