Feeling grateful

I deeply appreciate everyone who has purchased my book, especially folks buying from Amazon UK. You’ve created a little bit of buzz — enough to improve the sales ranking quite a bit.

Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #211 Paid in Kindle Store (1/27/14)
#38 in Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Romance > Contemporary
#48 in Books > Fiction > Romance > Contemporary

Thank you so much! I hope you find the story well worth your valuable time and hard-earned money.

Body Double is live!

Last night, I uploaded the book to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. When I woke up this morning, not only was the book live on Amazon, I already had a sale! What a great way to start a Monday. ­čÖé

I’ll add the buy links to the book’s page.

Nearly finished

My first to-be-published romance novel is in the hands of my trusty editor, Susan (westofmars.com). I’ve been tweaking the cover, so once I get the edits back and input them, the book will be ready for release.

Am I nervous? YES! This is my first romance novel, and so of course I’m nervous about how the readers will receive this book. Will they love it? Hate it? Find it decidedly “meh?” From the feedback I’ve received so far, some readers will like it. The worst thing that can happen isn’t that it gets negative reviews. Some of those are actually helpful and instructive.

The worst thing that can happen is that nobody ever reads it.


This is my first post on the new blog. Hi! Thanks for stopping by.
