Twilight’s Encore, book 3 in the Wounded Hearts series, is on #sale until September 12th!
Every month I submit one of my books to BookBub in the hopes of scoring one of their career-changing Feature ads, and usually I get a ‘sorry, we only accept a small number of stories turned in’. I can understand that, they receive thousands a day, but still, I persevered and voilà… they said yes!
It’s set to go out in their international (not USA this time) newsletter on Sept. 10th, so I hurried over to KDP to lower the price, thankfully remembering I couldn’t do a Kindle Countdown Deal as it doesn’t lower in countries outside the US, and found I had to manually lower the price for Canada and Australia to make it show up as $0.99. I admit to being paranoid about it because on my last BookBub Feature I paid for international as well as US and assumed the Kindle Countdown Deal would carry over, but it didn’t and I was out that money. Lesson learned.
Or so I thought.
A couple of days later, I receive an email from KDP saying :

Now, don’t get me wrong, I appreciate their care and attention to detail, but I was on a time constraint and really didn’t need this right now. I sent them photos of my book sitting in KDP, my ISBNs at Canada Library And Archives, and even a photo of the book files in Dropbox dating back to 2015. Their answer?
We need more time to look this over and reach a decision. We will get back to you within five business days.
This email arrived just before the Labor Day weekend. I was officially hyperventilating now. I’d stacked other promotions around the BookBub date and arranged multiple newsletter swaps with other authors- all of which were in danger of flopping. Short of begging, there was nothing I could do but wait it out and pray to the KDP gods.
Thankfully, the next day, it was straightened out and everything is a go- whew! Moral of the story; don’t wait until the last minute to prepare, it’s stressful, lol.
One man’s betrayal will seal another’s fate.
Ty Garrett fell in love with Katy Fowler from the moment they’d met. When her father’s betrayal yanks the young couple apart, Ty becomes bitter.
After a decade away, Katy returns to Tidal Falls with plans to get married in her family’s theatre. But she hadn’t expected to run into Ty Garrett, the boy she’d never forgotten.
When a series of sabotages wreak havoc on the theatre and danger threatens
Katy’s life, can Ty save her and win back her love, or is it too late for
these star-crossed lovers?

“You find that hard to believe, right?” he grumbled.
She glanced up, her mossy green eyes soft with affection. “What?”
His fingers wrapped around the steering wheel before he did what he craved. Bury his hands in that silken waterfall of hair, drag her close, and see if her neck was half as soft as the cat’s. “That anyone would want to stay with me of their own volition?”
Katy frowned. “What are you talking about? I was teasing, Ty. Don’t make this into something it’s not.”
Words to live by.
