Two-Day Sale of Victorian Mystery Books on Kindle

I don’t usually just post when I am doing a promotion, but I am experimenting this time with a pre-Holiday promotion of my two Victorian San Francisco Mystery novels so I thought I would let you all in on the experiment.

Uneasy_Spirits_600x900_72dpiUneasy Spirits, the sequel in my Victorian San Francisco Mystery Series is FREE on KINDLE for two days, Tuesday-Wednesday, December 11-12, 2012.  Here is the link for the U.S. Kindle Store, and the U.K. Store.

A second part of the experiment is to offer the first book in the series, Maids of Misfortune, for 99 cents for the same two days that the sequel is on sale. While I know there are lots of people out there who already have Maids of Misfortune and are going to be glad to pick up the sequel for free, I wondered if those who are new to my work would be inclined to get the first book in the series at the same time if it was discounted. Here is the link for discounted Maids of Misfortune in the U.S. Kindle Store, and the U.K. Store.MAIDS_800x1200x72dpi

If you don’t own a Kindle, try the Kindle ap.

Meanwhile, if you love historical fiction, here is a list of the books that are free or discounted from the Historical Fiction Authors Cooperative to which I belong. Check them out, and the other fine historical fiction ebooks by the Cooperative members.

  1. Hi! Are you planning to make Maids of Misfortune available on Nook before Christmas. An I can’t wait for your next book and stories! Thanks so much!

    1. Dear Laura,

      I wish I could, but so far I have not been able to get any help from the people at Barnes and Noble to get my books into the right categories so that people can find them. Even my short stories, which do sell on the Nook, get no traction. For example, I have sold nearly a hundred times more of my newest short story, Miss Moffets Mend a Marriage, on Amazon than I have sold for the Nook, and I know it is because no one can find it. But, I promise, when the next book comes out, I will have all 3 available everywhere, at least for a limited time.
