I think somebody today read my freebie "Beth" (on SW) and decided to buy my three other romances. All three sold at exactly the same time, so I'm guessing the reader just loaded 'em all up into their cart, and ba-zing! They're not in a series btw, totally unrelated to each other (except for the romance element). Does that happen a lot? If not, don't tell me.  ;D

That's how it's supposed to happen! In practice, I find it's rare for people to scoop up everything across-series lines, but it happens sometimes and it is really great!! Congratulations.

Definitely congratulations are in order!!! YAAAY!

This happens to me a lot.  

I am a slow seller (yeah, I know, weird eh? Doesn't help being a two-time Nebula Award Finalist), but whenever someone discovers my books, it's like a light goes off, and suddenly I see a bunch of my books (or all of them) sell a single copy across the board, and then someone blogs a gushing review and says I'm their new favorite writer...

And then nothing sells for a long, long time. :)

*sigh*

Congrats!! That's gotta be a great feeling.

Nothing that clear or obvious has ever happened with my books, but I'm fairly new at this. It does make sense though. If I like something enough, I would probably go ahead and treat myself to the other books by the same author.

Same here! I wasn't selling anything for several days, and suddenly bam, someone from Canada snapped up all three of my flashcard books. Shows that series work in nonfiction as well! But then, now I know not to expect any sales for another week :)

Well, I cant offer up a "wheee" or a "tee-hee" or even a "squee" to your thread, but I will share a "fist-pump" with you because, I experienced the same thing lastnight..congratulations.  Here's to hoping we have many more days like that.  ;D

Congrats, Anne!  Very cool.

And THANK YOU for not using SQUEEEEEEE.  God, I hate that.  It sounds like a rodent getting it's guts run over by a bicycle or getting burning acit poured on them.  One thing SQUEEEE doesn't sound like is happiness. I"d like to take whoever started SQUEEEEEE in chat rooms (it didn't start here) and hang them over a campfire until they - you guessed it - went SQUEEEEEEEE.

lmao! I don't like the term either, but DAMN! Are you writing a murder mystery by chance? Maybe with a cannibalistic antag who roasts his victims over petty annoyances in their personalities?

I promise no character of mine will ever say "squeeeeee!", no matter what is happening to her.  ;)
