Another Book. Ho-Hum

 Honestly, there is that "Ho-hum" aspect to it after thirty-plus books. I enjoy the writing and the editing and the putting it all together, but as RAINING CATS AND CATS gets closer to being ready for the world to see, I have to start planning promotions and hyping my work.I'm not very good at that part.

First, I simply can't lie and tell you it's the best book you'll ever read.

Second, I get tired of trying to grab readers' attention when 30,000 other authors are doing the same thing, every month, all year, every year.

I've tried all the things "they" tell you to do to sell books: ads, blog tours, review sites, street teams. I haven't seen much evidence that any of them work. My LEAST touted book, THE SLEUTH SISTERS, became my best seller ever, all by itself. Books that I promote broadly, stories that I think are great reads, sit at only a few hundred sales.

That makes it hard to get excited about hyping the next book, but here goes:

To celebrate the release of RAINING CATS AND CATS in June, I'm making the first book of the series, CATS AND CRIMES, free for the month of May.


*NOTE: Amazon doesn't like free books unless it's in Kindle Unlimited, so I had to set the price at 99 cents. When the algorithms "see" that the book is free everywhere else, it will adjust. Crazy, I know!

CATS AND CRIMES Everywhere else:

 I'm pretty sure my fans will like Lorilee Porter and her band of cats, so once you read Book One, you'll want to pre-order Book 2. Here's where you can do that


RAINING CATS AND CATS Everywhere else:

The book will be available in paperback, of course, and audio will be along sometime this summer.
