Here's the set-up:
"Raised in a crumbling New England mansion by four women with personalities as split as a cracked mirror, young Francis Grayson has an obsessive need to fix them all. There's his mother, distant and beautiful Magdalene; his disfigured, suffocating Aunt Stella; his odious grandmother; and the bane of his existence, his abusive and delusional Aunt Lothian. For years, Francis plays a tricky game of duck and cover with the women, turning to music to stay sane. He finds a friend and mentor in Aidan Madsen, schoolmaster, local Revolutionary War historian, musician and keeper of the Grayson women's darkest secrets. In a skillful move by Fullbright, those secrets are revealed through the viewpoints of three different people--Aidan, Francis and Francis'stepdaughter, Elyse--adding layers of eloquent complexity to a story as powerful as it is troubling. While Francis realizes his dream of forming his own big band in the 1940s, his success is tempered by the inner monster of his childhood, one that roars to life when he marries Elyse's mother. Elyse becomes her stepfather's favorite target, and her bitterness becomes entwined with a desire to know the real Francis Grayson. For Aidan's part, his involvement with the Grayson family only deepens, and secrets carried for a lifetime begin to coalesce as he seeks to enlighten Francis--and subsequently Elyse--of why the events of so many years ago matter now. The ugliness of deceit, betrayal and resentment permeates the narrative, yet there are shining moments of hope, especially in the relationship between Elyse and her grandfather. Ultimately, as more of the past filters into the present, the question becomes: What is the truth, and whose version of the truth is correct? Fullbright never untangles this conundrum, and it only adds to the richness of this exemplary novel." Kirkus Reviews

    How about an African American fiction category? I actually have readers who are mad when they get my novel and discover that the main characters are African American. Thanks for this site, it is awesome!

      Hi Lisa,

      Thanks for being in touch. I am sending along a link to our Kindle Nation Sponsorship Info Page for Authors and Publishers in the event it might be of interest at some point. In addition, your book(s) can be included free on some of our search lists, if applicable. Our database should pick them up for applicable lists, such as the Prime-Eligible Kindle Lending Library listings or the Quality 99-Centers list if they have 4+ stars on 4+ reviews at 99 cents, but you can give them a push if you go to our eBookTracker site, register or log in, and enter them manually.

      We’ve set up a very effective but inexpensive service to help get the word out to our readers above and beyond simply being in the list: http://bit.ly/waZvFS – New from Kindle Nation Daily: A Quick and Easy “Free Book Highlighter” Service to Help Indie Authors Get the Word Out About New Free Book Listings!
