When something really works…

Hooray!

Hooray!

Remember when I said that the Goodreads giveaway was a good idea? Well it was a VERY good idea! I sold 603 copies of The Disenchanted Pet for Kindle in November!!! All I can think that I did to earn my success was to give it some free days with Select and then give it away on Goodreads for free. Did I miss something? Oh yes, promoting it for more than a year 😉 . That puts me at an impressive Amazon bestseller ranking of 99,629. Heheh.

On the flip side, not everyone’s reaction was positive: http://www.nathanshumate.com/?p=7550 If you read this, Nathan, I do plan to re-do this cover. It was my very first book, after all.

Author Blog-in: Home to Stay by June McCullough

This week I am participating in Kate Policani’s Author Blog-In. Over the next week I will publish different posts about other author’s novels. If you are looking for your next read, or perhaps a gift for someone, make sure you visit this site throughout the week to see if something catches your interest. Something like

Home to Stay

With the weather getting colder and the busy season about to descend upon us, don’t forget to put an evening aside just for you. Get yourself a cup of hot chocolate, or a glass of wine and escape with this contemporary romance that will take you to a ranch just outside Calgary, Canada.

Synopsis

Although she has never stopped referring to Aces Corral as her home, it has been two years since Diana Crawford has stepped foot on the ranch. Her decision to return home was made just as abruptly as her decision to leave, but as Diana’s car pulls into the long driveway, she knows it is time once again to build the family ranch into a successful business. Little does she know that waiting for her return is a man determined to change everything.

Coming home is emotional for Diana. She is thrilled to reunite with her elderly next-door neighbours, Len and Dot Mackenzie, who are the closest thing to family she has left. But when she meets their nephew for the first time, his captivating eyes and quiet strength hypnotize her. There is no mistaking the attraction, and it is not long before Barry Daniels lassoes her heart. As Diana works on reconciling her past, she knows she has a lot to learn about running a business and when Diana finds evidence of a betrayal that could destroy everything she has worked for; she is desperate to find a way to expose the scheme.

In this contemporary cowboy romance, a woman on the fringes of finding her own inner strength must expose a web of deceit before she loses everything she has ever loved.

Excerpt

“I better go. Think about what I said. There’s something between us and I don’t think we should deny it. I’m willing to take a chance and I want to know if you are, too, but I don’t want you to answer right now.”

He walked over to the door, opened it, and turned back to face her. “It would be sad if we never took a chance and ended up missing out on one of the best things to happen to either of us. You can let me know tomorrow at the barbeque.”

With that, he shut the door and was gone. Diana stood at the counter for a long time after. The feelings he stirred in her both excited her and scared her. Her mind was swimming as she slid her back down the cupboard, until she was sitting on the kitchen floor.

What am I going to do? Should I back off and play it safe, so I won’t be sorry? Or will I be sorry if I play it safe?

Author Blog-in: Scarlet Bastards by Sean MacUisdin

 

“Breathe deeply, jawan, it shall be your last.”

So was the memorable opening dialogue of The Scarlet Bastards, the memoirs of a young man named Alexander ”Sikunder” Armstrong. A seventeen year old  runaway from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, “Sikunder”  fled the tedium of a well planned life to the frigid dystopian wastes of the Serberor Campus on the distant colony of Samsāra some 20 light years from Earth. Here, as a jawan in the United Nations Off-World Legion, “Sikunder” experiences the dumping ground of the refugee camps of the United Nations; where tribes and warlords rule with an  iron fist and life is cheap and easily lost.

Come join “Sikunder” as he fights pirates on the decks of a paddlewheeler, teaches the finer points of the j-stroke to his decuria leader, MacShaka the Tartan Zulu, and encounters members of the villainous Chinese gang, The Black Hand, after a bottle of bad pinot noir and a plate of the foulest fish in the Seleucus Lacus!
