Amazon doing the Big Brother thing...

Tuesday, May 16, 2006

I don't even remember buying the P.B Ryan book off of Amazon. I could have sworn I bought it in store at Chapter-Indigo.

Anywhoo.... I got this email in my inbox:

"Dear Customer,

We've noticed that customers who have purchased books by P. B. Ryan often purchased books by Madeleine E. Robins. For this reason you might like to know that Madeleine E. Robins's newest book, Petty Treason (Sarah Tolerance), will be released in paperback on May 30, 2006. You can pre-order your copy by following the link below"

So I check it out:

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Fallen Woman of good family must, soon or late, descend to whoredom."

Editorial Reviews:


"Sarah may be a 'Fallen Woman,' but she's also clever, resourceful and highly capable with a sword. She is so well realized that we accept the conceit of a female sleuth—a liberated Elizabeth Bennett, as it were—who fences, wears men's clothing and lives behind her aunt's brothel. [A] most pleasing and agreeable series."--Publishers Weekly on Petty Treason

“Madeleine Robins writes with rare conviction.”—The New York Times

“An action-packed, suspense-filled read, complete with a 19th-century heroine reminiscent of the present day Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”--Romantic Times

“Sarah is a fascinating heroine, and Robins surrounds her with equally intriguing secondary characters. Politics, deception, danger, and a bit of romance all come together beautifully in this superb debut.”—Booklist on Point of Honour

"Sarah Tolerance is smart, beautiful, resourceful, tough, and totally believable and real. Murder, prostitution, blackmail, and action are woven perfectly into this tale. I will certainly read the next episode in this series. I'd do so tomorrow if I had it." --Stuart M. Kaminsky, bestselling author of the Toby Peters and Inspector Rostnikov novels on Point of Honour

"Self-reliant, gutsy, and forthright at a time when women weren't supposed to be any of those things, Sarah Tolerance is a breath of fresh air. I loved Point of Honour." --Barbara D'Amato, author of Authorized Personnel Only on Point of Honour

"An elegant Regency romance with an edge and a point." --Sarah Smith, author of The Vanished Child on Point of Honour

Wow. Big Brother really does know me. *gulp* Cause you can bet your sweet bippy, I'll be at the store with bells on to buy this one. :-P

I wouldn't normally pick up a book with that cover, but this one definitely sounds interesting. Please let me know what you think of it.

It's not released (here in Canada) yet. What's more this is a second book, and the paperback version isn't available here, either. I'd have to order if from Amazon. Annnnnd, lol, if that wasn't bad enough, in checking out her backlist I came across another book by her--Stone somethingortheother--a futuristic, that looked pretty good too. Also, not available here. waaaah. Think I'll see if it's at the library.
