I'm not real fond of forums, but they do have their purposes, and mine, right now, is to gain new readers.
My book sales have really slowed down since the big publishing houses put their old books all on Amazon this last September 2013 to sell older titles that have already done well. What do they have to lose? Nothing. But those of us who are self-published have really felt the hit. I was hoping to reverse that trend. To do this, I started a discussion about The Governess, whether you've read the Trilogy (with new end chapters added) or one of the original volumes. I would love to encourage anyone who has read this book to participate in this discussion.
Would you share what others might possibly enjoy about my story to increase the interest on Amazon.com (which is, by far, my largest audience)? I sure could use the help, please. Thanks, everyone!

P.S. Please feel free to add comments to any avenue for book discussions (i.e., Goodreads, Shelfari, Kobo, Lulu, etc.). These comments would, I hope, draw attention to the book as well. Thanks! ;)
P.S.S. If anyone has a blog or website--I would certainly make myself available to do an interview or blog tour. Sorry! I feel like I'm pushing myself on everyone, but I could really use the readers. Thanks!
I'm happy to say that Volume Three has done well this first week since it's release. In the UK, Volume Three is at #1! YAY!! Volume Two is at #3, and Volume One is at #11.
In the US, Volume Three was at #3 last night, but is now at #6. I'm still thrilled with that; any day of the week, in fact! Volume Two is at #8 while Volume One is at #12. All good numbers, and I'm thrilled to be on the first page of Religious Romance Fiction on any chart out there. Hooray for Christian Romance!
I'm in the process of assisting a few other authors with their projects (my friend, my sister, my husband, and my son--a fourth grader last year who wants to compile all his writings and drawings into a book before school starts. I'm thrilled!). But as soon as I'm finished with those projects, I'll be busily typing away at Pirate Bride's creation. Progress is always being made, thus bringing me closer to publishing new books in The Huntington Saga series novels. Pirate Bride is scheduled for release spring of 2014. I'll be thrilled to be working on that project! Woohoo!
In the meantime, if you are looking for good authors out there with good stories, visit my bookshelf, either on GoodReads or on Shelfari. I've read some amazing books over the years, some more satisfying than others, but they have driven me to share my own creative writings.
Have a happy day, everyone!
