Amazon has just released the newly revised Sacrifice, which is now available in the Kindle Bookstore for a buck. I rewrote the prologue and went thru the entire novel, smoothing out prose and reconciling story glitches -- stuff I should have caught in the first published draft and am now embarrassed I didn't. I wanted to put this on a weeklong promotion of free downloads to celebrate the new version, but Amazon says I must wait until Feb. 17. Anyone who paid for the crummy pre-revised version can download the new sleek one free during the promotional week next month. Also, I am in the process of putting out a paperback edition thru CreateSpace.
Here's the book description I finally settled on:
Pink Pinkerton, assigned to develop a better erectile dysfunction remedy, has done his employer one better. In a secret underground lab near Washington, D.C., Pink concocted a formula that not only brings bigger smiles to men and women alike but makes them better citizens. So, a Nobel prize for Pink, you'd think. Maybe, if he survives the attempts to kill him and destroy his formula before it spreads. Those who want him dead fear his miracle potion, Vulcana, will ruin the economy by making people so happy and enlightened they'll quit spending money on things they don't need. After his beautiful lab partner, Gladys Alabi, disappears, Pink hits the road to find her and ends up on the run from shadowy mercenaries. Friends assisting him include a Secret Service agent and a former White House official. A chance alliance with an Internet hacker ring keeps them one step ahead of the killers and helps Pink narrow the search for his enemy. But the closer he seems to get, the more familiar the terrain becomes.
P.S. Anyone who reads Sacrifice and likes it is invited to say something nice about it in Amazon's "customer review" section. If you find it to be the worst book you ever read, well, hey, your viewpoint can be entered there, too.
