Successful Giveaway

Yesterday's giveaway was what I'd consider a success! Not because I gave away a lot of books (5 isn't a lot). But the giveaway did pretty much everything I wanted it to. I drove more traffic to this blog, which is always good.  I got quite a few people talking about The Door to Canellin (way more than the 5 who got free books!). And, I had a lot of fun with it! So, a success all around!
There will definitely be more giveaways in the future, so check back here regularly! Next weekend, I'll be giving away some ePub versions for all you Nook users out there!


  1. I think it was a success as well. I even posted a message about it on facebook with a link to your book. I don't have that many friends on there, but maybe one of them will check it out.

    I actually got on here to tell you that your book was indexing (for non-Kindle users, it means that it wasn't fully downloading), but it finally worked right as I opened this page.

    Anyways, thanks again for the free book.

  2. I just wanted to let you know I posted a review of your book on my blog and on Amazon.

  3. Ryne, I just went to your blog and read the review. Thanks so much for the kind words, and I'm glad you're enjoying The Door to Canellin! So often writers, particularly indie writers like us, feel like they're writing in a vacuum, and feedback is usually hard to come by. It's good to know that people enjoy something I've worked so hard on! :)

  4. I'm glad you wrote it.

    From the first page, I felt drawn in. I read the very first page slowly, taking in the way you described things. It was amazing how you painted such a clear picture without bringing a stop to the flow of the story. You did though.

    Keep in mind that I haven't actually finished it yet. I don't have the best memory, so I left the review on my blog and on Amazon when I reached about the fifty percent mark. That way, my thoughts on those parts are clear. I can always go and edit them if I find something else that needs to be mentioned.

  5. Okay, now I'm finished with it.

    There's nothing that needs changing with either review. If anything, it got better, which doesn't help with the review since I gave it five stars.

    Anyways, the only thing I disliked about it was the fact that Elarie stayed in Canellin. She was one of my favorite characters in the story, and I was hoping she'd end up with Wes. I'm sure you have plans that are even better than that though, so I eagerly await the sequel.
