As part of the marketing platform for UNCLAIMED (Amoveo Legend #5), which releases on Dec. 3rd, my publisher put UNTOUCHED (Amoveo Legend #2) on sale for $0.99. Running an eBook promotion is a great way to introduce new readers to the series and hopefully it will drive sales for the upcoming release. The truth is, no one really knows if it will do what everyone really wants it to do, which is to put UNCLAIMED on one of the BIG LISTS–(USA Today or NYT).
I’m not gonna lie. That would a major dream come true and if it happens I’ll be doing a serious happy dance.
If it doesn’t happen, well, that’s okay too because life is about the journey not the destination and I’m having one helluva time on this journey. Yesterday UNTOUCHED started climbing its way up the charts, thanks in large part to a Book Bub ad, and watching it hit certain milestones was really cool. I took pictures at different points because I’ve been doing this long enough to know that these “milestones” don’t last very long. Like I said, it’s all about the journey and these were some neat stops along the way.
Seeing UNTOUCHED hit the Amazon Top 100 was career 1st and so was having it hit #1 in everyone of its categories! Then, as if that’s not exciting enough, I see my name and books right next to my all-time favorite author….Christine Feehan!!!!!!
I was at #20 on the Top 100 Paranormal Romance authors list, right below the Goddess Herself….Ms. Feehan.
Seriously? I never dared dream that I could be on any list with Christine Feehan.…and for a brief moment in time…it happened. Christine’s book, Dark Prince, was the first paranormal romance novel I ever read and from that point on I was hooked.
These moments are a thrill and they help soothe the occasional scathing review but at the end of the day it’s all about the books. I love writing and creating wild, sexy worlds for readers to get lost in and hitting the BIG LIST or not–will never change that. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to add that tag line to my bio and book covers but if/when it happens…that will still part of the journey…it will not be the destination.
The journey with the Amoveo continues this Tuesday, December 3rd, with the release of UNCLAIMED. I do hope you’ll continue on this wild ride with me and though I can’t make any promises about exactly where we’ll end up, I can promise it will be one hell of a ride.
