Product Description
Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Problem with Paid Promotion
« on: March 14, 2017, 03:14:13 PM »
I paid for a discovery and audiobook promotion for my novel Eve's Hungry.  Both were supposed to be displayed today, but I can't find them anywhere.  (Only older promotions for other books.)  Who should I contact?

On the bright side, after seeing this post I checked out your book and bought it, which is something I haven't done in a while (no time to read for pleasure these days, alas). In fact, I accidentally bought the "Classic Cover" edition for $3.99 instead of the sale edition at $0.99 but I don't even care. If the Look Inside is anything to judge by, it should be awesome - and I say that as a diehard Google/Android/PC type person! (c:  You had me at "We're Evil. Get Over It." Hope you get lots of traction!!

Oh, goodness!  Sorry you bought the expensive version.  Long story as to why I have two.  I'm trying to straighten that out.  Hey, can I make it up to you with a free audiobook?  I'm trying to give away a few codes.  (The audiobook is awesome!)

Funny about the Google/Android thing, I think Larry and Serge come across very lovable (even when trying to be evil).  Their scenes kind of steal the show.

Mackay,

We've sent a flare up to the advertising side of the house--someone will be in contact with you shortly, I'm sure.

Best,

Betsy

I just got the email and checked out your audio. I like your narrator, but I'm afraid it's not a genre I generally read.

Just wanted to let you know the email with your ad definitely went out.

Thanks!  Good to know.  Tess did a terrific job narrating the audiobook.

I'm seriously not sweating it in the slightest - I only mentioned that by way of saying I was perfectly content to pay the higher price for it, because it looks to be just that good. (c: Nothing to be 'made up for' at all!

Hope you get good results from the promo!

Thanks!  Funny you mention the pricing, I don't seem to sell any more ebooks at 99 cent than 3.99.  But I guess as a first time novelist I'm still not completely comfortable charging the higher price.  Thanks for the input!
