A Little Note from Amazon

Thursday, March 12, 2009
This morning's e:mail brought a little note from Amazon, advising me that I can now get Paranormal Romance Books For Under $10!

Huh?

Since when do I like "paranormal romance books?" The last book related item I bought from Amazon was Death by Black Hole by my celebrity boyfriend Neil deGrasse Tyson. And I bought that for my Kindle, since if a volume I'm interested in is available on Kindle, it's a safe bet I'm going to buy the download rather than the hard copy.

So where did the paranormal romance books come from? The Anita Blake books I bought for my Smart Daughter? Wouldn't that be paranormal erotica?

I think Amazon needs to tweak its algorithms just a bit.

I got that. Stuff that I classify as supernatural fantasy they classify as paranormal romance.

And I'm betting Anita Blake would do it.

Come on Janiece, you can fess up on your penchant for zombie/warewolf slash fiction. We won't judge.

Matt, I have enough REAL stuff that I need to be ashamed of that I really don't need to make shit up.

Thanks, though.
