Small Business Saturday!

 

Hey, readers! The Black Friday weekend sale is still here! And today is extra special because it’s Small Business Saturday!

Last month, I sent my newsletter subscribers one of my famed surveys, and guess what I found out? The #1 reason you listed for shopping directly with me is because you LOVE supporting small business. 

As a small business owner, I constantly hear the slogans about “shop small!” etc., especially this time of year. And as a socially-conscious Millennial, I myself love to support small businesses. But until now, I had no idea that supporting small, independent creators like me was important to you, too. I’m really touched by your dedication. THANK YOU.


#ShopSmall with today’s top picks!


With that in mind, I thought I’d pull back the curtain a little and show you how things work when you shop directly with me:

When you shop on my website, not only do I receive more revenue, I also get access to the funds way faster. Interesting fact: It takes Amazon two months to pay out, and Ingram, which distributes to libraries and retailers, takes four months. But when you shop directly on my website, the money is deposited in my bank account the very next day. This makes it quicker and easier for my business to adapt to circumstances–which has been super important in 2020!

Of course, no matter where you get my books, you are still supporting my business. I may have to share proceeds with other players sometimes, but I’m happy to make my books available to you wherever you like to get them. (In fact, need the link to Amazon? Here it is! Shop on Amazon. Just keep in mind that the Black Friday Sale is only happening here on my website!)

But it’s because of this love you show me year-round that I like to hold this annual Black Friday Sale here on my website. It’s my way of saying THANKS to you. Thank you for buying my books, for talking about them non-stop to your friends, and for keeping in touch with me via this blog, Facebook, and my newsletter.

Your support means the world to me!

Black Friday Sale Holiday Shopping Guide

Guys! It’s my biggest sale of the year! Back by popular demand, everything in my bookstore is 30% off. Time to get your holiday shopping done!

Her name was Bailey. All she wanted was a family of her own. Instead, she found a body at the end of the pier…

Feeling overwhelmed as you browse my online store? No worries! I’ve put together a handy shopping guide so you’ll know exactly what to get your friend or loved one.

And remember, I can autograph any paperback copy, gift wrap it, and ship it to the recipient’s door.

Shopping for a friend or family member?

Get them the boxed set! All three books in the series-so-far will keep them thrilled and enthralled to help them pass those winter nights. And psssst… don’t forget to add the prequel novella, too, if they’re extra-hungry readers!

Shopping for a young reader?

The Mailboat Suspense Series is appropriate for ages 13 and up and the perfect place to start for that young bookworm ready to delve into adult books. My kid readers are avid fans! To see if they like it, buy them the prequel novella, The Girl on the Boat. Or if they’re constantly running out of reading material, buy them the boxed set! But to make it complete, definitely add a silver helm necklace, just like the one Bailey has in the books. My teen readers are in love with these.

Shopping for YOU?

No shame, I do this too! (I mean, c’mon, the deals!) You might try the two latest books in the series, The Captain’s Tale (Book 3) and The Girl on the Boat (the prequel novella). You might also try the ebook editions and get them on your ereader NOW! And want to hear a secret? Pre-order Book 4 at the lowest price you’ll get ever and make all your friends jealous! (Or better yet–order for all your friends, too!)

I hope that helps you with your holiday book shopping this year. Remember, I can autograph paperback copies, gift wrap them, and ship them directly to the recipient’s door. I’m happy to make your holiday tasks easier, especially in a year like this one.

Need help with your order? No problem. Just contact me and I’ll do everything I can to help. I answer emails and package and ship the orders personally!

Until I hear from you, Happy Holidays!

Just a reminder, here’s today’s bestsellers!

Halloween Flash Sale!

Watching Trick-or-Treaters from Afar? Grab Your E-Reader!

Happy Halloween!

I have to say, I’ve been looking forward to tonight since… Late August? I mean, 2020 has been a roller coaster, for sure. But lucky for all, Halloween is the most socially-distanced holiday we have. It’s outdoors; you can leave your candy in individually-wrapped baggies lined up on your front step; and no one is hugging anyone.

And me? I can’t wait to leave reality behind for a night and fly six feet away from the kids while dressed as a witch! (Photos to come in my newsletter! Subscribe now so you don’t miss them!) Also, I have NO idea what Charles is dressing as. I’m terrified.

Since Halloween will be a little different this year–if you’re taking part at all–I thought I’d provide you with a book to read while you maybe peek through windows at the little ghouls and goblins scooping treats off your front porch.

Did you know you can buy ebooks on my website, too? That’s right! I don’t just sell paperbacks. And Frankenstein-ly, my ebooks don’t get nearly as much love as my hard copies. Time to bring them up from the grave!

So to tempt you into giving them a try, all my ebooks are 15% off this week! You can download to your Kindle or Nook or literally any device you own.

My ebooks are ghosted away to your device via BookFunnel, a friendly service readers love! They’ll hold your hand from the beyond, walking you through the process of getting my books on your ereader, no matter what kind you have.

Any issues with your download? Just reach out to these helpful spirits–they’re waiting to communicate with you. You can email them at help@bookfunnel.com or call to them via their help page. Failing that, you could try a ouija board, but I’m not guaranteeing the results…

Are you reading this after Halloween is come and gone? No worries; I’m keeping this sale alive through Friday, November 6th so everyone has a chance!

Good luck, Happy Halloween, and I hope you enjoy your treat!
