Wow, what a fantastic launch. I have so many people I want to thank.
To those who donated prizes…
Please support these fabulous, generous people by checking out their websites.
To those who came to the launch party…
I loved having you all there–you made the launch party a success. I had so much fun sharing excerpts and behind the story tidbits. Thank you for participating in the quizzes and competitions. Thank you especially to everyone who got the word out about the launch party and invited their friends.
A big thank you to everyone who picked up a copy of the book…
It was exciting seeing so many people grabbing their free copies during the launch. I am especially thankful to everyone who has been spreading the word about ‘Beautiful & Deadly‘. The free promo is now over, but you can pick up a copy for $3.49 USD/ $4.85 AUD.
It was exciting watching ‘Beautiful & Deadly‘ moving up the charts throughout the launch. These were the top stats:
#6 in Fantasy Collections and Anthologies (Amazon.com.au)
#22 in Paranormal (Amazon.com.au)
#28 in Superhero (Amazon.com)
#36 in Fantasy Anthologies and Short Stories (Amazon.com)
#900 in free kindle store on Amazon.com.au
#3805 in free kindle store on Amazon.com
I am still absolutely amazed by those stats!
Thank you in advance…
To everyone who reviews. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the collection.
During last week’s blogiversary celebrations I received a lovely surprise from Carrie Bailey (Peevish Penman) who also celebrated her blogiversary that day. I was honoured to receive the first ever Peevbody Award. This is the description Carrie gives of the Peevbody Award on her blog (full description found here):
An award for friends of writers that is grander than grand. This award commemorates bravery and true blue friendship in a writer’s career. New writers put their egos on the line and risk everything to share their art and craft, but somewhere all the line they receive encouragement. The caption of this reads in the old latin:
“one less peevish writer“
Why? because support makes us happy. It makes us believe in ourselves, our ability, and our craft. Whether a best friend, family member, agent, publisher, or anyone, it will be awarded once a month by Peevish Penman…
And this is what Carrie said on her blog about why she awarded me the Peevbody (full post on Peevish Penman):
I want to send out the biggest thanks and appreciation for the ever awesome Jo Hart for making our blogiversary special by collaborating with us on the contest, designing the header, and just simply being an awesome writer friend. For this reason, Peevish Penman sends the first Peevbody award to Jo for all around writer awesomeness.
I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a big thank-you to Carrie for thinking of me for this award. I really enjoyed collaborating with Peevish Penman for the blogiversary contest.
I also want to say a big thank-you to everyone who helped make my first blogiversary special by dropping by, commenting and tweeting about it. I had an awesome first blogiversary!
