99 cent eBooks to attract readers….

December 19, 2011 at 7:12 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

……I have reset the price of my eBooks ata Amazon.com to $0.99 USD.

This is so that my titles will be more marketable – maybe i can gain more a readership this way?

That is my hope.

It was a questions of smaller numbers of sales with larger royalties or larger numbers of sales with smaller royalties, and STILL trying to build up a readership for my Shades of Grey series of books.

Plus, at $0.99, I think it will attract a lot more readers willing to give me “Uknoan Author” a try.

Here’s to trying!

Sincere regards and Happy Reading!

Getting Lucky I: Pedro & Eddie (Interracial Erotica)
When Katherine is nagged by her friend to buy a lottery ticket, she doesn’t expect that anything will come of it.
The curvy artist’s immediate thoughts are that her sensible ancestors would roll over in their graves at news of her folly and that she would have been better off using the five dollar bill to wipe her butt than to spend it on something as foolhardy as a lotto…
The five dollars turns out to be quite the investment: she wins the New York Tax Free Mega Millions Lottery in excess of $130 Million!
It seems as though life will never be the same!
Shortly after she claims her winnings, Pedro, the lotto authority’s sexy Hispanic makeup artist, shows up to polish her looks for the press conference.
Pedro is as gorgeous and well-hung as he is horny…and he has propositioned her on the spot.
It would appear that her good luck is holding!
A few days later, at a party celebrating her big win, she is propositioned by her chocolate skinned lover from college.
A friend with benefits, Eddie has felt neglected for some time now…and he has no intention of taking “no” for an answer!
Getting Lucky I is Volume I in a series following the adventures of Katherine, the instant millionairress who enjoys men, women and pleasures that span entire continents.

The Deal (Paranormal Erotica)
Alessandra had an unwelcome visitor last night.
The incubus, Daragon, was intent on forcing the author into a soul-binding contract that she has no intention of agreeing to.
Last night, she resisted his temptations and his torments, but only just…
When Daragon comes to Alessandra for the second night in a row, he puts the same deal before her.
Will Alessandra be able to deny him a second time?
If she’s able to decline, will he give up and move on to another victim?
Her very soul is in jeopardy if she gives in to…The Deal.

Product Description

Book Two in the Shades of Grey Series
When Crystal Grey, a teenager with dark secrets, disappears from her Vancouver home, her family is tormented by questions:
Where has Crystal gone? Why hasn’t she returned? Who is she with? What is she doing? Why did she leave? When is she coming back?
Involved in the drug trade and running with a fast crowd, Crystal is now being exploited by some very sinister people – facts that the Vancouver Police Department are reluctant to reveal to her family.
Her sister, Eve, refuses to sit idly by and watch her sister become some kind of statistic. However, the strain of the situation is taking its toll…
You see, Eve has a few dark secrets of her own.
Secrets from the past, secrets born of madness and violence that whisper seductively to Eve in waking and in dream, calling her to action, calling her to punish the people who have hurt her baby sister, who are using her for their own criminal gain.
These nightmarish voices, thought to have been silenced by a team of mental health professionals years before, seem as though they are back and more vicious than ever before.
Will Eve give in to their siren song and take justice into her own hands? Even if it’s at the cost of her very sanity?
This anger inside of her is so wrathful, so unnatural, so all-consuming, so…hungry.
Sometimes, she just doesn’t feel like herself…
….sometimes, it’s as if she doesn’t feel human at all…
Look for Book Three ~ Shades of Grey: See No Evil in January/February of 2012
The Shades of Grey Series:
Shades of Grey: Prologue (November 2011)
Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil (December 2011)
Shades of Grey: See No Evil (January/February 2012)
Shades of Grey: Speak No Evil (February/March 2012)
Shades of Grey: Epilogue (March/April 2012)

Pulled Sahdes of Grey: Prologue from smashwords.com

December 12, 2011 at 8:45 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

So…

Sorry guys!

I am pulling my Shades of Grey series from smahwords for lack of promotional tools…

One sale in almost two weeks does not bode well for the series at that publisher.

Lowering the price didn’t help either.

As a consolation, it can be downloaded FREE from amazon.com on December 13.

http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-eBooks/b/ref=sa_menu_kbo3?ie=UTF8&node=1286228011#/ref=sr_st?keywords=amanda+m+holt&qid=1323718234&rh=n%3A133140011%2Cn%3A!133143011%2Cn%3A!251259011%2Cn%3A1286228011%2Ck%3Aamanda+m+holt&sort=price

Thank you for your ongoing support as I find my way with this self-publishing trial.

Sincere regards and Happy Reading,
