Lunatics and Lycanthropy is now for sale
A Kindle version of my 2010 NaNoWriMo novel, Lunatics and Lycanthropy, is now available for download on Amazon.com for $2.99. Lunatics and Lycanthropy is similar to Norfanger Plantation in that it is also a teen paranormal romance that borrows the plot of a Jane Austen novel, in this instance, Pride and Prejudice. From the back of the book:
Like Elizabeth Bennet, the heroine of Pride and Prejudice, Savannah Benton struggles with the pressures of a hypochondriac mother, a disinterested father, and four very silly sisters, not to mention the unsolicited affections of the rude and arrogant Darcy Fitz. But in this modern, young adult adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel, the female protagonist has one more difficulty to face: the possibility that werewolves might be real, and for all she knows, wearing the faces of those she considers her friends.
Set in a rural Georgia town, Lunatics and Lycanthropy is a hilarious spoof of the teen paranormal romance genre that has recently become so wildly popular. It will keep you laughing, but it will also keep you guessing. With twists and turns throughout and an unreliable and increasingly suspicious narrator, the mystery of who might or might not be a werewolf lingers until the very last page.
You can find the Kindle version here.
I am also working on getting a paperback copy up for sale as well. I receive my proof copy in the mail yesterday, and was not satisfied with the current result. Some of the pages I wanted to be right-facing were left-facing, etc., so I will be ordering another proof and starting the process over again. It's frustrating, but such is the world of self-publishing. Hopefully I can have it up for sale by the end of the month.
