Well, the Goodreads Giveaway for Keeping Secrets is over. There were 1100 entries by the time the contest ended. I have the names of the five winners and will be mailing them their books by the end of this week. Congratulations to all of them!
The book is now available (a day early) at Amazon in both paperback (Createspace) andKindle. You can also access direct links on this blog on the right side bar of my main blog, as well as on the Novels page of my website.
Indie authors like me rely on their ratings and reviews, so if you enjoy Keeping Secrets, please leave a review at Amazon and/or Goodreads. It can be the same review if you like. It’s not necessary to write two different ones. The more reviews an author receives, the higher their rating and the higher they climb in search engines. The higher the book is in search engines, the more exposure it receives.
I must admit, having a book finished that you really can’t do anything more with is a bit intimidating. (I can make small changes through Createspace and Kindle, but nothing major.) It was a little bit troublesome to set it aside and move onto the next one. However, I did start writing Breaking Promises in earnest yesterday. I am excited about what the future holds for David and Annie. I hope those of you who have read or will read Keeping Secrets are anxious to find out what happens to them as well.
My goal is to make Breaking Promises even better than Keeping Secrets. Thanks to Robin Matheson’s classes through Romance Writers of America last January and February, I have a good start. I told her last year that if I got the second book published I would dedicate it to her, as she helped me through a particularly rough patch in my plotting. I will make good on my word by the end of the year, God willing!
Again, congratulations to the 5 winners of the giveaway, and blessings to you all!
