E-novel nets author lots of free time

2 comments

More intrigue about a self-published digital novel we mentioned a few weeks ago.

"Accountable to None," by a writer with the pseudonym Ashley Fontainne, stirred up a bit of interest when it hit Kindle with a breezy tale of intrigue and evil in an accounting firm in a Southern city.

It's fiction, people, fiction. Particularly that stuff about rape and all. But as it happens, it wasn't long before people were noting a few minor similarities between people in the book and real people in Little Rock. We reported that here. (Doesn't every workplace have a workaholic, a controlling manager, an office politician, a male chauvinist, a striving bombshell?) Anyway, next thing you know the author was called in for a meeting with an unhappy boss.

The book was even pulled from the Amazon list for a time for revisions. But now it's back, on both Kindle and Nook, the Barnes and Noble digital reader. We can tell you that the author is free to work full-time on her fiction, no longer employed in the accounting field.
