News Updates

A couple of news updates...

First, Dying Embers is still at 99 cents - but only until Sunday night/Monday morning.  Then the price will go up to $2.99.  Now's your opportunity to get $2 off. 

Second, the paperback copies of Accidental Death are here.  They look lovely.  A Goodreads contest should start Monday - I'm just waiting for approval from the Goodreads people. 

Third, if you've read Accidental Death, I would love it if you would post a review.  I have one at Amazon UK and Goodreads, but regular Amazon is kinda lonely.

Fourth, the ad at Ereader News Today did its job and got Dying Embers into the bestseller rankings in my category (Kindle/Mystery, Thriller, Suspense/Crime/Serial Killers) which seems to be getting me some nice residual sales.  At the height, I hit #9 on the above list.  As of the ad going live, I've sold 219 copies that I know of.  (Some expanded sales outlets don't report for up to 60 days.)  The majority of that was on the day of the ad, and I assume the sales since have been residual from the ad and from hitting the rankings. 

Fifth, I heard from the cover artist for Wish in One Hand.  I should see a mock up of the cover concept soon.  Then we'll go back and forth a bit if things need tweaking.  I can't wait to see what he's done.

Got any news or updates to pass along?


  1. Wow, you've got SO much exciting stuff going on. So happy for you!

    Still reading Accidental Death and I'm really enjoying it. (The bit about speaking ill of the dead killed me!!)

    1. Thanks, JB! And thanks for enjoying Accidental Death. =o)

  2. When I get my head above water, I'll chime in on Amazon and Goodreads. :)

    Can't wait to see the cover concept. And big thumbs up on the Ereader News. Do you have to be on all sales channels to do an ad there?

    And it's Friday! Wish I had the weekend off. LOLOL

    1. I totally understand, Silver. You're up to your ass in alligators. Almost literally with all the rain you've had.

      I don't think you need to be up on anything but Amazon. Here's their TOS page:

      Yay for Friday, but yeah, it doesn't mean much to us when we don't have the weekends off. ;o)

  3. Congratulations. That's a lot of reasons to be cheerful.

  4. Hooray! Congratulations on so many sales and on reaching #9!!!

    I can hardly wait to see the cover for Wish in One Hand. :-)
