Once Upon a Time….

About an hour ago my twin sister, Kathy Lauren Miller, called me and she was so excited. I said “calm down, what in the world are you going on about!! She excitedly told me that one of my books, Delph Altair Strange beginnings was being promoted by Amazon. So, with quite a bit of Shock and Awe…I said “What?   What do you mean?”

“I mean,” she said. “That Delphi Altair came in the Weekly Amazon.com Store-News@amazon.com. in her  email today.”  So, she sent me a copy of the Amazon Ad and I will include it here. I was so shocked. With so many millions of books, I thought, oh my gosh. Well, this may not be earth-shattering news to most, but it was to me.

There were six books advertized/promoted (one of which I am going to buy) I really thought that probably most of my books would end up in Book Heaven and when I calculate the number of people that will see my book cover and the description underneath the title. WOW. That is exciting.

    1. Andrew, thank you so much! i hope dearly that you win that award! And maybe someday I will win an award for Delphi Altair Strange Beginnings ( my first book that I ever wrote) and it is a great story and it is part of a trilogy that I haven’t written Book 2 and Book 3 yet. I was sidetracked by my obession to write The Captain’s Witch. It is a paranomal time travel love and war story with a true love romance too. It is also historical. I loved writing this novel.

    1. Liz, I was shocked. I had no idea. I have learned since that any particular book that has all 5 stars for each review consistantly is a factor and that the reviews are outstanding. Plus, Writer’s Digest wrote that it was excellent and outstanding. So, that is all I know. I am still so surprised. And thank you. Delphi Altar Strange beginnings is the first book I ever wrote and it is a trilogy that I have not yet written, but I am going to now. Karen Anna

    Wow! What an honor! I would certainly want to hear the backstory of how the books are selected. Kudos on such recognition.

    1. Hi Pete, well, from what I know a book must have all 5 stars consistantly from every reviewer of the book in question and have a certain number of reviews. That is all I know. I was so surprised. And I hope your book is next! Karen Anna 🙂

      3. Thank you, Karen. It is nice of you to say that. You have more novels than I do and have been writing much longer I am sure. I only started writing in 2015.

      4. I started writing 3 years earlier than you and so soon you will catch up to me book wise. I didn’t even have a blog for my first two books. Please keep in mind, it is not how many, it is the quality of the books. One of my books, “The Secret of the Stone Arch” needs to be rewritten. I listened to other people give me advice and did not follow my heart – well never again will I do that. Lesson learned. Hence, I learned to 1. follow my heart 2. keep lots of notes 3. Always write the ending first (so you know where you are going) and 4. Always remember that you, yes you, are a very gifted writer! Everyone knows that about you! You have a great future. I have learned things from you, by the way, just reading your writing and I love your style of writing and genre. Karen Anna 🙂

    1. Debby, thank you. It was quite a shock, but now I am going to complete the trilogy that I was to write four years ago. I have put aside the other books I was working on, including for the Whisper series until these two SciFi books are done. Karen 🙂
