How Rank!

HB's official launch is January 2! One week away...

So here it is--the Day Amazon begins shipping out HELL'S BELLES. As of a few minutes ago, HB was ranked #4,229. ((faints))

Does *anyone* understand how the hell Amazon ranks these things?

May of Milady Insanity interviewed me! (Gulp, and she reviewed HB!) And Jane of Dear Author said "Overall, this story features a strong female lead whose unabashed joy in her own skin made for a fun read." (Yes, I skipped right to the end of her review. :-) If you want to read the whole thing, including the parts she took issue with, click over to her site.) Many thanks to May and Jane for taking the time to read HB and for their reviews!

Anyway...

I'm working on HOTTER THAN HELL, which is Daun's story. Nothing like getting into the mind of a horny incubus who's completely Evil and yet somehow still a sympathetic character to take my mind off of all things HB. HOT is getting there. The pace is off, and some of the descriptions are killing me. But this is First Draft Country -- it's allowed to be ugly. I just want to get the story down. Out and down, you know? (Of course, if I stopped checking my stupid HB Amazon ranking every five minutes, maybe I'd get more work done...)

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season -- here's to big things in 2007!

Jackie,

Enjoy your success! New Year - New Book: what could be better?

A horny male POV is just the right spice to flavour the series.;o)

I loved HB (and my hubby loved it too).

Wishing you 'A Happy New Book',

I'm so excited to read Hell's Belles! I can't wait.

Best of luck on the new story -- and stay away from the Amazon rankings! Don't drive yourself crazy. That's what publicists are for!

Thanks so much, everyone! Apparently, even good stress sucks; I hurt my back (again). Sheesh. I'm going to have to start lying and saying that I keep hurting it from trying various interesting positions with Loving Husband... ((innocent smile))

Hiya, Jackie! I just saw your book on the shelves at Powell's here in Portland ... it took all of my willpower to wait for the Amazon shipment coming in next week.

I can't figure out the Amazon rankings either -- today I went from #8000-something to 68000-something ... however they do it, it changes pretty easily.

Hi, MelJean! I can't wait for Amazon to deliver my copy of DEMON ANGEL!
