I've just discovered -- it's a good idea to click on links and check them once in a while -- that my online read, THE CINDERELLA VALENTINE, is no longer "online". It has disappeared, gone, vanished into the ether. They used to stay there for years, but now these little stories have been rounded up to be sold as telephone downloads (for which the author does not get any money -- we were paid up front).
I do wish Harlequin would let authors know when this happens -- there's nothing more annoying for readers than clicking a link, hoping for a dollop of romance, only to discover that what you're hoping to find just isn't there any more.
I imagine that, sooner or later, like THE SECRET WEDDING, my Cinderella will be available as a phone download from eHarlequin. When that happens -- and they won't tell me when, I'll have to keep checking -- I'll let you all know.
In the UK, they've starting selling a few entire books as telephone downloads. I was interviewed on Radio 5 Live! about this on Easter Monday. All those people playing with their mobiles on the train, could now be reading a romance. I love that!
I've also removed the Mills & Boon link to BOARDROOM BRIDEGROOMS, because it's sold out.
Thank you all for that.
It is still available at Amazon, or The Book Depository, where they offer free delivery, and also in Borders in Fforestfach, Swansea.
I know, because I saw it there yesterday, where I also found NATURAL BORN CHARMER, the latest Susan Elizabeth Phillips, which cost £12.99 in trade paperback which is a scandal -- and frankly, I'd much rather have an ordinary paperback because it's easier to handle. But for SEP I'm prepared to suffer.
And today PURE PASSION is launched in Wigan by north-west libraries. Lucky readers in the north-west to have such a fabulous library service.
