Update on my Amazon test as mentioned in the post Curiosity Forces Me to Try Something Different:
I don't think that bold little Amazon sale price really has a whole lot to do with Amazon Kindle book sales. Not for me, anyway. Of course, it is difficult to accurately test this theory when one is left two negative reviews. Sometimes, overly nasty negative reviews can make readers curious. Hmm. Now that those plagiarized reviews have been removed--Thank you, Amazon!--we may get a more accurate test.
Oh, July's sales were higher than June's but nowhere near March's. (I'm not revealing actual numbers quite yet.) :o)
On another, related matter:
I realize e-books are really only just starting to gain momentum as a preferred reading format. I participated in the recent sale at smashwords.com, offering 50% off my Regency novels. Well, I've decided to go one step further since that sale ended. I lowered the price to $2.95. (Old price was $4.95.) No coupon codes necessary.
For those of you unfamiliar with smashwords: The books offered on smashwords are available in several formats including Kindle and PDF. Each book can be previewed, too. For absolutely no cost to you, you may read the first 50% of each of my books for free.
Happy reading, writing, and blogging!
England 1816. Bri has been running for years. Just when she thinks she may have escaped those pursuing her, she finds herself thrown into Newgate Prison...where Adam finds her. Hired by Bri's family, he is determined to return the heiress posthaste. When it becomes clear that her family does NOT have her best interests at heart, she must accept Adam's help, something her pride will not allow.
England 1820. Retired actress Raven agrees to pose as a missing noblewoman/fiancé of an eccentric duke. If caught, she could lose her life. Her reason is simple curiosity about her employer, Lord Windhaven. His plan goes far deeper than merely hiring an actress to play a role. He suspects something is not right with Raven. Then the duke's brother arrives, threatening to reveal Raven's identity.
England 1820. The Duke of Derringer must marry within five days. Disgusted with his father for such a stupid codicil, he vows to marry the first woman he meets. That woman is Leandra Harcourt, illegitimate daughter of the late Earl of Harwood. Derringer marries her, refusing to admit he's helping her more than himself. Meanwhile, some disobliging soul wants him dead.
1821. Lady Jenny is the pampered, beloved daughter of a duke. Becoming a little jaded after several Seasons, Jenny flirts shamelessly with the newest rogue to grace London, Dare Prestwich. The situation gets out of hand, Dare flees, and Jenny must face judgmental Society alone. The one left to pick up the pieces is Dare's twin, Miles, who is in love with Jenny's twin, Gwen. Oh, the scandal.
