Instructions For Purchasing Signed Copies Of Unwilling

Hi everyone!

I've had quite a few inquiries, messages, and requests for signed copies lately. THIS IS AWESOME and I don't mind sending you a signed copy of UNWILLING. It's one of my favorite parts of being an author. 

But to streamline the process a little and save us both some time, I've created a Paypal button and posted it on my blog. The "Signed Copy USPS" $16.00 fee covers the cost of your copy and the shipping. This fee is also per copy. 

To complete an order:
1. click the paypal button
2. follow paypal's instructions 
*paypal will send me a notification of this transaction* 
3. email me here, to let me know you purchased and include the physical address when you want the book sent. 

As long as I have books on hand, it takes me less than a day to get a book into the mail. If I have to place an order for more copies, I'll always let you know as soon as I see your order. 

**For those attending "Day with the Authors" Luncheon April 24-25 and UtopYA Con2015 both in Nashville, TN**
This button can be used as a pre-order option for you to pick up your copy at the conferences signing events. You would choose "Signed copy Conference" $12.00 and I will have those ready for you at the event for pick up.

Thank you so much to everyone who has read, reviewed and enjoyed this story as much as I have. I couldn't do this without all of you <3

Give a book some love this week.
Until then,

There’s nothing like a blog that’s behind on updates to remind you just how behind schedule you are LOL! Now to catch you all up on what’s to come for 2015.

A few updates since we last talked:
*Unwilling is available in both formats! (*Woohooo*) on Amazon and as an ebook on iBooks, Kobo, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble.
If you’d like a signed copy, email me here for more information. I’ll be happy to put a copy in the mail to you J
If you have a copy already and would like a signed book plate, email me for more information and I’ll be happy to send you one.

Have you read Unwilling?
If so, thanks so much! And I hope you enjoyed the story J
Did you enjoy Unwilling enough to leave a review for other readers to discover? If so, HUGE thanks! I have been overwhelmed with the wonderful reviews left for Unwilling. You guys ROCK and I’m thrilled to hear so many of you enjoyed the beginning of Neely's journey! Each message is like Christmas <3

I know you all probably get sick of hearing authors yammer about needing reviews. Trust me, I get it. But maybe this little bit of info will help the next time you read a great book.

Did you know?
There are some promotions authors can’t even qualify for, no matter if they have the money to pay the fee, and no matter how wonderful the story, unless their book has reached a certain number of reviews?

This is one reason authors are constantly talking about the need for reviews. The numbers help us move forward J

Did you also know?
That lots of promotional sites and services with large audiences require a certain ranking in the book’s reviews?
I didn’t know this before I became published and started trying to find advertisements for Unwilling.
This also means if “3 stars I LOVED IT!” is a reviewer’s version of “5 stars I LOVED IT!”, their glowing three star review, though greatly appreciated, can prevent that author from finding a wider audience due to low rank numbers. 
Math… L

I know, it’s all that weird algorithm business that leaves me squinting at the screen too. But it’s something to consider when you love a great book and want others to read it too.

Thanks for coming over to visit my neglected blog, I hope to have more signing events to add to this list soon that give me the chance to meet you guys in person and talk books!
Give a book and its creator some love this week.
Until then,
