(You can read my previous posts about my experience with the Kindle Scout program by clicking on Part 1 ,Part 2 and Part 3.)
Glass slippers donâ€™t last foreverâ€¦
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.
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!
