Welcome to the Drawing Room

Hello! I assume you are here desiring an audience with Lord Heartless? He is out at the moment but I anticipate his return at any time. Until then, find a comfortable chair, settle in, and enjoy a spot of tea. Browse through the available reading material, learn what you can of the heartless duke, and decide if you really want to meet him. Please leave your calling card in the form of a comment.

It was lovely to see you! Please stop by again.

***Please BEWARE*** If you have yet to read Heartless, certain aspects of the story may be inadvertently spoiled for you here. Please take care while exploring.

The Heartless Paperback

Heartless is now available in paperback!! YAY!! It's in several Amazon stores worldwide and I've linked each and every one of them on my website

Here's the print cover, in case you're interested in seeing it:

A bit of Heartless cover trivia: 
The pink fringed tulip from the original cover (and now the back of the new cover) was one my mother gave me from her garden to brighten up our house a bit a few months after we moved back to Michigan. I thought it perfectly represented Hart's love for Leandra, beautiful but rough.

Adventures in KDP Select (Part 3)

Wow. My first free days were completely nerve-wracking. I forgot to eat, didn't want to sleep, neglected my kids and my husband—only remembering to feed any of them when they complained—and felt like garbage physically the whole two days. That said.... 

WHAT A RUSH!!!!!! 

Screecap of Amazon's Top 100 in Historical Romance lists

Heartless peaked in the US Kindle Store at #1 in the Top 100 Free in Historical Romance (shown above) and #14 in the Top 100 Free in the Kindle Store (shown below—sorry for the HUGE pic).

My final download counts:
  • US: 12,415
  • UK: 1062
  • DE: 344
  • FR: 15
  • ES: 8
  • IT: 14
  • JP: 1 
Grand total: 13,859 downloads worldwide. Besides that, 31 copies of my other books sold in the two days Heartless was free. (That may not seem like much to some of you more successful writers out there, but for me, that's AWESOME!) I think I can count this as a successful two-day promotion, don't you?
