I’m always trying something different, sometimes because of outside changes (lose a publisher or hear about a new publishing opportunity), and sometimes for variety (write sexy romances, sweet romances, romantic suspense, straight suspense and thriller). Back in the mid ‘90s, my Silhouette editor told me about a new line that was being created. The idea was you often have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find Prince Charming.
I liked the idea and that led to HEIRESS SEEKING PERFECT HUSBAND.
Last year I put that book out as an e-book with Amazon and tried their Select program. That was new for me. Being in the program limited me to only using Amazon to distribute the book, and I had to stay in the program for 90 days. If I didn’t say anything, it would automatically renew for another 90 days, and on and on. I could only pull the book out of that particular program at the end of a 90 day period.
Well, I sold a few books, but not a lot. More my fault than Amazon. I was busy getting ready to promote ECHOES OF TERROR. Finally, I decided to pull HEIRESS from the Select Plan and last month, in addition to Amazon, I made it available on Nook, and all of the other e-book sellers.
To let everyone know about the book, I’ve decided to put it on sale at .99 cents for just one week (September 4th – 9th).
THIS IS THE WEEK!
This week I’m also appearing on several blogs. I started on Monday by appearing at M.J. Schiller, Romance Author, Authors’ Cafe and Books, Dreams, Life. Tuesday I was at Reader’s Edyn. Today, besides this blog, I’m at Creative Hodgepodge and tomorrow I’ll be at Diane Burton: adventure & romance and Serious Whimsy with Jolana Malkston. Friday I’ll be at Melissa Keir and Loren E. Pryce. And, finally, Saturday, September 9th, I’ll be at What Readers Want and Romance Me .
If you go to one of those blogs and sign up for my newsletter, your name will be entered in a drawing. I’m giving away two (2) $10.00 Amazon gift cards.
I don’t know about you, but when I was dating, I went out with a several men who certainly didn’t turn into Prince Charming. While writing HEIRESS SEEKING PERFECT HUSBAND, I had fun creating a few less than perfect dates for Shannon Powell as well as putting her chauffeur (?) in difficult situations.
Do visit some of those guest blogs and enter to win a gift card. Or better yet, buy a copy while its just .99 cents.
