A BookFunnel Promo

The Ins and Outs of a Promo

I’ve nev­er before joined a Book­Fun­nel Pro­mo, in fact, I think they are rather new. This one runs from Octo­ber 1 — 7, 2019, and is for cozy para­nor­mal mys­ter­ies. Hey, I can do that. I have a cou­ple of books with ghosts and one with an imag­i­nary cat. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, there are only eight books signed up, so it prob­a­bly won’t be a big suc­cess. (Just how much can you make off of a 99 cent book? Some are even free.) But it does­n’t cost a cent (oth­er than the annu­al amount to use Book­Fun­nel). And, I get to play with canva.com to make a visu­al. Which I did, as you see above.

The title of the pro­mo is Witch­es and Wolves, but there are no books includ­ed with wolves. There’s a haunt­ed ship, a dog that sees ghosts, a psy­chic cat, and a col­lec­tion of both witch­es and ghosts. Oh, yes, if you want to take a look, here’s the link to these cozy mys­ter­ies.

I like to write my blogs for read­ers, but some­times I include some­thing for writ­ers. Okay, this could be con­sid­ered for both audi­ences, right? Tomor­row is my day to pro­mote this to my newslet­ter. (That’s for read­ers.) I’ll do the wrap-up after this is over. (That’s for the writ­ers.)

I’d love to hear any com­ment about my blog, or my stu­pen­dous, won­der­ful, took me all of 15 min­utes to make visu­al. Okay, it was fun, any­way!

An Historic Blog Visit

I love to vis­it Suzanne Adair’s blog, Rel­e­vant His­to­ry. There’s always some­thing new to learn about his­to­ry. Her guest blog­gers tell some of the unknown sto­ries, that hap­pen to be true, about var­i­ous times in the past. All that his­toric … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Goodreads Giveaway

Cherish-FrontI’m run­ning a Goodreads give­away through Octo­ber 7, 2014. Cher­ish (A Ghost Mys­tery) takes place in cur­rent time, and in 1946. (Things like that hap­pen with ghosts, you know.)

Sign up for the give­away here.

Read the first two chap­ters here.

It’s the sopho­more Local His­to­ry ceme­tery vis­it. Sure, it’s almost Hal­loween, but Kay­la has seen that teen-age ghost for years. Why won’t she leave? When the dreamy senior asks Kay­la for a date, she decides to prove to her­self that she’s mature and in charge. She’ll tell that ghost to go away. But Kay­la should­n’t have touched the ghost’s cold hand, because that’s when every­thing changed.

Sud­den­ly, it’s 1946, or is Kay­la dream­ing? Is she crazy? Why is her name Cher­ish? Why is her moth­er at home bak­ing cook­ies when she should be at work? And, she has a father? Didn’t he die years ago? Why is her best friend Trudy instead of Dani? And the thing in her pock­et is not a com­pact with a bad mir­ror. DON’T TRY TO OPEN IT!

Text mes­sages do trav­el across the years, judg­ing from those on her cell phone. But why is Dani mad at her? She isn’t there, is she? It can’t be, but it must. Some­one is tak­ing Kayla’s place in the twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry. Who?

Fact: Cher­ish is ruin­ing her life in two cen­turies. If Kay­la does­n’t find her way home to her own time and her own body, she will die in 1946 with Cher­ish.

Cherish on Pre-Order

Cherish12-1-2013-Front-400Ama­zon has a new pro­gram, pre-orders on e‑books for self-pub­lished authors. I could­n’t miss that with my new book. So Cher­ish is list­ed here. The e‑book will be avail­able on Sep­tem­ber 10. The paper­back page will appear (and be on sale) Sep­tem­ber 1, 2014.

Here’s the blurb: It’s the sopho­more Local His­to­ry ceme­tery vis­it. Sure, it’s almost Hal­loween, but Kay­la has seen that ghost for years. She wants to make the ghost go away, but she should­n’t have touched her hand, because, That’s When Every­thing Changed.

Kay­la finds her­self in 1946 as some­one else, some­one whose name is on an elab­o­rate tomb­stone. Is she Cher­ish, or is Cher­ish her? Is Cher­ish tak­ing her place?

Fact: Cher­ish is ruin­ing her life in two cen­turies. If Kay­la does­n’t find her way home to her own time and her own body, she will die with Cher­ish in a few days.
Ques­tion: Do cell phone texts span the cen­turies? And, if they do, will Kay­la’s friends believe her?
