    @TerryTyler4 Neither have sold well. Given away tons of free with KDP Select. But few reviews. I wonder if editing is poor + that's why. :(

    @LolasReviews I was silly and did KDP select. I won't again. Amazon should let you do a refund if you're w/in the first 7 days.

    Using KDP Select? Works best when loss leader leads to more books.

    Collin and I are going to ring in the holidays and the new year with some big changes. On Christmas Day, we'll be doing our last free ebook promo at Amazon before exiting KDP Select to branch out. Early in 2013, our books will also be available for Nook and other ereaders. I'm launching a new series of sorts featuring Jaime (The Unicorn's Daughter) and Darcy (Chasing the Wind) in romantic adventures. An Army of Angels will finally be published with a brand-new, very striking cover courtesy of Collin's brilliant graphics, and he'll be publishing ELE (finally!). I also have two romantic comedies in the works. We might even finally get our new websites up!

    The rest of my books have been paroled by the state of KDP Select and are now available on Nook and Kobo. First thing they wanted when they got out?? McDonald's.
  15. Finally, a pitch for anyone wanting to learn at the feet of classic fiction storytellers... (Yes, that's an epub. Paperback available in 2 sizes as well.)
