Seventy-five Thousand Ebooks Sold and Counting!!!

It's Leap Day and I'm leaping for joy!!! Doing a Happy Dance!!! Singing in my heart!!!

I've reached the awesome milestone of selling 75,000 ebooks!!! (Actually, it's closer to 77,000.) That's across all channels with fifteen titles. It's hard to believe. I'm in awe!!!

I'd like to thank the Academy . . . No, really. I'd like to thank all of my wonderful readers for taking a chance on my stories. Many of you have sent me emails telling me how much you've enjoyed reading my books. Each letter warms my heart and gives me motivation to keep writing and sharing my "cute little romances."

Last February, I reached the milestone of selling 1000 ebooks. I remember my astonishment and awe. You can read about it here. I wanted to shout from the rooftops. It was truly a writerly moment to treasure.

Selling 75,000 is that much better. Wow! Just WOW!!!

What a year it's been! I finished putting up my backlist and wrote a Regency novella and four short stories. By the end of the year, I had the fifteen titles live. I revamped all my covers and sales have been steady ever since.

I'm hard at work tweaking the next Damsels in Breeches Regency novella, which I hope will go live on St. Patrick's Day. Then it's back to work on my next Diamondback Ranch novel. Everyone is dying for Tyler McCade's story. So am I. *grin*

It's a great time to be a writer!!!

Happy Writing and Reading!!!

Anne Marie   :)

Seventy-five thousand !!! Dude. Awesome. --I know I'm waiting on Tyler's story!! BTW, I love your yellow flowers. Did you know I have some irises from the Texas Panhandle that someone once shared with me... Anyway, they travelled from Shamrock, Texas, to Kent County, to Pasadena, Texas and now, finally to Galveston County where they are in full purple bloom! Congratulations on your achievement.

Someone gave the irises to you? Hmmm? I wonder who that could be? Actually, they came from Oklahoma.

Thanks for the congrats!!! Couldn't have done it without you!!!

That's great news! Congrats. Very motivating for a newbie fiction writer like me. I'm at zero sales (book out in late March). :-)

Mucho congratulations, AnneMarie. You've worked hard for your success.

Toasting you with my cup of java that I'm drinking to keep me awake until I wade through all the email.

Thanks, Joan!!!

Sharing my stories with readers is what's it all about.
