Tooting My Own Horn...So Shoot Me!

Today, I'm promoting one of my own! I just released The Unicorn's Daughter via Smashwords today, which means it's now available for all e-readers! From now until February 28th, it's free! Just use this coupon code: SP26W



It's also available in paperback (as well as ebook format) at Amazon, for those of you who still like their books the old-fashioned way. Unfortunately, I don't have the free book option for paperbacks. I'd even have to pay for my own copies!

  2. You are always so busy, I feel like such a slacker.
    Good news on the paperback... I just bought Second Hand Shoes and now I will zoom over to Amazon and hit the Buy with one click button.

    The Square Ones send woofs !
    cheers, parsnip

  3. It's a tremendous read, Norma. You did great writing this, and the cover really fits it more than the original edition.

    1. I knew you'd like it--even though when I asked which of the books you'd like to read first, you chose Angels at Midnight, I would have bet this one would end up your favorite!

  4. Congratulations Norma! What terrific news! I hope you get to kick back a bit and celebrate (and I echo William - love the cover too:). Checking out Amazon next.

    1. Thanks, Lulu--to show you how little we earn off the paperbacks, I just got my statement from Create Space, which prints them. $14.00/copy for a paperback--I made $.95. Compare that to $2.99 for the ebooks, for which I get 70%.

  5. Can't take advantage since I got this a while back! Nice it's in paperback for those who don't have Kindles or other ereaders!

    1. I go back and forth on this. They are print on demand, so there's not a bunch of books sitting in a warehouse somewhere...but formatting them is really a PITA.

      Still, when I get messages like I've gotten here, from people who want to buy them...how can I not do it?

    1. This was always my favorite of my "old" books, so I was anxious to bring it out again. I am so grateful to have regained all of my rights!

    1. The ebooks do really well. It's usually feast or famine--bursts of lots of sales, or none for a while. But that's okay.

    1. Thanks, Grace! I'm considering doing a mass market paperback edition so I can put it at a lower price.

    1. I guess we don't look TOO bad when we occasionally cut loose, do we?
