saving-my-heart-amazon-large

New Cover for Wattpad Novel, Saving My Heart!

So, I got tired of my cover on Wattpad. So, I commissioned a new one. And it’s here! Just in time for Valentine’s Day. So, hope you all like it. If you’d like to take a look at my free Wattpad novel, head over to Wattpad here for the story of Julie and Peter. I’m still shopping this around. So, not sure if I’ll sell it or self-publish. I have a longer 50K version now than the first draft up on Wattpad. We’ll have to see what 2017 brings. Enjoy!

All Romance Ebooks (ARe) Author Emails Exposed

emailiconSo, I know there has been a lot of speculation out there about what authors were getting before All Romance Ebooks closed. But I thought I’d set the record straight and show you the last emails I got from ARe the weeks before it sent out notices through emails of its closure. I’m just putting it out there so you can see they were operating as business as usual until the time of the closure emails on Dec. 28.

Here is the Boxing Day Promo that was sent to me on 12/19/16. It was the last promo email I got. I had also received one for a promo back during Halloween and for Black Friday. So, it looked like it was running as usual. I had done a promo during the earlier part of the year and past other years. This year, it didn’t seem to generate any sales as compared to other years. So, I didn’t sign up for either of these sales.

Boxing Day Promo Email received on 12/19/16. It also includes a blurb about their Daily Deals program for 2017. So, they were clearly trying to promote advertising for 2017.

“FREE Promo Ops at All Romance!

Participate in our Boxing Day #AReBlast

Deadline December 23, Noon Eastern

This promotion will be held for 1 day only, on December 26. In celebration of Boxing Day, we’re going to b e promoting a 25% discount from select publishers.

You agree to discount your entire catalogue of books by 25% for the day and we’ll do the rest. We’ll set the discount and tag all of your titles with the hashtag AReBlast and link our front banner ad to them. Then, on the 25th, we’ll blast the promotion all over social media and we’ll be sending out a dedicated Boxing Day Bargain Newsletter.

If you’d like to participate in the Blast, just reply to this email. Include your publisher/company name along with written permission to include you. 

Please note: If you have other discounts set for books on this day, the greater of the two discounts will be applied. If you are a hybrid author who sells self-published titles through us, this offer only applies to books within your publisher account.

You are receiving notice this notice because you have books available on AllRomance.com and an active author page. This mailing list is only used for important business communications and promotional opportunities. Author pages usually contain author contact and website information as well as a bio and author headshot. If you wish to update your author information or remove your contact information and thereby unsubscribe from future notifications, please email Audrey.Sharpe@allromanceebooks.com.”

So, I thought this would be helpful since I’ve been noticing a lot of speculation and rumors about what emails authors received. People didn’t seem too sure at times or know exactly what they said. I like to read the actual article to make my own opinions. So, I’m posting the emails to let readers know the behind the scenes for authors affected by ARe’s closure.

The actual email of ARe’s closure is available in my original post when this all began on Dec. 28, 2016.

I hope this answers questions and helps others in their research of this romance publishing/retailer failure. If there is any other information available, you can be sure I’ll post it. Until then, keep writing and reading,
