Happy Holidays!

XmasTree-235x_OpThis post is super short because I know your attention is where it should be, which is on friends, family, happy traditions, and giving huge thanks for what we have and what we hope will come.

I want to thank each and every one of you for taking this crazy blog-and-self-publishing ride with me, and for all your input, compassion, encouragement, and support along the way. To thank you with a very tiny gesture, Book 1 in my Gen Delacourt Mystery series, Mark of the Loon, is free 12/22 – 12/24 (the promo is over now, sorry!). It had over 42,000 downloads since the promo started – and yes, you can bet I’ll be blogging about that.

If women’s fiction-mystery-amateur sleuthing is not your favorite genre, download it and give it away as a gift. Happy holidays to all, and I’m wishing you the most joyous, memory-filled season ever. Mwah!

    Yay Molly! How exciting to have all those downloads. May you develop a solid group of fans from among the crowds.

    Thank you for all your amazing input over this past year. I look forward to new adventures for both of us in 2015.

    In Australia the usual greeting this time of year is “Have a Merry Christmas” so I’ll wish you that, and also the US equivalent, “Happy Holidays”. 🙂

      Thank you, Belinda! Yes, Fingers crossed even a small portion of those downloads turn into real, long-term fans. Looking forward to climbing more self-pub-related mountains in 2015, and … have a merry, merry Christmas!
