But Kindle e-Books do.
So when Cindy discovered her treasured glass slippers had a crack in themâ€¦ow! It was time to get a new pair.
And that’s whatâ€™s been happening in publishing. Itâ€™s time to embrace new and different ways of getting our books to readers. Thatâ€™s where the Kindle Scout program fills the gap. As Iâ€™ve discussed in previous posts, itâ€™s been an amazing journey for me since I started my campaign with LOVE ME FOREVER, my Civil War time travel romance.
Last week I danced in my slippers when LOVE ME FOREVER went on sale.
Amazon sent me an email with the screenshots, showing LOVE ME FOREVER PR. My book was in the first slot on page one:

Facebook Launch Party
The Kindle Scout Authors did a 3-hour Facebook party. It was amazingâ€¦you can read all the comments and see what happened here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1755873821306210
Time travel is my favorite genre, so I was thrilled to hit the Kindle eâ€“Books>Romance>Time Travel Top 100 list several times. Hereâ€™s a graphic I made:
But most gratifying to me are the reviews:
“This is one of the best time travel historical novels I have ever read. I was hooked from page one. The descriptive scenes of the Civil War battles are so realistic that you find yourself imagining you are actually on the battlefield. I highly recommend this book.”
“Gripped me from the first page and wouldn’t let go until I finished the book HOURS later.”
“Rich in history and social issues, Love Me Forever is both deep and emotionally compelling. Another fine read from a Kindle Scout winner.”
What’s next for me? I’m writing the sequel to LOVE ME FOREVER, “Love Me Always,” where we meet up with the offspring of the one of the heroines and send her off on her own time traveling adventure!
Thanks for coming along with me on my journey.
I’d love to hear from you. You can find me on social media:
