Readers, did you know you can download TEN books at a time with Kindle Unlimited? #AmReading

Amazon sent the book-loving world into a tailspin with its announcement of Kindle Unlimited. This service isn't the first of its kind, but this is Amazon, so you know it's gonna be awesome. That's my opinion, of course, but I'm very happy with the benefits and service I receive from Amazon. I've had several Kindles, and they just keep getting better and better. 

And now...they have Kindle Unlimited, which gives me an unlimited supply of books for $9.99 a month! Considering that I read three or more books a week, with a price tag up to $9.99 (I don't pay more than $10 for an eBook), this is an awesome deal for someone like me. Oh, and I listen to another two to three books a month on Audible, so that's AWESOME! I didn't even have to do anything special. After I borrowed a book, the audio book popped into my Audible app. So, I'm reading one book at night...I'm listening to another book while I run errands. AND, if I want, I open my Kindle, and it'll sync to where I stopped listening. 

It's as though I have a valet. Imagine that...
Me: "Oh, sir...would you find where I left off?"
Book Valet: "Of course, madam."
Me: :)

I've heard some readers say, "But there are a lot of FREE books on Amazon..." Sure...but, there aren't a lot of FREE second, third, and fourth books in a series free. Now, if you love a first book, especially those evil authors who leave you with a cliffhanger ending--I only have one of those, but I warn readers.

I've also heard, "But I want to own my books." Well, me too! But, not all of them. Yes, there are a select number of books that I've read over and over, but mostly, eh...once is enough. Just like Netflix, if I want to re-watch a movie, I can. If I watch it and love it, I can still buy it.

Now...onto my last note. I LOVE short stories! Just like a movie, sometimes I don't have a lot of time. I just want a quick snack before I go to bed at night or during lunch. BUT, I'm not too keen on paying $2.99 for them. Oooh...with Kindle Unlimited, I can check out TEN BOOKS A MONTH! So, just like the library, I don't have to worry about a book being too short or if I don't like it. I can go shopping on Amazon, find a few reads, and have them all waiting on my Kindle, iPhone, iPad, or other devices that I can download the Amazon App. If you don't know how to do this click here: - Read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices 

So, if you like reading as much as I do, why not check it out? Kindle Unlimited is FREE for thirty days, so you have nothing to lose. 

And yes, some of my books are there. So whether you like mystery or paranormal-romance, hop on the FREE introductory wagon for at least a month...and read until your heart's content.

New Release Quick Snack:
A Solstice with Jacky Waterman

Mystery with a Paranormal Edge:
The Library (Where Life Checks Out)

Until next time, happy reading!

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

Now, if you’ve read any of my novels or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings; and as in any fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
