Writing Can Be Murder

Psychic discounts, etc.

I just read “Unwound” by Jonathan Baine (which has nothing to do with psychics or discounts). Kudos to the marketing genius who wrote the back cover copy. They did an excellent job. They hooked me. I read it.

I was pissed by the end of the book because the back cover copy barely resembled the book.  I was pissed because the “twist” at the end was a cheat. Needless to say, this is not going on my recommended read list. (Read Allison Brennan’s “Speak No Evil” for a good read.)

Now stick with me while I change subjects.

The other day I drove past a psychic’s office which had a huge sign out front offering, “15% Holiday Discount”. 

It cracked me up.

Maybe next time I should consult a psychic about what book I should read….

  1. Ooh, maybe I can use the psychic discount to help me shake a recurring song from my head. Do they do that? 😉
