It did make it to #8 in the top 50, but I forgot to take a screen shot. Whoops. How did I do it? Its on sale for 99 cents and I managed to be featured in All Romance's bargain Wednesday newsletter, which gave it a lot of exposure.
Because of that, it received a silver star in all three of its categories, and for a day or two, #1 in those categories of Vampires, Fantasy and Erotic. Also a category bestseller in Fantasy.
My Highlander Cover Model did well, receiving silver stars in Time-Travel and Scottish/Highlander. Last I checked (at the time of this writing) they were still in the top 5 at All Romance in those 2 categories. Also made the Amazon bestseller category in Fantasy.
All this is great, and I do hope it gives me more exposure to readers who may have never heard of me, but all this proves to me is price point matters, and being able to get the word out. Not an easy thing to do. I can't bring myself to pay money to advertise a sale to places like Bookbub (have you seen their prices? *faints*) or many of the other promo services out there. So I do what I can and my fellow authors and blogger buds have been a big help spreading the word. Thank you..
Sale continues until the end of October 2014!

Life changed for Deanna Brooks the night she attended a book signing for her aunt's best-selling paranormal romance series. There she met Burney "Burn the Cover God" Sheridan. The model for the fictional vampire hero, Burn is beyond handsome with an overabundance of Irish charm.
Burn Sheridan, a man with scores of past lives, has a secret: He really is a vampire. Meeting Deanna was agony because for the first time in over two hundred years, Burn experiences the rarest of vampiric needs, the "mate of his soul" connection. Keeping people at a distance had been Burn's existence for centuries, but Deanna makes this pledge of staying detached impossible.
Many obstacles lie ahead and the biggest of all may be Burn himself. Can Deanna and Burn overcome them and find lasting love?

Skye Bancroft is a hard-working assistant art director at Night Moon Publishers. Dealing with the occasional spoiled and egocentric model is part of her job description. She did not count on one so delusional to think he was a Scotsman from the highlands of 1814.
Cailin Thorburn is every woman’s dream—a highland warrior, who is fierce, passionate and wields a very large sword. Rendered unconscious during battle, he awakens in another place, time, and seemingly in another man’s body. Was it all a dream? His convincing the bonnie lass, Skye, he is Cailin, the highland warrior, and not a pampered cover model is a daunting task.
Can an extraordinary man from another world prove he is who he claims? Will their attraction be enough or is Cailin just a highlander cover model?
Karyn’s been happily married for a long time to her own hero. His encouragement keeps her moving forward.
