FIREFLIES is Free on Kindle until October 23, 2018.
A couple reviews:
5 Stars: “This novel is a beautifully written work of love, family values, and a soulful connection to the spirit world. It reflects the time when countless migrated to the US to escape hard times in their own homelands . It shows how fragile life was then, and how through love and prayer almost anything is possible. The characters become your friends as their lives entwine with the spirit world and their day to day existence. You laugh and cry as Ennis leads you threw his short but meaningful life, only to feel goose bumps as the novel concludes. Definitely a must read”

If Fireflies could make it to the #1 free Kindle book on Amazon, that would be the best birthday present I could get!

How about a Valentine’s Day treat?

Yep! It’s true! I love Valentine’s Day!
As an indie author, what good is writing all of these books if I can’t get them into the hands (and ears) of readers? What better way to encourage readers to take a chance on my work? If I’m not willing to do whatever is necessary to find wonderful readers, then why have spent thousands of hours writing my stories?
“Stories are just strings of words unless someone reads them.” P.S. Bartlett
Here it is!

At the end of the FREE promotion, I’ll do a random drawing and notify the winners on Sunday February 18, 2018.
Dr. Owen Whelan and his wife Sarah have seven bright and expressive children. However, one of them is very unique; he’s been followed since birth by lost souls.
However peculiar Ennis Whelan has been for the first six years of his life, not until the day he found the bird did the degree of his strangeness become so tangible.
Ennis claimed it flew away.
His sister Teagan was about to bury it. Teagan becomes increasingly suspicious of his odd behavior, but their mother dismisses her claims; that is, until he starts healing people.
When he also reveals the gift of sight, he questions his father about visions of his past, including his father’s voyage to America in 1844. Owen prayed he’d never have to share those tragic memories, but he will when he realizes he has no choice. Ennis’ life depends on it.
Monday July 10, 2017, I began giving six of my novels away on Amazon Kindle.
I try to run some sort of promotion every six months. Last year, I ran the promotion over the 4th of July holiday with just okay results. I spent a good deal of time planning this promotion over a month in advance and began scheduling ads on various book advertising sites that also send out email blasts and have a great many subscribers.
I applied as well for a BookBub feature but yet again (for about the 10th time) my book was not chosen. Believe me, I know there are authors who’ve submitted ten times that so the rejection isn’t anything new and certainly not personal. That isn’t what makes me anxious.
It’s the personal amount of advertising I do here on my web site as well as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Believe me, I’m working it with all I’ve got! Then periodically throughout the day, I check my stats on KDP to see how it’s going and then my ranking on Amazon. Can you say STRESS?!
Meanwhile, I’m trying to work my day job, be normal and not think too much about it. Ha! As if that’s going to happen. I’m a writer. My brain doesn’t ever shut off, even when I’m asleep.
I’m trying to stay optimistic but to be honest, I’m just not seeing the results I’d hoped for. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. The best you can do is stay optimistic and be grateful that at least your books are getting out there. At least with what little budget you have, you’re doing something to try and reach your goals.
Two and half more days to go! I’d love to hit 10,000 downloads by Midnight Friday. Would you like to help me?
All you need to do is share this post and magic could happen!
