Premature Lover???

I can't stop laughing... :)

Amazon has done a great job of helping me sell my novel, and I am very grateful. But being that Amazon is such a huge operation, the wires are bound to get crossed from time to time.

I recently ran across my novel in a list of recommended books Amazon posted on the web. Great news, of course! The list included a cover of each novel, plus a short passage detailing the plot. I have to believe the resulting weirdness must have been a computer malfunction of some sort, for how else could the description have become so garbled? I don't think even human error could have produced something this weird or funny!

First, here is the descriptive passage as it was supposed to be written:

In the Colorado mountain town of Glenwood Springs, not far from Aspen, artist/photographer Gwyn Sanders discovers a cryptic letter her sister Kelly left behind. The victim of a deadly hit and run, Kelly reveals she was sexually involved with her sister's boyfriend and is scared for her life. Both Gwyn and her remaining sister Linda have since married their boyfriends, so either of their husbands could be guilty of murder. The sisters received a large inheritance before meeting these men, and know little of either man's background. Worse, both Gwyn and Linda love their husbands deeply, but steps must be taken to find the truth. And the truth is complicated. Is it one of the two men, or another previous lover? Or none of them? Danger abounds and everyone is a suspect as Gwyn tries with the help of a gifted private detective to track a killer....

And here is the new adulterated version, word for word: (PS - My apologies to nuns or anyone else this may offend.)

In the Colorado heaps townsfolk of Glenwood Springs, not interahamwe from Aspen, artist/photographer Gwyn Sanders discovers a inscrutable letter her nun Kelly left-hand ass. The unfortunate of a devilishly touch on and guide, Kelly reveals she was sexually inplicated with her nun's lover and is afraid for her life history. Both Gwyn and her left over nun Linda hurt since matrimonial their boyfriends, systematic either could stay fault of mutilate. Worse, some Gwyn and Linda make love their husbands profoundly, merely steps necessary stay appropriated to line up the truth. The sisters normative a declamatory heritage in front geographical point these men, and secernate diminutive of either man's downplay. And the truth is complex. .. .. Is it unity of the ii men, hospital room other premature lover? Or time of day of them? Danger abounds and everyone is a fishy as Gwyn tries with the amend of a precocious snobbish policeman to selection a somebody

Hmmm, this could lead to a whole new line of plot ideas, I'm sure.... :)
