who would it be?
Personally, I'd pick ---
What about you? :)
Note: I have a separate blog entry thanking WRITERS. This one is for you guys alone!
First of all, thank you! I know this makes me sound like Sarah Jessica Parker in the movie How Does She Do It (or something like that, I forgot the title) with how she loves saying thank you, but honestly it's NOT me. It's how Filipinos are raised. We LOVE saying thank you. We feel like douchebags if we don't get to say thank you at least three times. =D
Sooo...bear with me.
Because...Billionaire Bad Boys of Romance Boxed Set, after being out for three weeks (released 10/28 on Amazon) is still #16. It peaked at #12 actually for last week and #11 the week before that. There are so many WONDERFUL books out there being released every day and that fact just makes it surreal, the way we are still on the first page of Amazon's Top 100.
And I know, I AM ABSOLUTELY SURE that it's all because of you READERS. :) So thank you for that.
And that's just the first reason.
Another reason I'm absolutely grateful to you guys is because your support also catapulted us to the USA Today bestseller list at #57! Here's a snapshot just in case you don't want to click the link ---
(O.T. If you posted a review about the bundle on Goodreads, you might see your review included in the page I've linked to earlier. So cool, right?!)
Third reason. Well....here's another snapshot because there are NO WORDS to explain how happy I am right now.
Just to put things in context ---
I am NOT a native English speaker. I DO NOT have a degree in writing. I was NOT professionally trained in any way to write. I DID NOT graduate from our version of Ivy League universities here. I come from a Third World country - one that is so poorly run we STILL have dead bodies littering the towns ravaged by Haiyan (typhoon).
I am an eccentric writer at best. I rarely write about serious stuff. My heroines are - according to some - spineless, but I'd like to think that they're just too nice for their own good (mostly because I'm as GULLIBLE as I am more often than not). I talk too much on Facebook - and just about everywhere else. I am the kind of author who doesn't act like an author because I'm soooo chatty with my readers.
But...still...because of you guys...I got to be in a boxed set that made it to #11 on Amazon, #57 on the USA Today bestseller list AND I got to be the 51st bestselling author in the ENTIRE AMAZON store.
So really...bear with me when I say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! :)
So...it's been some time since I last blogged - sorry about that! There was just so much to do. Plus, I'm pretty sure you'd rather I write more than spend too much time chatting with you guys, right? =D
But first things first - Billionaire Bad Boys of Romance Boxed Set has made it to the Top 40 in Amazon! Its best rank was #31 but let's keep our fingers crossed it gets even better than that. A girl can wish, right? It also did good in B&N, with its best ranking at #19. :) I am soooo over the moon about it! The boxed set is doing soooo much better than I expected, and somehow I never and I do mean never thought it would give me THIS kind of ranking on Amazon---
I mean, my God! Really? #97 overall in Amazon? Come on! That must be a glitch, right?!
Well, okay, it's not - it's actually all because of this super awesome group of authors I got to recently know. I'm not sure if I can name them specifically - honestly, in my mind, they're like some kind of Opus Mundi for authors. =D But they know who they are and I owe them so much!
Author rankings in Amazon are updated hourly btw, hence the screenshot. :)
Okay, on to other news. If you got my newsletters, the most recent one featured a list of boxed sets I personally recommend. I'm going to redo that here sometime this week hopefully. :) I also included in my newsletter the blurb for a new standalone novel I'm working on for the next boxed set I'll be in. :)
Next - I have my first Book Spotlight post up. You should check it out when you have time because if you enjoy my romantic comedies then you will enjoy This Crazy Little Thing by Tamryn Ward as well.
What else? Oh, not to worry - we'll have Jason and Keanne and Warning: Love Moderately out soon! This year, I promise!
All in all, the last two weeks have been amazing and it doesn't even matter if I'm still bedridden! All this - and YOUR SUPPORT - has made my hard work worth it! :)
Here is where I talk about behind-the-scene stuff that readers may want to know more about.
