The last week kicked booty, y’all. Hell to Pay launched on Saturday March 26th. Late that day, its Thunderclap released, to an audience of nearly 500,000 based on the social reach of its more than 350 supporters.
By Monday March 28th, it was a #5 Hot New Release on Amazon.
Bookbub sent out 1500 release announcement emails. Amazon sent out many, many thousands of the same.
Meanwhile, we moved the first of Emily’s books, Heaven to Betsy, to free in e-book form, and it went to #1. Yeah. Without a Bookbub promotion either.
We’ll be leaving it free for the foreseeable future to encourage people to move on through the What Doesn’t Kill You series past Katie and on to Michele and Emily. Wish us luck, and let your friends know!
This week and next week are a landslide of launch “events” online. So only two more weeks, and then my relentless self- and Hell to Pay-promotion will end. The event this week is Community Bookstop. It would be awesome if you could visit and comment/share. It lets the book bloggers know they make a difference and how much we appreciate them getting the word out about new books.

Finally, if you get a chance to read Hell to Pay or any of my other books, I hope you’ll do me the honor of leaving an honest review on Goodreads and/or the sales site of your choice.
Now, shhhh, don’t tell, but I’m off to Hollyweird to an invitation-only pitch event to link authors of female protagonist crime novels with producers looking to do adaptations. I’ve bitten off all my fingernails, y’all! (Thanks, Sisters in Crime!)
I am blessed, and I appreciate all of you. Thank you so, so much for helping make this “girl’s” dreams come true.
