Ah, yes...yet another politician who can't keep it in his pants, this one in my very own home state of New York...
New York Governor Eliot Spitzer Under Pressure to Quit Over Sex Scandal
No wonder women read romance novels - at least the men/the heroes in the pages of those stories stay faithful!
On another note, I received my royalty statement from The Wild Rose Press yesterday, for Nov/Dec 2007. Let's just say it wasn't what I had hoped or thought it would be, regarding sales. In fact, I was really surprised. One Night in Boston sold nearly 10 times the number Lost in Paradise did, in the two months after it released! I'm not sure how to take that...Samhain has more purchasers/followers/marketing than TWRP? People wanted to read my first novel but not my second one? It's a little discouraging.
I know it's dificult to promote e-books, and in the last few months I've been doing marketing more with an eye toward the print releases. I've also used up my "Debut Author" angle with the various newspapers I sent press releases to, so I'll have to think of something else.
Guess it's back to the drawing board with a renewed focus on promoting Lost in Paradise, this week. And hey! If you're reading this blog, and you haven't gotten your copy yet, why not think about treating yourself this week? It's gotten some great reviews, and for less than the cost of lunch you can purchase and download it here. By the way, the story is set in the middle of summer...nice and steamy and warm, for all of you who are tired of the winter weather already!!
