Amazon has picked Tell No Lie, We Watched Her Die…

…for one of its new marketing programs. Just go to the book link below and you’ll see a GREEN BOX in the right-hand column that says “Read first chapter free.” Click that and you’ll get said chapter on your PC, Mac, Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Droid, Blackberry—pretty much anything outside of chisel-ready stone. The chapter will appear in a Kindle-like window complete with Kindle-like navigation. There’s even a button that allows you (if I may be so bold) to buy the complete book.

Give it a shot. It’ll only take a couple of minutes of your time to read.  You have nothing to lose—and you might gain a few laughs at my expense.  Many thanks.

TELL NO LIE, WE WATCHED HER DIE

The lit-crit take: A character-driven thriller, centering on themes of celebrity, addiction and survival.

The pure plot pitch: The sex tape of a famous actress suddenly turns up on the internet, showing her on the last night of her life. The full version is being offered for sale, and the reason for its high price goes way beyond celeb voyeurism. The video also contains a clue to who killed her. That’s why everyone is—literally—dying to see it.

About Richard Sanders

I worked as an Executive Editor at Entertainment Weekly for 11 years and (in two separate stints) at People magazine and people.com for 12 years. I often speak to young journalists and try to use myself as an example for inspiration—a guy who spent time in jail, rehab and a psych ward and somehow went on to become a successful editor at Time Inc. and managed to stay sane and alive. I’ve tried to reflect those experiences in my books. View all posts by Richard Sanders
