This Wicked Gift

Want to read This Wicked Gift, my RITA-finaling novella, but haven’t yet?

40% of it is available on Google Books right now. (Initially I thought it was more, but I somehow missed that it skipped nearly the last half of the book.)

Yes, you’ll be missing most of the first half of the novella, including a handful of pages taken at random from bits and pieces throughout which really, really drives me nuts–did they have to take out the page that has the moment of penetration, for instance? Or the bit where they delete the page that tells you what it is Lavinia lost, that she needs found?

So think of it as an extended excerpt, annoyingly missing vital pages. If you really want those pages (and you know you do) you can get the full book for $3.89 for Kindle or Nook.

  1. *shocked laugh* Really? They took out the heart of the sex scene? I didn’t know Google was such a prude. Why does censorship always surprise me, anyway? You’d think I’d be used to it by now.

    Anyway, I bought Heart of Christmas just for your short, so I’m set. ^_^

  2. Heh. I think they removed the pages that they did out of random acts of page-removal, to motivate people to buy the book, rather than a dislike for sexy times.

    I don’t think there’s any rhyme or reason to it. I mean, she’s already had an orgasm on screen, so to speak.
