One of my faithful readers, novelist Heather Justesen, is having a wonderful week full of giveaways over at her blog this week. Check it out here.
Heather is the author of the newly-released, The Ball's In Her Court, and she's got another book coming out this summer. Gotta love that. Here's a brief summary that I snitched from her website (in the interest of promotion, I don't think she'll get too upset with me):
got a great job, a loving group of family and friends and basketball
skills like you wouldn't believe, but Denise DeWalt's life is far from
perfect, and she's about to come face-to-face with a past she hoped to
leave behind forever.
Twenty-six-year-old Denise thinks she's come to terms with her childhood in the foster
care system, but when her old nightmares return, Denise realizes that
she must deal with her past once and for all if she ever wants to move
on to a brighter future with Rich, the only man who can see past her
former life. As Denise's search leads her closer and closer to the one
person she hoped she'd never have to face again, she begins to realize
that her future depends on just one person–herself.
emotional and inspirational love story proves that life is full of
unexpected twists and turns–especially when it comes to facing your
demons, fighting for love, and finding happiness for the future
It has come to my attention that this blog is now available for subscription on your Kindle. (I hope that you, unlike me, are lucky enough to have one.) Not only that, but yesterday this very blog reached best seller status, achieving a rank of #16 on the Lifestyle and Culture Kindle Blog list. As my daughter used to say when she was a small child, exigun! (That's "exciting" for those of you who do not speak small-childese.) It gives me the merest hint of what having a best-selling book must feel like. Note I said merest hint.
Of course, by today Wordstrumpet was down to #30, alas. And no, I'm not checking the stats every half hour. Only every hour.
I have absolutely no idea how the blog got picked up by Kindle or how long its been available or what the true sales figures are (for all I know having one subscriber could make it a best-seller). At the moment I'm trying to figure out if Amazon has connected my blog with my Associates account so that I can collect royalties.
Just as with regular books on Amazon, readers can write reviews of the blog on Amazon. Poor little ole Wordstrumpet has no reviews yet. Nary a one. So if any of my loyal readers want to post one, I'd be very grateful. The link is here.
And for anyone reading this on a Kindle, give me a shout-out. I'd love to hear how the text and images come through. And thanks for subscribing.
Stay tuned for my end of the year wrap-up and look forward tomorrow.
