Product Description

Denny O'Callaghan is afraid to open his eyes.

He'd been out drinking last night with the guys, and his head throbs, his arms hurt, and he can't remember what he's done.

He opens his eyes. Blood. On his sheets. His pillowcase.

Then he gets a call: his ex-wife was murdered last night.

He desperately tries to piece together what happened. But he can't explain how he got the scratches on his arms, the police want to know about the domestic violence report his ex filed against him, and his buddies say he was raging against her last night before he stormed off on his own.

Right about the time she was murdered.

Take advantage of this introductory low price!

Thanks, everyone :) I'm working on some tweaks to the cover, and some final editing checks before I go ahead with the launch, but I hope to be ready to go in a few weeks. I'm hoping we hear some good news today for those in the waiting room!

Jennifer--

the cover of The Doctor is calling to me--but I only see it on Amazon.co.uk, not Amazon.com?  Or am I missing it?

Anybody else finding it difficult to concentrate on writing the next book while your campaign is in progress? Seven days left. Then more waiting...

Hi Betsy :) I think my signature link is just set to UK, but it's definitely on US too. I think I can post the link here (sorry, admin, if I'm not supposed to) -- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EX5ZORC. It's a YA Paranormal, Psychological Thriller. Not really a 'mainstream' YA thriller novel, but I think it's a fun little story. But, then, I'm probably quite biased!  :P

I couldn't concentrate on anything other than refreshing the Scout page and this thread.  :o

Nominated Cloud Chasers & What I Left Behind. Both sound great!

Also, it doesn't look like I'll get the 100 supporters needed for Thunderclap so I started a Headtalker campaign where only 25 supporters are necessary.

Here's the link to the Headtalker. Please help.

https://headtalker.com/campaigns/the-things-we-do-for-love/

For what it's worth, this is the Thuderclap link.

https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/57116-the-things-we-do-for-love

Added my support. I don't think I'll get to 50 on my Headtalker, should have done 25. I'll add mine here if you wish to check it out. I've been adding everyone's books as my slots open and supporting all that I can through Twitter as well. Add me if you haven't already and I'll tweet as often as I can. Thanks to everyone for your continued support. This is one anxiety filled 30 days and beyond. I'm so thankful for the advice and new friends!

Do you want to share it in a single post, or in your signature (like mine are)? Either way, if you're still stuck let me know and I'll PM you the code you need tonight :)

I seriously am an idiot with this, trying to figure out the signature. I love how great everyone else's posts look with their books. Maybe I need the Cliff Notes version of how to add your books to this group. LOL. Much help is needed... THANK YOU.  :-[ :-[ :-[

Impossible for me. Whenever I run campaigns they consume me. This time around I'm hoping to keep busy with the next book in the series, but I already know from previous experience that I'm going to fail!

Yes. Me. I've been trying so many different things to get going, but ultimately my eyes are drawn back to my campaign and the kboards.

I think we all feel that way from time to time, but I don't think the data you're displaying shows that Amazon is flushing you. Yes, there are peaks and valleys, but I think most of us have those, so unless we're all getting flushed, there must be some other explanation.

From what I can tell, Amazon author ranks are very volatile, and sales have a relatively short half-life. The system is really set up on a "What have you done for me lately?" kind of basis. Small dips in sales can produce a noticeable drop in author rank. Keep in mind also that author rank isn't based on your data but on everyone's.  Your sales might be pretty close to consistent, but if a whole bunch of other authors are having big new releases with huge publicity pushes at the same time, you might see a dip from that.

Take heart from the fact that your recent valleys seem higher that your older ones, as do your peaks. You look at the stats and see Amazon arbitrarily flushing you. I look at the stats and see an author who is gradually moving to a higher level. For most of us, that's as good as it gets. There are a few people whose sales suddenly explode, but most people on the upswing move up only very gradually.

Hi Bill
Somone replied on FB with a n excellent explanation regarding the 'links' out there as it pings to Amazon when a link is posted  so during a promo.... Good day to all Dan

Hi Nikki,
Added my support.  (you may want to throttle back the number of supporters needed as if you dont reach 50 nothing really happens)
Good Luck
