After Sale update

The 99 cent kindle sale is over.  Back to $2.99. 

It's well worth the price even if I say so myself. :)

My sales did go up a little the day I did the promo which was the first day of the 99 cents sale. I might try another promo later. Maybe when I can lower the kindle price again.

Those of you who bought on Kindle or borrowed with KU please review on Amazon. Reviews are a writer's bread and butter.

I'm almost finished with chapter 3 of Fire. I added a little romance in the middle and I'll add a bit at the end. After all Nick and Sara are engaged. :)

According to vampire law they are already mated/ bonded but both Sara and vampires believe in courtship, long courtship in vampires' case. Formal bonding or marriage is the goal but not required for vampires since male vampires cannot cheat on their mates.


This is the cover I did on canva.com for Fire. The inverted triangle is the symbol for fire and the flame is self-explanatory...What do you think?

Should the book be brown like Earth with red triangle/ yellow flame to add consistency?

I like it the way it is but it might look good on brown....

Again thanks to all who bought my Earth book in support of this first time Author.

Sale, Sale, Sale!

99 cent sale!

 Get your red hot download!

 If you were thinking about reading it now's the time. The kindle version of my Earth book is on sale for 99 cents June 20, 21, & 22 then goes up to $1.99 until June 26 when it goes back to the regular price of $2.99.

Fire is in Chapt 3 still, but half way through. I already mentioned the arsonist/ killer and a motive. As I said in a previous blog there's a twist and it has to do with multiple personalities....

That's a serious spoiler.

I played around on a site called Canva.com. It has free graphics. I made a cover for Fire Walker, but I don't know if I'll use it when I publish the book. I have a different cover in mind but you never know.

The book signing last Saturday went well. I signed three books and talked to several people. We're thinking about having another on in the fall. We'll see.

Two more people borrowed my book through Kindle Unlimited so three altogether. KU is worth the monthly fee so join and borrow to your heart's content. :)

The two promos are to start today. The 99 cent deal has started as you can see, but I don't know about the other. Guess I'll find out later--if my sales go up. :)

Again thanks to all who got my book and please review. Reviews are the writer's bread and butter!

Fire

Chapter 2 is done!

I'm finally out of chapt 2 and I wrote a whole page in chapt 3 in Fire.  I also completed the blurb of Fire.

FIRE
Police Consultant Sara Phillips reads the earth like a medium hears the dead. When suspicious fires break out in a rural community that match a strange blaze that took an FBI agent's life, Sara and her FBI boyfriend Nick Issaro investigate. Over the next few days Nick and Sara piece together the case and discover the arsonist's deadly secret--a secret so unusual that it defies belief. Will they both survive or will one of them go up in flames?

What do you think?

Still sticking with Fire Walker as the title. Unless y'all have a better suggestion....

One person borrowed Earth on Kindle Unlimited. It's free on KU so if you're interested, go for it.

Tomorrow's the book signing at the Library Center on Campbell from 11am to 2pm.  I only got a few of my book's so it literally will be-first come, first served.  :)

The promo is set for my Earth book from June 19th to June 26th.  So that's done. More about that later.

I plan to take my computer with me to the book signing so I can work on Fire during any lulls. Only 6 months left 'til January and I want this book done so I can work on Water and Air for Jano.  And I want to publish Fire by May of 2016.  A book a year is what I'm going for.

Book 5 Aether is still just a vague outline, but Water and Air have been thought out past the outline stage though I only have the outline in my head for now. Water has about 6 pages done and Air just the first in the computer. I started a book bible on both, but neither has much in it right now.  After all I'm mainly a pantser and work on the fly. :)

Again those of you who got my Earth book, thank you and please review. I want to hear your opinions.

June update


Springfield Writer's Guild is having a book signing at the Library Center on Campbell Saturday June13 from 11am to 2pm. I'm going to be there with a few of my books to sell. If you're going to be in town that day stop on by. I'd love to see you. :)

I'm still in chapter 2 on Fire but I wrote a page yesterday and a paragraph this morning. I think I'm over the hump. Tomorrow is my day off and I plan to work on the book. I already got ideas for chapter 3 running through my head so I should finish it quickly. But then I thought that about chapter 2...

If you want a taste of Fire, click on teaser 2. It's the rough draft of the first pages of the book.

According to amazon I've sold 8 kindle and 2 hard copies of my Earth book. Yesss!

I ordered a deal with the promo group so we'll see if sales pick up after it starts.

After the 19th I also set up a special sales price with Amazon. So those of you who were debating getting the kindle version of my book can get it at a lower price between the 20th and the 27th. I'll announce the sales price promo closer to time. Just wanted to tell ya it's in the works. :)

Those of you who bought my book, Thank you. I hope you liked it and will review on Amazon.
