I have so much going on, and it’s all good. DailyCheapReads is featuring DEAD PEOPLE, Book 1 of my Haunted Hearts series, under its Super Cheap reads. (It’s only 99 cents!) I’m excited about that. Yesterday it was #11 on the Kindle bestseller list for the ghost category.
The reason that’s important is because when someone is looking for a book in a certain category, I want them to see mine in the first list that comes up. Also, the cover of my book will be more likely to included in the “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought…” row of books below another book that the reader is checking out. Right now, I’m #23 in Gothic and I want to be in the first 20. Better yet, the first 10! I hope the DailyCheapReads feature helps me get there. (I just checked my rank, and I’m at #9 in ghosts and 17 in Gothics! These numbers fluctuate quickly and might go the other way, but right now I’m excited!)
To celebrate Read An E-book Week, Smashwords invited authors to discount books. I created a coupon for DRAGON BLUES that puts it at half price, $1.50 instead of it’s normal $2.99 price. The coupon code is right below the e-book price and will be there through March 12, 2011.

Last night my husband and I had dinner at a nearby restaurant with my SIL and BIL. The food was good, but another reason we went there was that the two lower priced meals were free. My book bargain last week was an anthology, Kiss Me Kill Me, with stories by Zoe Winters, Lori Brighton, H.P. Mallory and others. It’s only 99 cents and all the proceeds go to charity!
