Not to mention about 800 photos we took in Australia that I should really comb through to share the best of with you, that I never really had time to upload while I was on the road.
But I have to start somewhere, so I’m just diving in. I figure it’ll all sort itself out as I go along and if I don’t start now, I’ll never start, y’know?
So, let’s start with good news. From my in-box while I was away:
Blood Knot, my erotic paranormal MMF romance, was selected for Coffeetime Romance’s Reviewer Recommended Award. The award recognizes outstanding writing styles in all book types and genres. The reviewer who nominated Blood Knot told me: “Your book has received this award because I feel it is above and beyond a 5 Cup Rating. I was simply amazed at your writing talent!”
Fatal Wild Child also received a very nice 4-star review from Coffee Time Romance, that included the magic words: “This is one of the best romantic suspense novels I have read this year.” That was an email worth opening!
I’ve posted an excerpt of the review on the book’s page (here), and of course pasted it all over Facebook and Twitter. 🙂
Fatal Wild Child emerged onto the secondary markets while I was away. You can now buy it at Barnes & Noble, Apple and Sony and I’ve added buy links to the book’s page.
Smashwords will soon be adding mobile apps to the list of formats they offer readers, which means you will be able buy formats for Apple, Android, Windows Phone 7 and HP’s WebOS. I’ve been reading my books on my cellphone for years. It appears that many other readers have been, too, if Smashwords are making this move to provide formats for mobile phones. In Japan, reading on your cellphone is the norm, which is why ebook covers are so small and simple. With the first surge of popularity in ebook reading passing on and early adopters are already looking around for the next cool gadget to play with, perhaps there might be a secondary wave of movement toward cellphone reading as people merge their handheld devices into one convenient all-in-0ne handheld.
That’s it for now. I’ll be back, I’m sure. As soon as I hit “publish” I’m sure I’ll think of something else…!
