Book Fuss Friday

Happy Friday!

Now, let's cut to the chase and FUSS. :-)

I first noticed this Book Fuss book over a year ago on the Kindleboards (the cover was cool) and saw that it was selling like hotcakes!

I think at the time it was 99 cents. Really cheap, but I didn't have my Kindle yet so I didn't buy it (but it was always on my radar!)
Plus, the author seemed so nice. :-)

I learned this book was her very first published (self-published) book and sold over 147,000 copies. She eventually hit the New York Times bestseller's list with it back in March of 2011.

Impressive, huh?

I decided to bring this book up because it created quite a fuss back then AND because I recently won this author's new book on Goodreads called How to Find Success Selling Ebooks.

What's her fuss-worthy book?
It's called Not What She Seems.

Book description:
A New York Times bestseller!

Steven Ashton, a billionaire from New York, and Emily Grant, on the run from the law...and when they meet he can’t help falling for her. What he doesn’t know is that interfering in her life will put his own life in danger.

When billionaire Steven Ashton couldn’t stand his high society social life anymore, he left the stress of New York on a vacation for his soul. The need to meet real down to earth people led him to a small Nebraska town. He didn’t want to lie about who he was, but he couldn’t exactly tell them the truth.

Emily could have easily fallen in love with Steven, under different circumstances, but her past was catching up with her and she needed a new life. If the authorities found out about her, she could lose the one thing that meant everything, her four year old son.

It's available on Amazon for $2.99 now, but I downloaded when it went free a few months ago.

I haven't read it yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

What about you? Had you seen the fuss on this book?
Have you read it? Can you imagine having your first self-published book hit that big?

LOL, I headed over to Amazon to see if I happened to pick this book up when it was free, too. Yup, did. Haven't read it yet, either, or heard the fuss about it. But now that you've prompted me... :)

This is the first I'm hearing of this book. But NOW it's on my radar! Thank you! I'll make sure I read Sunny Days for Sam before I look into this one though!

Ha! Thanks, Linda!

Wow, I knew she's sold a lot, but didn't realise it was as much as that! I've seen Victorine on Kindleboards over the years and she seems to be lovely person too.

I have been trying to get to Amazon all week and I keep getting slammed by one wave after another. I'm adding this to my list. First I've heard of it and it sounds great!

Happy Weekend :)

I haven't heard about this one. I guess the self-publishing has to pan out sometimes or no one would spend money trying it. I'm glad that it worked so big for this author.

Very cool!!! Looks like a really fun read--thanks for sharing...Wouldn't it be fun to have a self-published book catch on like that???

Bless you!!

Sandra Cox said...

After we consider the concise explaination the expression love, with relation to its a loving connection using a further, but being a experiencing that may be engendered should you have miltchmonkey a better relationship on your own very ( blank ) or even just to be a sensation of more significant oneness with your family as well as human beings , it then turns into all the more really clear that every one anyone needs in your everyday living is like.
