It’s All Good News!

The cover for Sunshine Hunter has been updated. Hurray for no more gym clothes! Image

We’ve come a long way from the first cover:

ImageMy niece has done a wonderful job for me. I was delighted with my first Susan Hunter cover, and I’ve been delighted with every cover in between. I think we’re both getting better at what we do. 🙂

My next big news is that I’ve decided to make Sunshine Hunter a FREE book – permanently.  Now that there are five books, with a sixth on the way, I think having the first book in the series for free is a good move. I’m finding that many people who have read the first book have gone on to read more (if not all) of the books in the series.

ImageI’ve already made the cover change and the price change at Smashwords. You can go there and download the book for any eReader (to be sideloaded) – or to read on your PC. When the book is approved for their premium catalog in a few days, it will be distributed with the new cover and pricing to all of their outlets – Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony, Apple, and Diesel Books.

Amazon doesn’t allow me to list the price as free, but they will match the price when the other outlets have updated to free. When the changes have been made everywhere, I hope to do some fun marketing.

I’m looking forward to a good year!

Edited to add: A few minutes before 6:00 p.m. today (15th), the changes to Sunshine Hunter were approved for the premium catalog at Smashwords. Less than 24 hours! That was so fast! It will be going out to major outlets soon.

  1. You already know I love it. Did you find me that dress for $35 yet? Would you mind if I post this on Twitter? I’m sure my followers would love a free book, and maybe they’d get the others too! Hoping to finish number 2 myself this weekend. 🙂

    • LOL!! Cutie crabs, indeed! To be honest, I don’t know Mel other than to see her here and there, and I wasn’t aware of the campaign until you posted it today. That’s ok … I’ll make my way into some of these cool events eventually. 😉

    • You and your “by.” I fixed it for you. 😉 I love the dress, too. It’s modified from one I found online. However, Susan had the dress in her closet when she packed for Florida, so who knows where she bought it. I can’t keep track of her most of the time.

    • Huw, if I didn’t have my niece, my covers would be stick figures drawn in crayon. My mother doubles as editor and proof-reader, and my sister proof reads as well. I’m so grateful for the help my family provides.

      • Wonderful things families. Mine includes an architect, a doctor, mining engineer, landscape gardener, mathematician, loud speaker designer etc – great skills but no use to me at all!!

  2. I finally got around to reading your books. Yes, all of them. I downloaded one to read last week and went on to buy them all.
    This is not my usual style of book, there were no vampires or werewolves and I don’t do mystery. I would never have picked them up if I had not read your blog and been nosy.
    But, I have to say thank you. Brilliant, funny light hearted reading – perfect for a weekend chill. I really enjoyed them.
    I also like your character. Susan is girly, again, not my usual read. But also kick arse. Good to know that you can be both – I think more girls out there should learn that. I like that she is a normal human, she makes mistakes, she gets moody, she is funny. One of the things that struck me the most was that she had fallings out with people. You know, like normal people do and book heroines normally don’t. Shouting at the nosy old lady in the supermarket for spreading rumours of an orgy – very funny.
    Thanks for the great read. I’m sorry you are my doing 6 books, but start working your next theme pleas because I want to read them all. Expectations are high now. 🙂

    Ooh, I think you prompted me to write my 1st ever book review too!

    • Piper! I am almost speechless! Thank you so much for reading not just one of my books, but reading the rest, too. The fact that you liked them and pointed out specifics as to why means a lot to me.

      I was heading up to bed last night at about 3:30. I came back to my desk to be sure I had everything turned off, and checked my notifications one last time. I read your comment then.

      I was like a giddy schoolgirl! Your comments were the best review I’ve received yet. I grabbed my tablet, hustled my husband off the sofa and up to bed, and then promptly read your comment to him. He was delighted, too. Then I was wound up and chatty, and it was nearly 5:00 a.m. before I drifted off to sleep. I think I’m going to need a nap today.

      But you’re the best!! Thank you again. 🙂

  3. Your Susan has the looks and style that would just fit right in on the Goldcoast, very GC they call it over here. Thank you for letting us have a book for free I look forward to downloading it.

  5. The new cover is fantastic! Love it. =D Also that is definitely a good marketing move. It would give potential readers more incentive to check out all your other books. Clever thinking, Maddie! 😉

    • Hi Robert! I’ll be stopping by this weekend to catch up with you; I’ve been away from blogs for a bit. … Thank you for the kind words. I am really happy with the cover, and making the first book free has been a smart move. Talk to you soon!!

    • Hi Maggie! I’ve been away from blogs for a bit and missed your comment here. Thanks for stopping in. I love the new cover and think it will really help the books. Hope you are well and staying warm! 🙂
