Check it OUT!
Just when I needed to hear it! Ms. Mes, you really do need to pick up a copy of Trailer Trash if you want more of Sam and Cowboy! They were a wonderful help to the heroine in the story. So much so, that Sam stood up for the bride!
Check out the review!

By accident today, I came upon an Amazon reviewer who has done well over 100 reviews.
I saw one particular review she’d written for a book I was considering and thought it harsh. Actually I was trying to decide if I would get this book from the library or buy it. I’m way over my Kindle budget this month, after two more purchases yesterday. And it’s a pricier book which is part of a series. The review was brutal!
So I looked at some of the other reviews given by this person. The first two pages were nothing but 1 Star reviews. Occasionally, the reviewer would give a good review, but about 80% of them were beyond brutal, even telling people not to buy the books, over and over again. This was an eye-opening experience for me. After reading so many despicable statements about author after author…I don’t believe anything this reviewer says.
I just pray he or she doesn’t pick up one of my books. I was more suspicious of the 5 Star reviews. Now I need to rethink this. Maybe I need to look closer at the STARS or ignore them altogether.
However if she ever does give me one of her zingers, I think I might even smile about it. I’d be in good company.
Why buy a boxed set? IMHO, if I buy a boxed set and find 2 or 3 authors that I haven’t already read and their stories make me want to read more…that is win/win! As most of you who read my posts know…I’m in a box set that is now available for pre-order and will be released in just three short weeks. Unconditional Surrender
I just read a post at a popular, gossip gathering place which I’m not naming, because there’s too much negativity there for my taste. This business is hard enough without hearing bitching from people who haven’t walked in an author’s shoes.
This week I also heard a published author say that 99₵ books are the downfall of the publishing industry. That is one heck of a negative sweeping statement for which I’d like to see the proof. Show me the numbers please.
I buy lots of books…I’ve bought lots of 99₵ books and downloaded lots of free books from Amazon. I have “discovered” authors I would never have read otherwise! Having spent more than 50$ just last month alone…I have freedom of speech! I’m showing MY numbers, 99₵ Haters! Most of what I spent was acquiring series because I found a deal on the “first” book.
I also have the beginning of a series that I’ve offered for 99₵ Cactus Creek Cowboys. Any other book on my list that is 99₵ …it’s that price because it’s a SHORT story! If Diane Gabaldon sells a 12oo page book at $4.99…come on! Why would I over-price my 17,500 word short? When I release a longer book, I’ll price it accordingly.
Here’s your chance to tell me how wrong I am. Go for it! If you don’t want to do it here…email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
