I am SO thankful …

27 Nov

A gift ...I am so thankful for the many people who have invested in reading my books.

How thankful am I?

So thankful that I’m going to give you something in December that is better than a free book.

No, sorry. Yes, I’m talking to you, the one in the Jayne hat. Yes, you. No, not a new season of Firefly. Even I cannot do that.

This is better.

“A new car”? Come on, give me a break. On what planet is a car better than a book? A book can take you places no car can go.

Um, no. Absolutely not. I’m married. And I think I’d better stop taking questions.

You’ll just have to wait for it.

But it’ll last all December long, and I’ll tell you about it … Sunday. Or maybe Monday.

Golly, it’s like coming to the end of The House in the Old Wood, isn’t it?

Another freebie?! Yep

The House in the Old Wood coverAt midnight tonight, the Kindle version of The House in the Old Wood returns to its normal price, $4.99.

That’s not bad, but nothing beats free, right?

I want to take this opportunity to again thank folks for sharing the word, and for downloading the book. By the second day of the giveaway, your response exceeded my wildest expectations, in number of downloads and in making Amazon’s Kindle Top 100 Free list.

Sometime overnight The House in the Old Wood slipped back off that list, but it was there for three days, which is three more than I expected.

And for that, I thank you.

I will endeavor to reward your interest, help and friendship with books that are worthy of your investment of time and money. I trust you’ll find that the next two books in the series, Karia’s Path and The Hall of the Prophetess, live up to that promise.

Thank you

It’s a list that just about every Kindle owner looks at, at least once.

The book sits at #39 as I write this. Thirty-nine. Wow.

I am so grateful to you.

  • I am grateful to the folks who shared and posted and told others about my free ebook.
  • I am grateful to the thousands of people who have downloaded The House in the Old Wood.
  • I am grateful for all the reviews, which helped people decide whether to download or not.

Can I just say I am flat-out humbled by your support for me and my writing?

I never expected to see my book reach so high. I was hoping for a large number of downloads, but we’ve already surpassed the number I was hoping for. And so I thank you for helping put The House in the Old Wood on Amazon’s Top 100 Free Kindle Books list.

I hope that you, my readers, are enjoying the journey as much as I am.

I wanted to throw you all a party, but, well, with the downloads being free and all, the only entertainment I could afford was this guy …


Free ebook
