Housekeeping


This is one of those housekeeping posts. Not enough info about any one thing to carry a column, so we’ll touch on everything.

This week, Born Lucky gets its turn in the freebie bin on August 29 and 30. Sales overall have increased with each free period, so, although I don’t fully understand the mechanics of it…it is working. Here is the Kindle link:


Grab a copy for yourself if you are Kindle inclined! And don’t forget, you don’t need a physical Kindle. If you have a smart phone or a tablet, you can get the Kindle ap and set up an account for yourself. If you do get the book, remember to go back and leave me a review. A lot of boards and blogs won’t post your book until you have a lot of reviews.

The Blood Run Trilogy is available on paperback through Amazon! I am very excited and thanks once again to the husband, the covers are really beautiful. I would venture to say that they are my favorite thus far. I will be bringing the trilogy to the Valenzano Wine Fest in September but we are only going to have a limited quantity so you better grab it the first day. I think they would make a great Christmas gift. Links to the paperbacks:


The online sales of Blood Run have been good and I think it might be because of the extra exposure it received from doing the free promotion on the first book. I had been watching a few books do the free thing on Amazon and became interested in a horror book called “Alex” by Adam J. Nicolai.  In the author’s blog, he recounted how he went from two or four book sales a day up to ninety to a hundred and twenty books a day (over time). Granted, his book has almost all five star reviews. I’m sure that has helped sales. I downloaded it and read it over two nights and it’s an entertaining read. Scary and heartfelt. Sad. Redeeming. All in all, deserving of its ratings. So if you get a chance, check it out. Link here:
 


In the meantime, I will watch as “Stephen King, A Short Story” rises through the ranks all on its own. Lots of interest in that little thirty-some-pager I wrote. Might have something to do with the title…? Link here:

Listing Born Lucky led to me purchasing Faith Creation. Loved the first book (went looking for more - in case it was a series), and the "teaser" for Faith definitely compelled me to purchase it!

Cynthia, thanks so much! There are more Faiths and Born Luckys (Luckies?) on the way.
Best Regards,
Christine
