Free GiveAway Weekend Success!!

This past fourth of July weekend I released the fifth books in my serial, Into the West: To Save Them All, and as I have done in the past, I also had a giveaway of Into the West: A New Home - Special Edition. I love doing this together because the special edition has both part one, Into the West: The Orphan Train, and part two, Into the West: A New Home in one download. This gives new readers of my Into the West Saga Serial an introduction to the saga and will hopefully entice them to buy the other books in the saga. 

If you want this special edition and you missed out on the giveaway, fear not! You have two choices. One, you can go to Amazon right now and buy this edition  for about $2.99 depending on the country you are in. Two, you can wait until the release of part six, Into the West: Last Showdown when I will once again giveaway the special edition for the first two days of the new book's release. I will do better next time and advertise this more in advance of the giveaway. 

If you got the book this time around, thank you so much for helping this giveaway be such a success and helping to put Into the West: A New Home - Special Edition on so many of the Amazon Best Seller lists. I never could have had this happen without YOU! Thank you!

#41                         #16

I received word the first book I ever wrote for myself is now a finalist in the 2019 TopShelf Indie Book Awards. This is extra special to me as this is the first contest into which I have ever entered my writing. To have my first book become a finalist in the first contest I entered, it is beyond thrilling! 

The good news just keeps going. The judges were so impressed with my book, they nominated it for the 2020 TopShelf Indie Book Awards because they thought it deserved a second chance to win first place. Maybe you should get your copy today and see what all the fuss is about. 

October 26th & 27th, I gave away the eBook version of Into the West: The Orphan Train free on Amazon.com. My book quickly made it onto the Best Sellers lists in not just one but in two categories. The book topped out at #41 in American Literature, #16 in Westerns, and all the way to #1,023 in all free eBooks in the Kindle Store. Considering how many eBooks are available everyday in the Kindle Store, that is an incredible achievement and I would never have been able to do it without the support of my followers! Thank you!
