Omega Reader Wanted - Read a Series Backwards!



Ever Read a Series Backwards?



https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N47SEW5/

I will never be able to read my own books for the first time. Can't happen.
 

But, if I could, I'd love to read The Shapeshifters' Library backwards. I'd start with my personal favorite Reprinted (Book 4). FIRST!


I feel a lot of fantasy readers would have fun doing just that. If that idea makes you cringe and whimper, it's not for you. Just stop reading.


But, if you're intrigued - Here's the challenge!
 

I'm looking for a fantasy reader who has NOT read any of the four books in my series.

  • Must love dogs
  • Adore libraries
  • Possess a quirky imagination
  • Have an open mind about werewolves

If that's a fit, send me an email and I’ll give you Reprinted (Book 4 in my series) in the ebook format of your choice. 
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L7KT95I/

  1. Read it. Tell me what you think.
  2. l send you Book 3. Same deal.
  3. Next Book 2... 
  4. Then Book 3...

And finally after you've read the FINAL three books, you get BOOK 1 - Released. Let me blog about your experience and together we might start a new trend.

Love, Serendipity & Chocolate - a Paranormal Real-life Romance


Amber Polo's
Love, Serendipity & Chocolate






Indulge me as a republish my annual Valentines Day post:           

       Once upon a time, in 1994, I was the marketing manager for a Boston conference audio-taping company. My boss’s Polish wife decided to throw a party. Registered for a weekend regional Mensa conference at a hotel west of Boston, I was more interested in getting away from my co-workers than socializing with them. But, when your boss has a party, you go, even if the weather is awful and you know traffic to the west suburbs will be hell.

            So I ate Jolanta’s thick potato soup and dark bread and waited for the earliest polite moment to leave. At last, blocking the door, she told me I must take sweet treats with me. I opened my briefcase and she dropped in a handful of candy. I smiled and ran down the steps to head into Friday rush hour traffic.

            At the hotel Regional Gathering on Friday evening I met old friends. On Saturday morning I had my first ever tarot card reading. Still trying to make sense of the intricate cards, I walked into the Clear Thinking Workshop. I was not particularly interested in thinking; Thinking meant questions and I wanted answers. What did the future hold for me, my career, my fortune, and, most of all, my love life? Was it too much to hope to meet the love of my life? And soon?

            Sitting next to me, with obviously a more serious interest in clear thinking, was Vince Polo, an attractive, age-appropriate man from Maryland with a big smile. Vince and I left the workshop and over the next six hours drank a lot of coffee, discussed our lives, and shared personal stories and feelings. Vince’s intelligence, sense of humor, good looks, honesty, and his intense interest in me were irresistible. He stayed for the evening banquet, returned for sessions on Sunday and decided to stay in Boston for another day so we could have dinner on Monday evening.

            Sunday night, as I was unpacking my weekend luggage, I up-ended my bag and out fell two “Prince Polo Krunche wafel z kremem Kakawym oblewane naturalna Czekolada” candy bars in gold foil wrappers.

Had I found my prince?

Here's a photo from our Arizona wedding!

            A Polish deli near Sedona’s Well Red Coyote bookstore (now sadly closed) stocks Prince Polo chocolate-covered wafer candy bars. And like all the Polish people I've questioned, the deli owners agree the candy bars have been around forever and the name has no significance.
Little did I know back then that I've ever write a paranormal romance novel or a fantasy.
