Good news!

With the help of my husband and my friend (and fellow author) Kody Boye, PRETTY WHEN SHE DIES: A VAMPIRE NOVEL is now a sleeker book for the great price of $10.95!!!

When we (my husband and I) first started self-publishing, we did the best we could to present an attractive trade paperback with a great story inside for my readership. The first version of PRETTY WHEN SHE DIES ended up a really thick book and we originally sold it for $16.95. Though people loved the novel and gave it good reviews, it took a long time for the book to catch on. It wasn't until the big ebook revolution that PRETTY WHEN SHE DIES found a solid fanbase and began to sell briskly.

But not everyone has an ereader and I received some complaints that the price of the book was too high for readers that were trying to budget their money. I also realized that the price might put off some readers who have never heard of me, but are looking for a good vampire story. We looked into reducing the price, but the only way we could do that without losing the small royalty we receive per book was to reformat the book so it would be smaller.

Therefore, Kody Boye has reformatted the book with a smaller, but still very readable font and adjusted the line spacing. My husband scaled down the cover so it would fit the new smaller tome and it looks great. The novel is now slimmer and easier to hold. It still has the same great cover and awesome story inside, but is at a more affordable price.

You can purchase the book today at my online store here (where I get a much better royalty), or purchase it an online retailer once the price has adjusted, or order it at your local bookstore.

So if you've been wanting to read this novel, but have been put off by the price, I hope you will order your copy today.

Thanks again for all your support!
