The Beauty Bride on the Charts

The Beauty Bride, first book in the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixYesterday, I had a BookBub ad for The Beauty Bride and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the results. This book is the first in my Jewels of Kinfairlie series and has been free for the past year. I thought it might be running out of juice as a freebie, but yesterday proved me to be very VERY wrong.

Wow. I’m amazed by how many units went out the door.

Let’s have a look at the results.

At Amazon this morning, The Beauty Bride is sitting at #8 overall free in the Kindle store, as well as #1 in Medieval Romance and #1 in Scottish Romance. I’m keeping some good company over at the ‘Zon today.

THANK YOU to everyone who picked up a copy of Bartholomew and Anna’s story yesterday and helped to send it up the charts!

His dream of becoming a knight achieved, Bartholomew heads home to avenge his parents—only to find himself hunted and in need of the assistance of a most unlikely and unpredictable ally. Anna seeks justice with a disregard for the law that shocks Bartholomew, but the bold maiden’s tactics are as effective as her kisses are seductive. Does she truly wish to aid him in regaining his legacy, or is she using him as a pawn in some scheme of her own?

All or Nothing is #1!

All or Nothing, book #4 of the Coxwell series of contemporary romances by Deborah CookeYesterday, I had a BookBub ad to promote my contemporary romance All or Nothing for 99 cents. I love this book because the hero and heroine challenge each other. Zach Coxwell has always been the black sheep of his family, the guy with charm to spare who never seemed to care about much of anything. Jen is a cancer survivor who hasn’t really started living again. I like how these two spark from their first meeting and provoke each other. It’s no spoiler to tell you that Zach discovers that he cares about Jen enough to risk everything, and that Jen steps up to take a chance on life again with Zach’s encouragement. They’re wonderful together, IMO, and not just because she knits. 🙂

This was a terrific promotion, and the results this morning are so wonderful that I want to share them. Again, we’ll have a look at the differences between territories and portals, because that kind of stuff fascinates me.

First of all, there are great results at Amazon and some weirdness, too.
All or Nothing is #43 overall paid in the Kindle store, which is pretty awesome.
All or Nothing at Amazon.com on October 8, 2016What’s odd is that the book is categorized as contemporary romance, but wasn’t included on the bestseller list for that category.

In the UK, it’s even more strange. Zach and Jen’s book is #308 paid overall in the Amazon.co.uk store, but it’s not categorized as fiction at all. All the sites use the same metadata, the metadata in which the book is categorized as a contemporary romance.
All or Nothing at Amazon UK on October 8, 2016
In Canada, All or Nothing is #18 overall paid, and it’s appearing in the Holiday romance category.
All or Nothing at Amazon.ca on October 8 2016
In Australia, the metadata is being interpreted the way I expected. All or Nothing is #40 paid in the Kindle store, and #8 in contemporary romance.
All or Nothing at Amazon AU on October 8 2016
At Barnes and Noble, something magical has happened: All or Nothing is #1 overall in the Nook store!
All or Nothing at B&N on October 8, 2016It’s #5 on the contemporary romance list there, too.

At Kobo, Zach and Jen’s book is #6 in contemporary romance, #8 in romance and #2 in humorous fiction, which is pretty cool.

At Apple, Zach and Jen’s book is #8 overall in books at the iBooks store:

And it’s #3 in the Romance section there, as well.
All or Nothing at the iBooks store on October 8 2016What a wonderful suite of results! Thanks to everyone who picked up a copy of this book yesterday. It’ll remain on sale until the 12th of October. Remember that Double Trouble, #2 in the same series, is free. There’s a Coxwell Series Boxed Set, too, which is $9.99 right now. Some portals don’t list the boxed set as part of a series, but it’s there!

Edited to add – after some coffee, I went looking for All or Nothing in the Kindle store. I found it at #1 in Holiday romance, as listed on the product page.
All or Nothing on October 8 2016 at Amazon.comI also found it at #5 in Romantic Comedy:
All or Nothing on the Romantic Comedy bestseller list at Amazon.com on October 8 2016And I found it where it belongs, in Contemporary romance, at #13:

So, things aren’t quite so weird after all. 🙂
