The Perfect Christmas/Holiday Gift

Are you searching for the perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer for a friend or loved one who adores cats? Why not give them a gift they can enjoy while cozying up to a warm fire with a steaming mug of coffee, hot cocoa, warm cider or even a chilled glass of wine.

This Christmas, give them a paperback copy of my little holiday book, A Very Furry Christmas: Holiday Cat Tales (2016 Royal Palm Literary Award Competition – Finalist)

I guarantee * they’ll remember your kindness long after the holiday season and long after the last page has been read.

Don’t believe me?

Well, don’t take my word for it; check out all of the wonderful comments left on Amazon by readers who have already enjoyed the book…..then make your own decision.

A Very Furry Christmas – Reviews on Amazon

The great thing about, A Very Furry Christmas is that it’s enrolled in the Kindle Match Book program.

What does that mean for you?

If you buy a new print edition of A Very Merry Christmas ($5.99 USD) you can download the Kindle Edition for FREE.

The only stipulation is that the print edition must be purchased from Amazon.

Think of the possibilities. You can give the print copy away as a stocking stuffer to a family member, friend or pet lover and still keep the free Kindle Edition for yourself.

It’s like a buy one, get one bargain.

Of course, you can decide to keep both for yourself and just buy a new copy for someone on your holiday gift list. In either case, it’s a win-win situation.

Incidentally, since all of my books are enrolled in the Kindle Match Book program, this deal applies to every one of my paperbacks.

Happy Holidays Dear Readers!

NOTE: * Author has been known to exaggerate. 🙂

Comparing eBook, Paperback and KENP borrows

Lately, I’ve noticed an increase in the number of articles being posted on the internet stating that the sale of eBooks is decreasing compared to the sale of physical books.

I don’t know if that’s true overall, but what I do know is that, that statement doesn’t apply to my sales figures as an Indie Author.

When comparing eBooks, Paperbacks and KENP borrows, here’s what I’m seeing in terms of sale percentages.

78% – eBook sales

14% – KENP (KU/KOLL) – Kindle Edition Normalized Pages (KENP) read by customers who borrow my books from Kindle Unlimited (KU) and the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (KOLL).

8% – Paperback sales

I’m sure that everyone’s figures are different, but I’d be curious to know what percentages other Indie Authors are experiencing in terms of book sales.

Close, but no cigar!

For the 4th time one of my books or stories has been a finalist in the Royal Palm Literary Awards (Forida Writers Association) and for the 4th time, I’ve walked away empty handed.

I  know that writing is not about receiving awards, but I’d be lying if I told you that I wasn’t disappointed at walking away from this year’s awards banquet without an award.

Anyway, rather than gloat, I’ve decided to celebrate my loss by offering my readers a wonderful deal on my latest ebook, A Fool for Love & Money. 

For a limited time the book will be on sale from Amazon for only $0.99 (reg $2.99)

A Fool for Love & Money – Amazon

Please take advantage of this great deal while it lasts.

Thank you for all your support and I sincerely hope you enjoy reading the book.

Cheers!

2019 Royal Palm Literary Awards Banquet

Dear Friends

I’m very excited to be attending the Florida Writers Association annual banquet this weekend, where my short story Blame It on the Weather is nominated as a finalist for a Royal Palm Literary Award (Short Story Genre).

I’m also looking forward to picking up my copy of Writers at Work, the 2019 Annual Florida Writers Association Collection of Short Stories which (for the first time) includes one of my stories, Elevated Madness.

Win or lose, this weekend should be a great time.
