Got 13 pages read in 40 minutes, so will go with that for the Saturday reading at Luna's *:)
Here is my lastest pitch, to use to introduce the novel at the reading:
HOUSE OF CUTS is the story of Amy Kovar, shocked into a new life path when she discovers the awful truth about her husband. With newfound courage, she battles to learn the story of her mother, who died giving birth to her, so she can resurrect the feminine line through her own future children. In trying to rescue the person who knew her mother best, Amy will come face to face against a killer, who imagines himself to be a sort of Robin Hood, destroying a rich and powerful global retailer in order to bring back to life little mom and pop stores.
