Indie Adventures

April 25, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

Readers are delightful, quirky, and far beyond my ability to predict. Obviously I’m not a marketing guru or a promo queen. If I were I would likely be far too busy making big bucks to write erotic romance. :lol: My few efforts to promote my books have met with scant results.

I’ve been super fortunate to be published by companies savvy in the ways of building readership. Yet some of my best work had remained largely undiscovered. The Demon Hunter Series languished on the virtual shelf despite enthusiastic support from reviewers and a few loyal readers.

When the right to publish COLIN reverted to me, I took the plunge, revamped the blurb, cover, and polished the story. Then I offered the book for free on Amazon and held my breath.

Thousands downloaded the title and I didn’t know whether to cheer or cry. After the promotion period expired nothing happened for a couple of days. Slowly, one or two at time, sales trickled in until my little scotch heart settled down and I went back to work. COLIN sold more copies in the first month as an indie title than in the last two years of being professionally published. More thrilling for me, a whole bunch of new readers embraced one of my favorite erotic romances.

Thank you all so much for taking a chance on COLIN. Readers finding and enjoying my stories means the world to me. :heart:
