Over 800!

The response has been tremendous.  Thank you all so much for reading our books.  We’ve received 5 stars across the board so far, except one 3 star from Shorea A. on Smashwords.  I have no way to contact her and hope she’ll find this blog.  Jay and I wanted to thank her for her comments.  We learn as we go and she’s given us something to improve on.

In short, Shorea is a big reviewer of books and called us out on some mistakes we made in the first book.  Mistakes we were unaware of and have since fixed.  We had a few malapropism and tense mistakes and she suggested that we should put the books through a professional proofreader.  She emphasized that she wanted to give us a 5 star rating, but for the distractions that the mistakes caused, but that she liked it and it was A GOOD BOOK (her words and emphasis).  She stated the story was good, character development was good, love scenes were steamy, the action scenes were great and there’s an original twist to the paranormal characters.

Her comment about ‘putting it through a professional proofreader’ got me thinking there might be some software out there for that.  With our backgrounds, we couldn’t justify hiring a professional to do it for us and, yes, we both missed a few things.  Shame, shame.  We’re actually embarrassed about it, but it’s better to suck it up and fixed it for our readers, which is what I’ve done.  Thanks to Shorea, I found the much needed software and now the books are even better!

Being avid readers ourselves, WE HATE MISTAKES AS MUCH AS YOU GUYS DO!  If you ever find something incorrect, please let us know.  We’re not perfect, after all, but strive to be.

Over 350 books in a week!

Not bad, considering we still haven’t gone out to the other 50 countries yet.  Spanish versions in the works and the first video trailer should be complete by the end of next week.  Jeanette and I viewed many, many book trailers and various techs sample videos before we decided on one we wanted ours to be modeled after.  We’re both in awe of Angela Knight’s video of her book Master of Shadows.  Awesome series by the way, if you haven’t read the Mageverse series, I HIGHLY recommend it.  Excellent twist on King Arthur and his Knights.  Sexy, fun and action filled.  And if anyone out there needs a Spanish, French or Italian translator, I’ll let you borrow mine.  Ha ha.  Actually, she’s definitely for hire and has been wonderful to work with.  I’ll post her info in the near future.

We’ve hit over 200 in sales!

Okay, so it’s not such a big number, but it’s exciting to us for only a couple of days being published on one site.  I’m not counting Amazon.  That place is like a sink hole and very user unfriendly for authors to navigate.  They’re also very limited in everything.  I’m now checking into videos and publishing on Inde sites.  Stay tuned…
