I wanted to give you some updates on what’s been going on with the series, my writing, and the chaos that is my life.
First and Foremost – I LOVE YOU GUYS! You are all the reason why I’m writing. The support you’ve shown me and love I feel is absolutely AMAZING! When I see comments on my FB page that people are hooked and they loved the book – it floors me. I want to reply – really? Seriously? You’re talking about my book right? Surreal to know that people other than my friends and family (whom I adore BTW!!) like what I do. So thank you, from the bottom of my coffee and chocolate laden heart.
Secondly – Between the days of November 1-17, 50 books were sold through Amazon. That’s great! So $50 went to the American Red Cross. Thank you for your support – and please keep donating – they could use the help.
Oh – and I did a free promo over the weekend. And my mind was blown away at the amount of people that downloaded The Broken Road. Once the promo ended, the book was downloaded 32,688 times. HOLY MOLY! That’s … that’s just bananas to me. I made #2 on Amazon’s Top 100 Free Ebook List, and #1 on both Amazon’s Top 100 Free Romance and 100 Top Free Literary Fiction. That’s freaking huge. So thank you – thank you thank you! I’ll be doing another free promo sometime in January.
Broken Promises – A lot of you want to know when book two is coming out. WELLL – Broken Promises SHOULD be out late February/early March. I say “should” because… well… I’m still writing it. Promoting The Broken Road, working all day, and life in general made Broken Promises take a backseat. But now that life is a little less hectic – I’m focusing all my free time on making it better than The Broken Road. (seriously – I should post pictures on how many loads of clean laundry are piled on my bed.)
I have a million ideas running through my head about the series – and I can’t wait to show you! I’m sure you’ll be just as excited as I am.
Melissa – xoxo.
