An Amazon Screenshot that Made Me :-) and Free Promo!

 

Amazon ca print screen feb 21 15

This was the screenshot over at Amazon.ca today, when I did a keyword search for “haiku” in the Kindle store!

Wowsa, I wasn’t expecting to have one of my haiku books: (Haiku Reflections I) in the top spot; what a nice surprise. 🙂

And there are 100 pages of books, for the keyword: haiku. 

I LOVE writing and reading haiku sooooo much. It’s such an honor to have people reading my work and buying my books/eBooks too.

I also have 2 free Kindle promos on this weekend, one for my midlife romance novel:

Third Chapter, Second Chance.

The other promo is for my cookbook:

The Groovy Green Kitchen I: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker.

Both are available all weekend for free, as Kindle downloads at: Amazon.com, .ca, UK,….etc.

See the Amazon.com links on the sidebar here or visit your own Amazon site to download copies.

It’s back to typing for me here! 

Have a great weekend. Happy Reading and Cooking too! 🙂

Amazon Book “Breakthrough” on Black Friday :-)

I was over at Amazon.com and Amazon.ca yesterday morning, browsing; along with a gazillion other shoppers and to my surprise and delight, 2 of my books/eBooks were on 3 Top 100 PAID lists! 🙂

Here’s a screenshot from around 9AM, Black Friday over at  Amazon.com from the:

Top 100 Paid List for Vegetarian Cookbooks:

The Groovy Green Kitchen on Black Friday 2014 at 9 AM

The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker was at #75. 

Not number 1 but heh on a Paid List, especially on Black Friday, I’ll take it. 😉

It’s a rare honor/treat to end up on any Top 100 List at Amazon, especially the paid lists considering the millions of books that are available at Amazon. I wasn’t able to see if I moved up any further later in the day as I was out and about with a lot of errands to do, but it sure was a nice way to start the morning. 🙂

Meanwhile, over at Amazon.ca, Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons Volume 1 was on 2 Top 100 Paid Lists: Love Poems and Haiku and Japanese. 

Considering how many people were online at Amazon.com and .ca shopping yesterday (I’m guessing in the millions!) that made it even more special.

It also gave me a “kick in the pants” to get back working on my two current eBook projects more diligently. 😉

I’ve been rather lazy about getting these projects finished but I’m digging in this week to change that.

One is the second installment in The Groovy Green Kitchen series, the other is a motivational book about a number of topics including the Law of Attraction.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Shopping, Cooking and Reading too! 😉

5 Recent Book Reviews (4 Good, 1 Stinker) ;-)

recent book reviews march 18

I just posted 5 new book reviews at My Real Life Reviews.

These are also posted at Amazon.com (in abbreviated version, with their rating system).

One is a STINKER. 😦

 The other 4 are all good. 🙂

 Stop by at: My Real Life Reviews to read all these reviews.

And if you do enjoy any of my reviews, helpful votes at Amazon (see my Amazon reviewer profile page) are most appreciated. I’m still moving up the reviewer ratings  list there and the more helpful votes, the better.  Thank you!

Happy Reading! 🙂
