Let’s Talk Shall We?

Hey everyone, something’s been on my mind for a bit so…

Yesterday a post about an upcoming giveaway posted and I need to share an update on it.

I’ve never had any problems in regard to being a part of a group giveaway on Prolific Works until the most recent one.

I was sent an email on June 28th notifying me that my books had been removed from the A Different World: Protagonists of Color giveaway. Confused I asked the organizer in the comments section on the Group Giveaway details page.  I was told that I hadn’t promoted which wasn’t true because I had and I shared this information on the comments page. The response I received was a passive aggressive one that was directed to everyone which basically stated that if one didn’t promote during the promotion they would be permanently banned from all upcoming giveaways. This past week the organizer mentioned this again and another person commented that they had let time slip away from them and they would promote to which the organizer stated something along the lines that “The proof is in the pudding.” in regards to promoting.

Now these comments have been erased from the comment section by the organizer and I didn’t think to screenshot them at the time. However,  I do have screenshots of my promotion activities (I also have one last promo scheduled later today):

I’m not sure why the organizer acted this way, perhaps it was in response to the low numbers of downloads for each book in the giveaway. Also this what the organizer of each giveaway can see for the promotions that they do:

But even with this how can they tell who promoted and haven’t?

I don’t want to cause any trouble but I’m upset that I’ve been accused of not promoting when I have been.  I don’t have a huge following and I do my best promoting on here, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and my mailchimp.  So while I highly disagree with the organizer’s actions and my books have been removed from the giveaway, I want to encourage you to download the ebooks featured in the giveaway.

Please remember to leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble once you’re finished reading.  The number of reviews a book receives affects its visibility on these sites, so if you want to support authors please leave a review! They appreciate it.

It’ll be a while before I do giveaways again. I don’t appreciate anyone falsely accusing me when I have proof that I’ve promoted.  Thank you for downloading my books and giving them reviews.

Until next time!

You Can Now Pre-Order I, Darcy ebook

Happy Friday readers! I hope you’re doing well.

It’s been a few weeks since my last post. I’ve been busy conducting research for the next books I’ll write, in addition to editing and formatting two other books.  Also life’s been busy with work and my mother was hospitalized but is doing much better now.

Today I have some wonderful news. You can now pre-order your ebook copy of my upcoming novel I, Darcy! Since 2013 I’ve worked on this novel and it’s been a long journey that will come to end when both the ebook and print versions of the book are released on October 1st, 2017.

You can pre-order your copy at the Kindle Store and over at Smashwords. The ebook version of the novel costs $2.99, while the print version will be around $8.00.

A few months back I revealed I, Darcy’s cover and premise, but since it’s been a while here’s the cover and premise:

Genre: An alternative historical YA novel.

Teaser:

A sixteen-year-old eidolon girl’s charged in the death of her human bully. Her human step-father volunteers to represent her but they distrust each other. Can they reconcile in time to win the case?

Blurb:

“Society believes I’m disposable. To them I Darcy Mary Elizabeth Munroe am the monster that they’ve seen on TV shows, books, and films brought to life.”

Sixteen-year-old Darcy Munroe enjoys books, music, fashion, and other aspects of pop culture. Unlike most teens, she doesn’t have the privilege of living a normal life due to being born an eidolon. Darcy lives in a world that not only hates and fears her but is edging towards an apocalypse.

When her human bully dies in a school-related incident, Darcy’s charged with their death. With her fate lying in the hands of a human jury, things become more complicated when her human step-dad Eric volunteers to represent her. They don’t trust each other and often butt heads over the human/eidolon conflict. Can Darcy and Eric settle their differences in time?

Sounds awesome right? I’m looking forward to sharing this story with you and I hope you’ll enjoy it. I, Darcy will be out in print and ebook on October 1st.  You can purchase your copy at Amazon.com, Smashwords.com, and BarnesandNoble.com.

I’ll close out this post by thanking those who’ve purchased copies of my previous works including my mermaid fantasy novella Orniainthi. Your support means a lot to me.

I hope your weekend goes well and I send Galactus sized hugs to those you need it. Stayed tuned for more updates and posts! Have a wonderful day and weekend and to those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom.
