I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!
Remember when I said that The Search for Sam had been shortlisted for the 50 best indies of the year? You had to have someone nominate you, then people vote for you…and I’m on the list!
It really is wild how 2018 ended. In September I went to a conference I’d been dreaming about and Sam broke the top 100 on Amazon. Then in October I had my first book signing! November somehow got even better when A Christmas Reunion made it to #4 in Tudor Historical Romance, and stayed #1 in new releases for almost a week. And now in December I won an award!
I didn’t expect to be on the list at all because I’m such a new author so I am super stoked about making it. This year I’m #47. Who knows what will happen next year?
Thank you to everyone who voted! I love y’all! Take a look at all the winners here!
50 Best Indie Books of 2018
This year has been fantastic for me. In September, I broke through my pre-order goal for The Search for Sam and sold more books than I’d ever hoped, putting me in the Top 100 in 20th Century Historical Romance. I was so excited that I thought nothing better could ever happen. Then in October, I had my first book signing. It’s almost the end of November and A Christmas Reunion debuted at #1 in New Releases, hung out there for almost a week, and made it to #4 in Tudor Historical Romance.
Hopefully December will be as amazing, because The Search for Sam has been shortlisted for the ReadFreely 50 Best Indie Books of 2018 in the romance category! However, I’ll need your help to make that happen. The awards are based on votes from readers, and I would love it if you helped me out by voting! The link below takes you to a pre-filled form with the information from The Search for Sam, so voting only takes a few seconds. Sometimes you have to click twice on it but it will work! Polls close on Monday so make the most of this weekend and head on over.
It is a bit unlikely that I’ll make the top 50, what with being a new author and not even a year into my self publishing career, but if I did it would be amazing. Help make my Christmas amazing. Vote for me below!
As always, thank you for all your support! Even if I don’t make the list, my readers and fans have made 2018 a year to remember.
