Just to let you know, Blessing or Curse is almost ready for release. I'm working on some final edits, and hope to have everything ready by the middle of the month, after all the 4th of July festivities are over, and people are back in the mood for reading.
This second book in the Always YoungTrilogy differs from the thriller, Forever Young: Blessing or Curse, in that this one concentrates on the test subjects' loves and relationships. The last book,athriller called Always Young, will answer all questions about the original characters and villains.
What Blessing or Curse Is About -
Five Separate People with Five Separate Stories,
Yet One Thing in Common:
They All Take a Pill to Turn Back The Clock. Who'll Mend This Broken Man - Diego's frantic wife, Consuela, hopes to restore her Parkinson-crippled husband to his former self.
Too Much of a Good Thing - Ezekial, suffering from E.D., wants desperately to live up to the African-American male image.
What I Did For Love - Has-been model,Sherri, will resort to anything to get back into the game.
Suspicion - Doormat Dee Dee turns over a new leaf when she suspects her husband of cheating.
For the Love of Dog- Chicago cop, Mike, fears for the loss of job and dog if he fails a physical.
Since my thriller, Forever Young: Blessing or Curse, had participated in quite a few KDP Select freebie events before this past weekend, I wondered if the market was already saturated for this combination thriller, science fiction, and romance novel. Not so!
I was pleasantly surprised when the major promotional site, Ereader News Today jumped on the bandwagon and picked up my novel on their site. What a difference it makes when a popular promotional site backs a book!
For the first time, Forever Young: Blessing or Curse made it into the top 100 Free Kindle Books. Not only that, it made it to #50 and ranked at #2 in Science Fiction. That was quite a surprise, a very pleasant one at that!
This is especially significant since I'm three-fourths through edits for the sequel, Blessing or Curse, which I hope to send to my editor, Helen Ginger, very soon for finishing touches.
Moral of the story: don't sell your book short. There may still be great times ahead!
Though Forever Young: Blessing or Curse is now back at its original price of $2.99, if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can still get a free copy. Or, you can pay the $2.99. Here's the link: http://amzn.com/B006MO28CQ
This book is for all those who wish to be young again, and for those who still are!
I had a lot of fun with the recent Her Handyman promotion. Since this book has already been featured in free book promos four times, I decided that today will be the last day for it participate in the KDP Select program. I may reinstate it in the program at a later date for new readers to enjoy.
In the meantime, it's onward march, getting my taxes done. After that, it's working on Blessing or Curse, my anthology about what happens to five people who take the Forever Young pill.
Promoting takes up a lot of time, and is necessary. Still, I do need to get back to writing!
If you missed out on the freebie, today only, if you're a Prime member, you can still get Her Handyman for free. Everyone else needs to cough up 99 cents! http://amzn.com/B0097EVXBK
If you don't have your Kindle or PC copy of Her Handyman yet, you've got another chance during the three day freebie promotion from Friday, March 1, 2013 through Sunday, March 3, 2013.
Come and get it!
For those who prefer sweet romance with a touch of humor, Her Handyman is your kind of book. Be amazed at what happens when Jake, the handyman, answers a routine call about a bathroom flood in the middle of the night. The sight greeting him is a Flower Child lookalike clutching a pathetic-looking guilty dog. The seventies throwback is far different than his sexy, perfect fiance'.
Removing a dog toy from a toilet should be a simple matter. Who'd guess fate would step in and cause chaos?
My KDP Select freebie promotion last weekend for Girl of My Dreams turned out to be all it could be, with a final tally of 16,465 in the US, 3024 in the UK, 388 in Germany, 39 in France, 12 in Spain, 10 in Italy and 84 in Canada!
At one point this book reached #13 in Free Kindle Books!
