That's right! The children's book that Aurora and I wrote together, is not available in both ebook and Paperback on AMAZON! I am so excited for her! I've decided I would split the money with her, the money she earns will go into her new savings account and the money on my end will go into the next book in our Zombie Dragons series. It cost money for illustrations, yo!
It's finally here! The second book in The Hunt series, The Chase, is finally available to read on Amazon! $3.99 or Free with #KindleUnlimited Yesterday, day two of it's release, it was on the Top 100 Paranormal Vampire Romance list on Amazon. At about noon today, it fell down to 115. It was fun while it lasted though! The pre-orders, which capped out at 95, surely helped it's rise.
It has already been reviewed a couple times by two book tubers, and I can not wait for you all to read it yourselves. In case you're still on the fence, here is a review from Jenn from The Book Refuge, on The Hunt, posted this morning on her Book vlog. Her review of both The Hunt and The Chase can be found on Goodreads as well.
It’s been an exciting couple of weeks. The Hunt gains more and more fans by the day. The highest number of pages read, two days ago, was 8,364 and the average book sales every day is 2-3 a day. This is so much more than I could have expected from my first YA book. My first book, Descending Into Darkness is not nearly as popular. I hope to pick up some more traffic with that one soon, just have to work on the marketing for it.
On top of that, my mom and I have an Etsy shop where she and I sell my Angora wool and her finished handmade quilts. In the last 5 days, we’ve sold 4 quilts and four batches of wool. My husband and I have gone through our garage and cleared it out. It was a mess of boxes and stuff that needed to go to either the dump or storage. We still have some work to do, but it is so much cleaner, which really pleases my inner OCD.
Right now, I am working on marketing, Christmas prep, surviving snow days with my kids being home from school, luckily just 2 so far, and tinkering with a new script and the next book for Descending. I might dabble with the outline for the last Hunt book too. December is going to be a slow month for me because of the holidays. I don’t want to give myself deadlines except for editing The Hunt so I can get that out to you guys as soon as possible.
Thank goodness my husband has been home more in the evenings. At least to help out with the kids bedtime. It’s been such a relief on my sanity, let me tell you. The kids seem happier as well. They missed seeing their dad more than just for the length of a bowl full of cereal gave them.
I know I haven’t been very active on this blog the last few months but I have honestly been trying to focus all my time I’m allowed to sit down away from my kids on writing projects, so I’m sorry about that. But I wanted to let everyone know I appreciate the amazing support on all the things I’m doing. 😊
In case I’m not on here again until the new year, Happy Holidays and I love you! ❤️
It’s finally done! I finished the first draft of The Chase! I am so excited and relieved to have it done. I wanted to have a script done before the year was over, too, but I don’t think that will happen. I need a break and with the chaos of the holiday school breaks coming up, I should probably forget trying to even attempt to finish a project. That said, I have added a paragraph to Transcending (Book 3 Descending series) and I’m considering working on the script I started a couple months ago. Maybe both, just at a slower pace this time around.
The illustrator has gotten back to us with a sample art and its just not the right age group we are looking for. I’ve asked that she tweak it just a little to fit an older age group. Right now it looks like its for pre-schooler readers and I would like for it to be more for 2nd-3rd grade readers. I expect it to be ready for publishing come Spring. I sent it out to a few young ARC readers and have only gotten back positive feedback. It would be so awesome for the book that originated from my daughter’s imagination could do well on Amazon and maybe her school library.
Now, off I go, to work on what, I haven’t decided yet.
Check out what people are saying about The Hunt! It’s also been rated on Romance.IO !!!
Have you read it yet? What did you think?
You read that right! The Hunt is now at the Ye Olde Bookshoppe in Wenatchee, WA.
Their website and info is here: http://www.yeoldbooks.com/
Drop in and say HI to Anna. Guys, they have so much more than just books. Tarot card readings on Fridays, handmade gifts and one of a kind finds. I never made it back to the “Man Cave” but I will be checking out the rest of the store the next time I visit. It is so big!
And, yeah, that’s what she said. 😉
If you do stop in, take a selfie and tag me!
Howdy everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted but that’s because I’ve been writing like a mad woman on the sequel for The Hunt. I am so excited with all the next characters that are being introduced. I love writing their POVs and can’t wait to share them with you.
A few new things to share on here with you all.
That’s right! Summons got 3rd Place at the Boobs and Blood Horror fest. Eeeek! That’s the highest placing it’s gotten so far.
Descending Into Darkness and Ascending Into Light are both in paperback and I got my first author copies!
ANNNNNDDDD.... GET THIS! Yesterday I took a copy of each to the local library and spoke with the librarians there. Barring issues with the final director of all things books, my books will be added to their catalog. Super excited and proud of myself for approaching them to do this. I even had my children in the kids sections running amok with my parents. They aren’t terrible, but with Korben being autistic he has no volume control and well, there’s a baby, she’s just loud. LOL
I am having a short story edited right now and should have that available on WATTPAD to read for FREE. I really like it as it’s not necessarily a romance, though there is romance in it, it’s mostly a drama of a refugee race finding peace with their new home. I wrote this at least 6 years ago and someone didn’t like it, so I never did anything with it. They also didn’t like The Hunt, and well, we know how that’s going now... sooo.... I’m just going to put it out there and if people enjoy it, great. Again, FREE! 😃
That’s it for now. But before I sign off, I want to thank everyone who has supporting me, the books and reading them. I appreciate you and love you all for it. Thank you. ❤️
