Reaper as an audiobook???

June 25, 2013 at 7:40 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have to ask…

…would it be a wise move to create audiobook versions of my Reaper Series and  Shades of Grey Series?

Hmmmm………

Very tempting.

Especially since my boyfriend is an audio whiz…..

Any feedback would be appreciated!

*Reaper VIII and Shades of Grey IV in progress, approx. 75% done!*

Sincere regards & happy reading,

Reaper I – V: The First Collection ~ Download it for FREE tomorrow!

February 28, 2012 at 10:14 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

…….I just programmed the first FREE promotion for Reaper I – V: The First Collection at Amazon.

You can get this 127,000 word volume FREE February 29 (Leap Year, as I promised certain individuals) and March 1, 2012.

What exactly are you downloading for free?

The Kindle collection of Reaper I: The Beginning, Reaper II: Neophyte, Reaper III: Rookies, Reaper IV: Daddy, Reaper V: To Skins!!!

And just what is Reaper?

A better question to ask is, what is a Reaper.

Or better yet, who is the Reaper…

Visit the link at  http://www.amazon.com/Reaper-First-Collection-ebook/dp/B007ET7UZ8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330467037&sr=8-2  for the book blurb, to view the first few pages, and whatnot.

As always, sincere regards and happy reading!

Reviews needed and appreciated! Feedback valued!

January 20, 2012 at 7:47 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So….

…….Reaper I: The Beginning has moved about 11000 free copies on Amazon and Reaper II: Neophyte has moved about 9400.

I am thrilled, amazed and humbled by the reader response!

Reaper: The Beginning currently sits at #1 position on Amazon.com Free->Occult listing! #76 overall for Free

Reaper II: Neophyte is sitting at — TAH DAH!!!! —- #2 position on Amazon.com for Free->Occult!!!! #88 overall for Free

Thank you thank you THANK YOU everyone who helped to make this possible!

One small request?

If you have read what you downloaded, please log in to your Amazon account and leave a review — whether “good” “bad” “positive” or “negative” — your feedback can/will only make me a better author in the long run, will likely serve to improve the quality of the novels/novellas I release and also serve to tell me what my readers love/hate most about my ideas and writing style.

It’s one of the ways i get to hear back!

So far, some of the themes reviewers are leaving are:

– stories are too short

– plot is great

– characters are believeable/likeable

-too much vulgar language

– not sure if target audience is teenagers or adults

– authentic thriller

– too much detail in description of flowers

And assorted other things.

Suffice to say, I am reading all reviews and carefully taking each one into consideration as I plod forth.

Once I finish releasing Reaper 1 – 5 as single titles, I am going to release Reaper 1 – 5 as a compilation at a discounted price, to try to alleviate some of the readers’ frustration with the novel length.  I will also work on making the series pieces longer, as this seems to be a frequent concern. However, for Reaper 1, 2 & 3 in particular, there is method to my madness — I wanted them to be DISTINCTLY seperate from the rest of the series…..I will try to adapt Reapers 4 & on to be longer. The thing is, where I see a naturally occuring break in the storyline, that is where I intend to seperate the tales….

I can’t please everyone, but if you leave me your reviews, I will try to make appropriate changes to my system of delivery….though not to my vision or my characters whims, such as they are.

Thank you so much for your continued interest in my projects!

Sincere regards and happy reading!
