I'm doing another free giveaway for my paranormal romance/thriller Soul Bonded. If you like werewolves and a supernatural romance with plenty of hot sex, this one is for you. Free on Sunday, March 23rd and Monday, March 24th, regular price $3.99. This is book one of a planned trilogy.

If you're in the mood for a little literary romance this Valentine's Day, go grab a copy of "Soul Bonded", my paranormal romance/thriller, for FREE today on Amazon Kindle. The Paranormal Romance Guild gave it 5 stars, calling it "a very sexy novel with two very sexy characters."

Eek. As a reader, I would be pretty livid to be deeply immersed in a story only to get jarred back to reality by a plea to buy dish soap. Especially if I was at a "good part" of the book (if you know what I mean). No! Not okay. lol

As an author, I believe in being good to readers. Shoving advertisements in their faces in the hopes of earning a few pennies more is not being good to readers. It's my hope that enough authors agree that this idea quickly dies off as it becomes clear that ad-supported books will drive readers away rather than generate extra revenue.

This thread has convinced me that I need to read the copy of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon that has been languishing on my Kindle for far too long. I always see the book mentioned in these types of discussions (which is exactly why I bought it), but I've yet to find the free time to get to it. It's my before-the-New-Year resolution!  :)

I admit that I do judge books by their covers. At the very least, a cover has to look professional for me to buy the book, unless I happen to have a personal recommendation from someone whose taste I trust. Whether it's fair or not, I tend to assume that the quality of the book itself is at least somewhat parallel to the quality of the cover. Even if I don't particularly love a cover design, as long as the fonts are chosen with care, high quality images are used, and attention is paid to making it look well put-together, I'm happy.

If I see a book cover that looks like someone with little knowledge of graphic design put it together, I rarely give the book a chance. That kills me, because I know darn well that there are probably plenty of great books with unfortunate covers, but sadly, the whole first impression thing is super important when there are so many books competing for my attention.


Warning: This title contains graphic language and sex, and is an erotic romance.

Feeling terminally single after a weekend in Lake Tahoe with happily coupled college friends, Katie Connelly makes the ill-timed decision to drive home during a violent snowstorm and ends up stranded on the side of a deserted mountain road. On the verge of death after days without food in the freezing cold, Katie wakes up in the cabin of her mysterious rescuer, a dangerously sexy man who is clearly keeping secrets. Afraid for her life after overhearing a troubling conversation between Rafe and a neighbor, Katie decides that escape is her best option...even if it means venturing out into a blizzard, in the middle of nowhere, alone.
In the woods alone, Katie finds trouble almost immediately. When two werewolves attack and nearly kill her, Rafe comes to her rescue a second time--and a deadly secret is revealed. Faced with an earth-shattering truth about the man who keeps saving her life, Katie realizes that while she is no longer terminally single, she is in terrible danger. The death of one of her attackers threatens to trigger a pack war on the eve of the full moon, forcing Rafe and Katie to stand and fight for their lives--and for a passionate, soul-stirring love that neither of them can explain.
Caught between two worlds, a werewolf and a human discover the consequences of being soul bonded.

The Kindle ebook is available now for $3.99!

I opted to go for a "low" price of $9.99 on my Createspace print edition, with a royalty to me of roughly $1.50. To be perfectly honest, I'm assuming that most of my sales will come from ebooks anyway, and my strategy at this point is low price = higher volume. The reality is, I'm still earning about the same this way as I do with my traditionally published print books!

That said, I'm reserving the right to totally change my mind later. :)
