Holy Crap! July Was A GREAT Month!


Okay, now that that's out of the way... holy crap July was an awesome month!! Sorry I've been a little absent on the blog. After the Simmer blog tour, I needed a little break to concentrate on Blaze (which I'm happy to say is going amazingly! More on that soon...

But, some truly, ridiculous, fantabulously amazing things happened in July and I just need to share them with all of you! Aside from Independence Day, the start of the Olympics and the heavenly summer weather, July kicked off some great business for me.

1) I have officially sold over 10,000 copies of my Midnight Fire series...OMFG!!! When I tallied up my sales and saw this number, I literally started jumping up and down and all over my apartment. I can't even put into words how amazing that number feels, just like a milestone in my writing career that I will never forget. Next stop? 50,000. Keep your fingers crossed for me! (A girl's gotta have goals, right?!)

2) In July alone, I've sold over 4,000 copies... Amazon, you have been too good to me!! Which leads into my next point...

3) Ignite broke the top 1,000 in the Kindle store!!!!! And Simmer broke the top 1,500!! I took screen shots for proof (I was slightly afraid that I would wake up the next day and realize it was a dream):

Thank you to everyone who bought copies, let me post on their blog or reached out to me saying they loved the read! I hope this is only the beginning!

And now onto some fun updates. Here's a look at what's coming up for me!

1) BLAZE! I'm hoping to publish the ebook in September :)

2) Blaze giveaways!! Leading up to the publication date, I'll be hosting a ton of giveaways on my blog, so keep checking back in! I want them to be super fun, so start getting creative - I've been toying with something like a tagline competition, or some fan artwork, or maybe pick your dream cast of a Midnight Fire movie. Just some ideas, but starting in mid-august I'll begin the giveaways!

3) I'm working on a top-secret video! Not a trailer exactly, more of a song, but I'm hoping to get that out in September also... trust me, you'll love it.

And that's all folks! Thank you again for reading... time for me to get back to Blaze to give you something you really want to read ;)
