Number one Contemporary Fantasy and Children’s Fantasy

Wow! This has been a whirlwind day … a whirlwind month, really.

I just realized that I haven’t blogged since right before Thanksgiving, and I know that’s bad, LOL. In reality, a lot of it is because this is a challenging month for me personally, and it wasn’t long after Thanksgiving that another family member of mine passed away, and my thoughts have been in a jumble.

So, rather than post about my random introspection, I’ve been focusing my efforts on Dusk Gate. πŸ™‚ Book Two is written! There will be some heavy editing over the next few weeks, and then it will release on January 9th! Some of you who have been helping me with my Amazon promotion of Book One will be receiving free advance copies!

In case you were wondering … the official title for Book Two (since, unfortunately, I can’t call it Book Two forever) is … *drumroll* Dusk Gate: Roots of Insight.

And now for the really big news…

Yesterday, I put Seeds of Discovery up for free on Amazon, intending it to be a one-day promotion. But when the day was close to over, the book had hit the top ten in both the Contemporary and Children’s Fantasy categories. So, I thought, what the heck. I’ll leave it free for another day, and see what happens.

Number. One. No, seriously. As of this exact moment — 10:07 P.M., the book is the number one bestselling free book in both of those categories. And, if I can actually type this without falling out of my chair … it’s #103 in free books overall on Amazon.

I am amazed and grateful and shocked, and a million other things right now. Oh, and my house is a TRAINWRECK because every single time the kids were happily absorbed today, you can guess what I was probably doing. LOL.

And, um … the book will be free tomorrow, too. πŸ™‚ Tell your friends. (please!)

  1. I am not surprised that Seeds of Discovery hit number one. Not even a little bit. When I read the first few chapters on GoodReads, I knew was reading something special. And with every chapter I’ve read in the series, my opinion hasn’t changed. Number one on the free list is going to get you noticed…pretty soon you’ll be number one on the other.

    Now if only book three was finished… πŸ™‚

    Congratulations again, Breeana! This is the best excuse for a train wreck that I can think of-as long as it doesn’t involve real trains, of course. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Kristy. If nothing else were to ever come of this writing adventure, your friendship would be a blessing in my life that made it all worthwhile. And it has nothing to do with you loving my characters as much as I do. πŸ™‚ But it is definitely fun to share them with somebody who is also an amazing writer and who gets excited about the little things with me.

      Yeah… if book three would just write itself. πŸ™‚ Nah… I’m having way too much fun.

      • I’m only saying the truth…the Dusk Gate series is fantastic! But I’m very glad to have found a new friend in you, too. Your excitement and enthusiasm is contagious and I have had more fun watching you come into your own as an author. If you could bottle all of that, you’d be an overnight millionaire, lol.

        LOL about the getting excited about the little things with you. Sometimes I have to take a deep breath and say…it’s a BOOK. Tolliver is a fictional character and you can’t kill him (or the guard). But it sure is fun coming up with ideas for how you can do it…and I may share some of them with you some day. Do they have septic tanks in Eirentheos? πŸ™‚

        You keep having fun, Breeana. Write faster, but have fun. And be thinking about your next series and making notes. I’m going to need something to read when this series is finished. πŸ™‚
