The 50 Best Indie Books of 2018!

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!

The Magic of Gingerbread: Christmas Wishes Book 5

SS_The Magic of Gingerbread_HiResSandra Sookoo has written an amazing number of books…75 at last count! I wish I had her time management skills, and hope to reach that number some day. This is her Christmas Wishes story, and it promises to be just as addicting as the rest!

In 1888 London, Miss Eleanor Redding, possessed of a beastly, grouchy attitude, works for Western Union Telegraph Company. It gives her a certain independence and a place to hide from her disappointing past in America. When she accidentally intercepts a Morse-coded message alluding to clandestine and nefarious activity, she accepts the challenge with alacrity. It will take her mind off the fact she’s once more alone for the Christmas holidays. Why couldn’t a man look past her prickles and scars to fight for her?

Mr. Cameron Hallewell, grandson of the Earl of Albemarle, is employed by the Home Office in the matters of foreign interests. He takes his occupation of protecting British interests seriously, but he longs for a woman to surprise him in unexpected ways, to want him instead of his social standing. When there’s news of a foreign operative lurking about Victoria Station planning something vile, he intends to track them down… only to find an attractive woman tailing various strangers on the platform and looking for all the world like a spy herself.

They get on together like oil and water, but despite Eleanor’s prickles and Cameron’s bruised heart as well as his secrets, a spark catches between them. As the unlikely pair work together to capture a spy and prevent harm from befalling London, they come to care for and rely on each other. Throw in the intriguing prospect of an unexpected Christmas courtship, and they could have a romance that spans the ages… if they’ll only let themselves give into granted wishes and a passion that’s been there all along.

Next week, the final Christmas Wishes book comes out! It’s still available to preorder for $0.99, at all your favorite online retailers!

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!
