Blow the Trumpets, Bang the Drums!

I have sold in excess of 100,000 copies of my books! 

When I uploaded The Merry-Go-Round to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords back in January of 2010, my only wish was that a few people might get the chance to read the book that Harlequin purchased but never published. (The publication rights were returned to me when the book line that The Merry-Go-Round was slated for, NeXt, folded.) THEN I realized I could request the pub rights of eleven other novels that Harlequin had let languish.
As many of you know, I've been slowly updating, editing, and expanding these novels. I've either designed new covers or had them designed for me. I now have seven romance novels for sale at different markets (Apple iBooks, Sony Books, Kobo, Smashwords, B&N's Nook Store, and Amazon's Kindle Store).

Being in charge of every aspect of my new 'business' of selling my own books has been difficult and time-consuming (this deserves a brand new,  made-up phrase...time-swallowing...LOL), but it's also been the most exciting, the most rewarding, and the most lucrative accomplishment of my writing career.

I would like to thank all the readers who have purchased, read, and left good reviews of my books. I also need to thank all the wonderful bloggers who have posted reviews, author interviews, and conducted contest giveaways. And I can't forget to thank my team of editors, copy-editors, beta readers, cover designers, and friends who have been so helpful in making this new venture a rousing success!
