Hi, everyone. As you know, I participated in Smashwords’ annual winter promotion. I listed all of my books for free (including Hugs and Hisses, which was entirely by accident since I donate my royalties to Humane Society Silicon Valley and usually do not discount it).
Anyway, I did this because a lot of people are hurting. A lot of people have very little spending money, and I wanted to give a gift to my readers.
In the period between Dec. 25, 2018 and January 1, 2019, I gave away 188 books. Some people literally selected my whole catalog, which made me feel good. By far the most popular was my multi-award winning historical paranormal, Bayou Fire.
Here’s how it all fell out, from most popular to least popular in terms of copies chosen/downloaded.
Bayou Fire – 28
Seen Through the Phantom’s Eyes (The Omnibus Edition) – 21
Clytie’s Caller – 19
A Light Across the Lake – 18
Yellowjack and the River Man – 15
Last Stop: Storyville – 14
In The Eye of The Beholder – 11
Brief Interludes – 9
In The Eye of The Storm – 9
Hugs and Hisses: My Mission of Love as a Shelter Volunteer – 8
His Beloved Infidel – 7
Through the Opera Glass – 6
Les Pensees Dangereuses – 5
Music, Mayhem, and Bad Decisions – 5
The Rock Star in the Mirror (Or, How David Bowie Ruined My Life) – 4
2010 Hindsight: A Year of Growth, In Spite of Myself – 3
If you were one of the people who chose my titles during the promotion, you have my thanks. I appreciate every single one of you who showed an interest in my work.
And now, here is the call to action mentioned in the headline. If you liked my work, I would truly love for you to share a review on your blog (feel free to link it in comments), GoodReads, or any other review site you use. Thanks for that as well.
