Those of us who are trying what might be a new trend of truth in advertising are tweaking the idea of a list in different ways. I find it the perfect compliment to my mission statement.
My goal as an author is to give good value. I expect to provide my readers with six to eight hours of amusement, a couple of really good laughs, a romantic frisson or two from the sensual scenes, a thoroughly satisfying Happy Ever After, and something to think--or talk-- about when the book is finished. And possibly some useful information
ELEVEN REASONS NOT TO READ KNIGHT'S FORK
11. Disrespectful words such as tallywacker and joystick are used with reference to male body parts
10. It's long. (Not the tallywacker... well, it is, but I meant the book). Knight's Fork has 340 pages, and most new Chapters do not begin on a fresh page.
9. It has a Prologue and an Epilogue. That's two beginnings, and two endings!
8. It's going to take about eight hours to read.
7. The hero is a 28 year old virgin and proud of it. (He's also ruthless with a weapon of a different sort).
6. The heroine is locked in a chastity belt, and she doesn't have a key.
5. The family tree is so complicated they needed to spread it over two pages.
4. If you read in bed, your significant other might be disturbed by your giggles and snorts.
3. The F- word is used, but only by villains, and only in conversation.
2. If you read it in public, someone may ask why the naked man on the cover is lying in a puddle
1. If you don't read every paragraph, you may ask yourself why the naked man is lying in a puddle
If the above list has not deterred you, please look for Knight's Fork at this convenient location
