Well, yeah, worse has definitely come to worst. Scammers on Amazon
The other night I was just tooling around the best-seller lists on Amazon. In multicultural I hit #30 before I found a real author, then it was another couple dozen or so before I found another one.
If you pre-ordered Oh, What a Christmas and/or Christmas Wishes & Kisses from Amazon you did not get the entire file. There were changes made that for reasons we don’t understand did not go through. THIS IS FOR THE PRE-ORDERS ONLY.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but in order to get the corrected books, you’ll need to return and then re-buy them. Again, we are so sorry this happened.
Hold on to those pre-order receipts and we’ll make it up to you on the next book in the series, Putting the EX in Christmas. Again, this is for the pre-orders only from Amazon. All other copies of the book are fine.
Oh, What a Christmas
Christmas Wishes & Kisses
Don’t forget, Hot For Teacher will be on sale at ARe through midnight on Cyber Monday. All my ARe books are on rebate there, so now is a great time to pick up my backlist.
Also, Loose Id has one of the historicals that Lisa G. Riley and I wrote, Given, on sale for .99! That’s $5.00 off. you van’t beat that. This book is one of the best we’ve written. Don’t miss out. #LIHistoricalHysteria.
I have a strange and painful relationship with reviews. Initially I paid them little to no attention as I felt as a writer they’re not for me, they’re for readers. Then I had a baptismal by fire when someone commented on another writer’s work on Amazon and said that I must be paying reviewers to denigrate that writer. It’s been five years and that still stings like it happened yesterday. Not only is that a violation of my own personal honor code, it’s beneath contempt. Since then I went back to ignoring them until recently. I understand that readers like to read reviews from other readers–I do too, so I get why they’re important. Unfortunately, there are some very petty people out there. If you don’t like my book, hey, I have no beef with that. My style is not for everyone. However, one reader over at Goodreads one-starred all my books because she didn’t like the review I gave one of her fave authors. (Yeah, I know that’s nutty as hell, but hey anonymity give folk the freedom to commit all manner of fucknuttery.) This would be fine, except that I don’t have very many reviews for some of my books. Even if you have three five star reviews a one-star review can make major impact. I’ve done many things in my life, but I don’t think I’ve ever written a one-star book. So once again I’m asking that if you’ve read my book and enjoyed them, please do me a favor and review them at Amazon or Goodreads. You can also review at ARe and Fictionwise if you bought the book on those sites. Word of mouth sells more books than all the advertising and promo in the world and I’ve been loath to ask, but please, please, please do everything you can to help me in this regard. Facebook and Twitter are good as well and posting them on your blogs would be great. Again, thank you ever so much.
…and other third party vendors. I know some of you prefer to buy at sites such as Amazon, ARe and FictionWise, that’s why I get so excited when my books become available at the third party sites. Of course, they’re always available at Loose Id as well. For those of you who’ve read Buttercream (or any of my books) do me a massive favor and review them at Amazon or Goodreads. It makes a huge difference. Remember a review can be just a few sentences. Thanks for your help.
