A Fascinating Endeavor in the World of Publishing

Amazon recently came out with a program called Amazon Prime. When a reader joins, it gives them a host of free books to download and/or borrow. I decided to give it a try as an author, and I must say the results are staggering. In a good way!

Today, for example, is the last day my little story, Picture Perfect, will be available for free until this current 90 day period is over. Then, if I want, I can make it free again for another 5 days in the next cycle. Response has been overwhelming, shooting Picture Perfect straight to #1 of  Top 100 Free Short Stories on the very first day! And it’s remained there ever since!

Needless to say, I’m thrilled with that result. Far better than results I’d received on Smashwords. But, now the question remains… Will those thousands of people who downloaded, read the cute, little romp and decide to purchase my series? I have no clue yet as to whether transference will happen. But given the fact that my name is at least out there is building a foundation for future fans. Hopefully, readers will find the story charming and a little spicy and want to read more of my work.

In the meanwhile, to those of you who have read Picture Perfect, I THANK YOU! And for those who haven’t yet taken advantage of this FREE READ, don’t be shy, you can have your own copy, too. Just click on the cover here…

Picture PerfectHere’s the blurb for you to enjoy…

Jamie has it all, looks, brains, and a charming personality. But in this romance cover model’s world, those blessings become a curse when a colleague blurs the line between reality and fantasy. Will women only see him for his looks and never look below the surface to the man beneath?
Hope had a dream job, working with sexy, hot photographs, turning authors’ dreams into reality. When laid off from her publisher as a cover artist she must find her namesake in life again…some kind of hope for her future. Can a birthday wish give her what she truly desires? They say be careful what you wish for.
Destiny seems to bring Jamie and Hope what they need, each other. But a dangerous obstacle stands in their way as obsession turns deadly. Can Jamie trust in Hope’s grounded nature? Is Hope strong enough to live in Jamie’s world? Or will reality intrude on their fantasy of being together?

  1. Thanks for the information, Deena. I might look into that myself. I’m assuming it’s for full-length novels too. Good luck in your writing future
