Squeee! Sophie’s Secret has received some awesome reviews at Smashwords and Barnes and Noble. It’s currently free there and I’m trying to get Amazon to honor the free price at their store as well. So far, no luck, but I’ll keep you posted. Print versions of the Whispers series are also available at amazon.com but those were published about four years ago by my former publisher. I’ve recently updated the series.
Some of my readers have asked if I plan on publishing book 4 in the Whispers series, and the answer is YES! I’m already planning the girls’ sophomore year, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
For those of you who don’t know the full story, my Whispers series once had a home with a publishing company. After they discontinued their YA line, Whispers no longer had a home and other publishers didn’t want to finish out the series. So I quit writing them. I never envisioned that I’d soon be able to self-publish these books thanks to the ereading revolution.
I’ve been seriously writing for about ten years and now is a good time to be an indie writer. Before, it was considered taboo to publish a book without the backing of a publishing house, but thanks to pioneers like John Locke, Amanda Hocking and J. A. Konrath, many indie writers are finding success without publishers. I sure hope I turn out to be one of those authors. So far, my reader reviewers are giving me quite a bit of hope.
