Hey, Amazon! I just bought another Macmillan book from Powell's.

It may be a small thing, but I'm buying a Macmillan imprint book from a non-Amazon online bookseller every day the Macmillan authors' buy buttons are missing from the Amazon site. Here's today's money-where-my-mouth-is salute to author solidarity:

A Whisper to the Living by Stuart M. Kaminsky (Forge, Jan 2010) Click link to buy from Powell's.

Per the flap:
A Whisper to the Living continues the adventures (some would say trials and tribulations) of Inspector Porfiry Petrovich Rostnikov, an honest policeman in a very dishonest post-Soviet Union. Rostnikov is one of the most engaging and relevant characters in crime fiction, a sharp and caring policeman as well as the perfect tour guide to a changing Russia.
Rostnikov and his team are searching for a serial killer who has claimed at least 40 victims. And then there is the problem of protecting a visiting British journalist who is working on a story about a Moscow prostitution ring...and in doing so Rostnikov and his team uncover a chain of murders that lead to a source too high to be held accountable if the police want to keep their jobs. Or their lives.

As a Macmillan author, THANK YOU! This whole thing has been a mess & with a new book out just this past Tuesday, it's been a struggle to get the word out to readers about all the *other* places there are to buy. :/

Hang in there, Heidi.
Hey, Heidi, thanks so much for stopping by. I've been thinking of you and all my other buddies at St. Martins Press.

To pick up one of my pal Heidi's fun, sexy knitting-themed romances (including her spanking new KNOCK ME FOR A LOOP), visit Borders Books at http://www.borders.com/online/store/TitleDetail?sku=0312946732 or one of your favorite online booksellers.

Or better yet, walk into an actual brick and mortar store and pick one up -- as I fully intend to do this weekend!
