About Tarot Sour:

"Chiefly among his tenets is the proclamation that the universe, and to a smaller extent, the Earth itself, is the same as a living animal. And at the end of their lives, in the midst of their death throes, such animals will writhe and convulse, wildly, savagely, with the hopes of staving off death for just a bit longer. And, like an injured animal, this convulsing will lead to unpredictable behaviors. Time will begin to overlap with itself. Individuals and objects might exist as simultaneous duplicates of themselves at different ages. They might disappear altogether for a time before reappearing someplace else, if at all, and might appear as incomplete, fragmented partials of what they should be."

This is not a story of the end of the world, but rather a story of six individuals in a dying shanty town for whom the world may as well already be over. When Elizabeth Hesse's husband and children go missing, a chain of events is set in motion that will lead the inhabitants of this town to consider the mistakes of their pasts and the destinies - relevant or not - their futures hold. An immortal woman who has lost all her reasons to live; a mother whose attempts to remain dutiful to her family chases her son into conscription for a confabulated war; a time-ravaged preacher whose last hope is that his greatest sins will become the source of the world's salvation; a fierce government industrialist who relies on the roll of a die to decide his every move; a cursed stranger who comes to town to reverse the orbit of the world and set things right again. Tarot Sour is a circular tale that revolves around itself in voice, in time, in place, and which will end itself exactly where it began.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book! :)

Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
