I've already mentioned what a great book Vicki Hendricks's Cruel Poetry is. A stunning noir novel with rich characters, a compelling story and steamy poke poke. If you're planning to buy it (and you should) then try this: purchase it from Amazon.com on May 25th. Word on the street is that even a modest number of purchases on the same day will do nice things to the Amazon ranking. As you know authors often struggle with ways to get the word out and promote their books. I know I'm always trying to think of new ways. So let's give this a try. And you won't be sorry. It's a hell of a novel.
