  1. Greetings,

    I am managing e-promotion for the new novel, Nine Inch Bride, literary fiction set in the near future in which a uniquely talented revolutionary pairs up with a fallen Wall Street analyst to fuel a bonfire of American political culture. Your site came up in a search for bloggers interested in the novel’s primary themes.

    We thank you for the Piazza della Carina and Bill the Butcher blogs and invite you to download a complimentary copy in pre-publication release at nineinchbride.com. Short and long book descriptions, excerpts, reviews and comments are also available there, along with book downloads (and e-readers) in your choice of format.

    We’d be keenly interested in your impressions, and would appreciate a review or comment on your site or ours.

    Sincerely,

    James Lesni
    Web Manager
