If you pay any attention to the goings-on at Amazon, you’ll notice that a lot of authors are merging books into collections/anthologies. These are great deals for readers. Most collections are just .99! Wow. “What’s up with that?” many are asking. “Why would so many authors give away stories for just .99 per collection?” Doesn’t make any sense, does it? Wouldn’t an author have to be a little cray-cray to do this?
I can’t speak for other authors, but the method behind my madness is simple: this is a fun and inexpensive new way to get my stories into the hands (and hearts) of readers who wouldn’t otherwise know my name or my books. Bargain-hunting readers pick up the collections at Amazon not really know who or what they’ll find inside. Many times they’re surprised to find amazing authors they’ve never even heard of! The collections I’ve chosen to join are filled with authors I love and respect, so I feel comfortable pitching the collections to my readers. And I hope to gain new readers, too! Hopefully, by the time these new-to-me folks have bounced their way through my story in the collection, they’re ready to click the link I’ve provided at the back to direct them to my other books. If so, I’ve won over new readers!
So, what collections am I in at the moment? Which books do I recommend? Here’s my current list (and thanks in advance for hopping over to Amazon to check them out)!
Currently sitting in the #1 spot in Amazon’s Collections and Anthologies section you’ll find my most recent collection, Table for Two! If you’re keen on candy, coffee, baked goods, BBQ and/or Mexican food, you’ll surely love this restaurant-themed collection with several of my favorite writing buddies. Mmm! The stories will have you hankerin’ for good food. . .and love!
Another best-selling Amazon collection, one I’m very proud of, is Immeasurably More. In this six-in-one anthology you can join six bestselling contemporary Christian authors on unique journeys that paint vivid portraits of God’s immeasurable love and grace. What precious stories these are! I’m so blessed to add my story to the mix.
I’m so very blessed to have one of my Texas historicals in another best-selling collection, Frontier Hearts. Rarely do I have a chance to showcase my historicals, so this was a real treat. As you can tell from the title, these six stories are all western romances. The authors are amazing and their individual novels are beautifully written. I highly recommend this frontier-themed collection.
Finally, I want to recommend a fun multi-multi-multi-author collection titled Forget Me Not Romances. My story is in the second volume. If you want to have a lot-lot-lot of novels in one file, this is the collection for you! Ten authors, ten stories, one low price. You can’t beat that, now can you? And you’re sure to fall in love with the stories from the other authors, as well.
INTRODUCING A BRAND NEW COLLECTION, NOW AVAILABLE!
Introducing Mail Order Brides: Sometimes Love is Only an Advertisement Away. In a time when men outnumbered women, and women sought one of the only avenues available to them, mail order weddings were prominent out west. Nine authors came together bringing you everything from full length to short story, from springtime to Christmas. Settle back and enjoy a simpler time when men and women met through letters.
That’s it for today, readers! I’m so tickled to offer you multiple products for amazingly low prices. Hopefully you’ll get hooked on some of my author-friends and will grow to love and support them, as you’ve done for me.
