So…..

So, I created an ebook, a sampler of the NFH books for readers that haven’t read it and are not sure if they want to spend their hard earned money on something that they might not look. I published it through Smashwords to get distributed through Amazon for free, but Amazon decided to slap a price tag on it of 99 cents, which is their right. 

I don’t agree with this and don’t think its right to ask people to pay for a collection of samples that they can get online for free. I have asked that it be taken down. I will keep it up at Smashwords.com because they are able to keep it there for free. 

That is pretty much it for right now, except I am working on the NFH books right now 🙂 Pytes, Cursed Heart, EMS, etc. are on my list as well.

    At least your tried. Amazon as a company will always try and make money some way. But good on you for trying. This is why you are my favorite author.

    I was addicted to NFH within the first few pages of my first one so can’t imagine anyone not enjoying them. I love a book you can just relax with…..Gets some giggles and laughs with and down right swoon worthy guys and gals. Their relationships are how it should be ….Not always perfect but in the end …..Totally encased in love….Lust and humor.

    It’s okay, Kathy 🙂 I’m not mad with them. I understand that they need to make money to operate. There’s no hard feelings 🙂

    Smashwords.com is just better set up to handle this kind of thing so I’ll post a link to it from this page. I just don’t feel comfortable asking people to pay for something that was meant to be free and give readers a glimpse.

    You rock. I’ve always offered to lend the first book of a series to friends through the kindle app so they can see if they like it. If they do, they usually but the rest of the series, and the first book, themselves. I like the sampler idea.

    Thanks RL I can honestly say NFH is one of my fav series and encourage everyone to read them. Even got my mum to read them and she’s 69 and loves them. Once someone starts they won’t be able to stop. Love your work

    Wow. Thank you. That is really thoughtful. I was about to buy in Amazon thinking *this is for RL* ~ good thing I checked your blog first. Really love your books (esp Perfection) and thank you for being so inspiring, I hope someday I can be like you.
