"It is the story of Everyman: the reclaiming of Self. "

Amazon's evident hostility to my forthcoming book - or their attempt to help it reach audiences who otherwise might never pick up something about naked boys throwing themselves into fires for the good of the species - has led to a seriously unbelievable product misdescription.

"true success comes from following the heart's lead, and that the mind only creates form for spirit's creative manifestation."

As for how Combined and Uneven Apocalypse is to be confused with Dee Wallace's Bright Light: Spiritual Lessons from a Life of Acting is utterly, utterly beyond me.   In fairness, I request only that her product description be swapped out for mine...

"The apocalypse isn't something that will happen one day: it's just the slow unveiling of the catastrophe we've been living through for centuries. Against any fantasies of progress, return, or reconciliation, Williams launches a loathing critique of the bleak present and offers a graveside smile for our necessary battles to come."

 But sure, if by "spirit's creative manifestation," you mean the fall of 1,000 blackbirds, then yes.

"Since it only involved a flock of blackbirds and only involved them falling out of the sky, it is unlikely they were poisoned"

Only involved...

You know, if by "heart's lead" they meant the metal, I could live with that.

What's left for you to do now is to rewrite Bright Light line by line, so that it ends up fitting its Amazon description.

That's right. I'll become the Pierre Menard of Christian inspirational memoirs. Albeit with heart lead embedded deep.

(Actually, I think I do need to get a copy of Bright Light and get cracking on a cut-up project...)
