YOU’VE DONE IT! 100 REVIEWS ON AMAZON!!! YOU ARE THE BEST READERS

You Guys!!!

I think every person who puts their words out there hopes their story will be well received, yet they have to brace themselves for the alternative.

YOU GUYS!!!

Your notes, your messages – you enjoying this first book so much that you take the time to encourage others to read it too…

I cannot believe the positive reception.

I am so… grateful.

And today?
Wow.

This isn’t even a milestone.  For so many books – I can’t tell you how many wonderful, amazing, incredible books out there – they *never* get…

They only end up with a handful of reviews to show for it.

Some of these books have been published and collecting reviews for years.

STOLEN has been published for officially… ONE MONTH TODAY.

And look.

LOOOOOOK!!!

100 REVIEWS AMAZING REVIEWS!

SO COOL

 

That’s… this is…

I CAN’T EVEN!

Why are reviews so important?

They help future readers decide if they want to invest their money and time into checking it out and that’s huge (Someday I might be able to write as a full time job.  I’m scared to dream but you should SEE the nice things you have shared with me about how something I wrote made you feel.  I’m tearing up just writing that.  Your notes have meant the world to me.  So yeah.  Dreaming.) — but more reviews means a special cog is added to the Amazon algorithm and now STOLEN will come up in more searches, be offered more often as a “You might be interested in” and “Other Customers Enjoyed”.

MORE chances for it to get seen, borrowed, bought, read, reviewed – repeat.

YOU, my readers – (HOLY WTF I HAVE READERS)  – are THE BEST.

YOU are wonderful, amazing, incredible.

THANK YOU!

BOOK 2 COMING… JUNE??

You know what the question of the day has been for me?
“Will there be a Book 2???”
YES YOU WONDERFUL, ENCOURAGING, AWESOME READERS – yes.
Ideally, book 2 will be out in June.
This series (and – horrifyingly – large chunks of many of the stories I’ve written) is being transferred from handscribbled journals (this was really convenient to jot in when I was at work but now I’m kinda crying because I have AWFUL handwriting) but tentatively, it’d be fabulous if I could get a story put up every few months.

THANK YOU ALL!!!!

TITLE CHANGE: New Name, SAME STORY

Note to readers: TITLE CHANGE!!
Amazon will be making the update within 72 hours – this is not a new book; just a new name.
This was previously titled ABDUCTED, AUCTIONED, & STOLEN BY AN ALIEN. Some of you shared that you were glad you gave the book a chance, despite the title putting you off – I’m really glad you gave it a chance too AND thank you for the helpful feedback; YOU’RE WONDERFUL ♥

 

 

All in a Name

Readers have been AWESOME with feedback (THANK YOU GUYS!!) and a common suggestion has been: change the title.

I want you to know: I’m hearing you!

Stolen by an ALIEN is what I’d like to change it to (with each book in the series getting similarly titled, i.e. Rescued by an ALIEN (Zadeon’s story), and Captured by… and so on, so forth)

I’m only hesitating because others who have gone before me say that readers get notified of a new book, are EXCITED for the new release… only to be disappointed that it’s the same book they already have.

On the other hand, I don’t want to inhibit sales (check out how many reviews say they almost passed on it) by keeping the current title either.

I could wait to retitle for the day Zadeon’s is published – but will people check in for the new, and…

Decisions, decisions.

…I think the argument for changing the title now is the best option, and when I do I’ll add another blog post to PublicServiceAnnouncement/explain: NOT NEW BOOK, JUST RENAMED, and I’ll add that in all the places I can to hopefully, hopefully avoid confusion and feelings of letdown when you see Zadeon’s book isn’t up yet.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS!!!

How Readers Nearly Killed Me

So I went to visit ABDUCTED, AUCTIONED, & STOLEN BY AN ALIEN and…

THERE ARE ALREADY REVIEWS!!  

I nearly fell out of my chair.

(For those that are waiting with bated breath; that was it.  Nearly falling is basically almost dying, in case you weren’t sure.)

Ohhhh, I could KISS each and every one of you.

(I found a .gif and was going to drop it here, but it looked just a little too creepy so I scrapped it.  But trust me.  I mean it.  SMOOCHES.

This one better captures my heartfelt appreciation:

Seriously; YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME.

And — and THIS IS AS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE AS THE FACT THAT PEOPLE TOOK THE TIME TO GO AND LEAVE A REVIEW — THEY ARE *SUCH GOOD REVIEWS*  They made ME think, and encouraged me, and HOLY CRAP

giphy

You guys.

For every author: so important. For a new author? Means the WORLD

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
