If you’re in the United States, you may request a Kindle ebook of my poetry collectionEnkidu is Dead and Not Dead / Enkidu está muerto y no lo está. This giveaway involves 100 copies. A corporation will select the winners. (Sorry about the limitation of U.S. recipients. It was decided by corporations and lawyers.)
The giveaway opened yesterday, and 150 people have already entered, so there is competition for these e-copies. There is no reason not to put your name in the hat, too, unless you do not like poetry. The deadline to enter is March 19. You have one week. Go. Go.
Kindle is the only available format of this giveaway. You don’t need a Kindle device to read a Kindle book, though. You can read it in a free app.
If you need your poetry in print, the Enkidu poems can be purchased in paperback.
After years of research, I’m ready to share this hybrid work: biography, history, philosophy, personal essay. Edward Cumming (1901–1940) planned to write about historical castrations, but my book, Ten Past Noon, is about much, much more than that. It’s about suicide, free will, and fortieth birthdays. If you like long, elaborate, experimental nonfiction, this is for you.
Copies will be delivered as Kindle eBooks. Never read on Kindle? You don’t need to have a Kindle device! You can install the free Kindle app on any device, and you can even read without installing any app by using Amazon’s “cloud reader.”
100 free copies are available. Goodreads will randomly select the winners. You can enter through March 17, 2020. [Update: Nearly 300 people entered, and copies were distributed! Thank you for your interest!]
This book is free for Kindle today and tomorrow (Oct. 21 and 22).
Painting Dragons by Tucker Lieberman
This book is about how castrated men are often portrayed as monsters in fiction. I ask: What’s the “evil eunuch” stereotype, and why do novelists reproduce it? In this book, I explore the stereotypes that fashion these cruel, warped characters and encourage fiction writers to change the game.
I would like you to see the book and work your way around and through it. I would like to hear your opinions. Please download the book and post a review. (Remember, it’s free today and tomorrow.) Please share the link to this book with someone who needs to know about it. The book is no longer mine. It is for all of you.
Why does the “evil eunuch” stereotype exist? How does it play out in novels?
Writers: How might you change the game in your novel?
Painting Dragons: What Storytellers Need to Know About Writing Eunuch Villains is coming in Fall 2018! This book examines how castrated men have been stereotyped in fiction. If this subject is as fascinating for you as it has been for me, I’d love for you to join my book launch team. Launch team members get a free, advance copy of the eBook and are asked to post a review on Amazon on the launch day.
