These days authors are expected to do all of their own promo.   This is unbelievably time consuming, time that should be spent writing, and very often nets a small return.  Or no return.   I don’t know the solution.   I’m doing the best I can to figure out how to acquire more/new readers and book buyers.

I’m told one way to do that is to put a lot of e-books out as fast as you can.   I have a lot of e-books out, 10 of my 14 Harlequin Intrigues are now in e-book format.   Midnight Cowboy, Eden’s Baby, Alias: Daddy, Little Girl Lost, The Bride’s Secret, The Best-Kept Secret, The Runaway Bride, Prince Undercover, Sentenced to Wed, Denim Detective.   But from the royalties I’ve received, it appears no one is reading these book.  Since Harlequin released these as e-books I must wait until May and Nov each year to see sales figures.   So far, I’m not impressed.

(If e-books are your preferred reads, and you haven’t read the above books, you might like to know these are some of my favorite stories.)

I’m only sure of the sales on the two books that I’ve put out, (so far) as e-books, The Wedding Necklace and Endless Fear, because I have the power to check out the sales any time I like.   They are not selling well.  Yet.  Maybe they never will.   The free promo for The Wedding Necklace netted 1121 free downloads and 1 sale after the promo.  But I’m not giving up.   I have a brand new FREE PROMO!!

ENDLESS FEAR will be FREE for 3 days, Sept 13-16, 2012.   The book has 5- five star reviews.   It’s a suspenseful book set on a spooky island.  Think REBECCA with a twist.  🙂

If that isn’t intriguing enough, perhaps the cover will whet your curiosity.   Enjoy.

    I love the cover for Endless Fear. I like to support fellow authors so don’t mind purchasing the book but free is good too so I’m making a note to download it tomorrow.

    Thank you Adrianne

    Hang in there. I have loved all your books, and am enjoying reading one again as an ebook. Been so long since I read it when it came out I have forgotten the story. How nice! I get to love it again! We look forward to anything you write. Now I have a daughter hooked too!

    Wow, Adrianne. I’m a cover-lover and that cover is EXCELLENT. I would take a second look just because of how powerful that cover is. Well done!
