September 26, 2011

THIS Wednesday, September 28th, is Ann Charles’ big, fun-filled day! Her multiple award-winning novel NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD, is the featured book for BESTSELLER FOR A DAY. The premier promotion of the Indie Book Collective, BESTSELLER FOR A DAY is designed to push indie authors to the top of the Kindle charts!

What does all this mean exactly? How does this involve me? What do I do?

For you, the reader, it’s easy AND fun! Starting today through midnight Wednesday, 9/28:

1.  Go to and purchase Ann’s eBook NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD for only 99 cents! (The normal price is $3.99 so you save three dollars.) Ann digs it when readers save money, especially right before the holiday season! Then they can buy more books! Like these 3 breathtaking bonus buys, on sale this week ONLY for just 99¢ each: PINK SLIPPER, MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS, and WANTED.

2.  Your purchase helps show the publishing world what indie authors can do when they join forces with reviewers and readers! Every purchase improves Ann’s ranking on the overall Amazon chart. Our goal is to get her eBook, out of the millions of eBooks, onto the Kindle Top 100!

NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD, the winner of the 2010 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense AND the 2011 winner of the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award for Best Novel with Strong Romantic Elements, has already been in the top 10 on Amazon’s Mystery/Women’s Sleuth chart. It has also held the #1 spot on the Top Rated Amazon Women’s Sleuth chart for months, and is in the Top 100 Rated Amazon Kindle Fiction books. How awesome is that? Ann’s is still in shock over the wonderful reader response to her quirky tale full of mystery, suspense, romance, humor, and a hint of paranormal! She periodically slaps herself in front of the mirror just to make sure it’s not a dream!

To make it into the Top 100 Bestseller chart takes serious firepower! To do it, she really needs your help!

Please shout her out to your Twitter stream, Facebook friends, friends and family, even your dog. Reviewers have called NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD: “out of this world,” “a fantastic read,” “fast-paced,“amazing,” “an exciting romping ride.” One reviewer said Ann’s book: “kept me enthralled with goose bump-creepiness and belly-aching laughter.” Another said Ann’s “storytelling capabilities are tremendous!” And yet another said, “With colorful characters and witty dialogue, this is a book sure to please all fans of mystery, romance and the paranormal.”

So…what are you waiting for?

3.      After you purchase Ann’s book, head over to the Bestseller For A Day site and enter to win a brand new KINDLE – Ann’s way of showing her appreciation for your time, effort, and support!

4.      Wait! There’s more! How about this? 3 MORE AMAZING reads – only 99¢ each! PINK SLIPPER, an entertaining and humor-filled story about finding happiness and friendship while swimming in the unemployment pool; written by the talented, multi-published author, Gina Robinson. The award-winning Jacquie Roger’s book, MUCH ADO ABOUT MARSHALS, a side-splittingly funny romantic western with a touch of sleuthing. And, last but definitely not least, WANTED, a sizzling hot historical western romance by Amber Scott, the author of several Amazon bestselling novels!

5.  If you’re still not sure you should part with that buck and maybe win a brand new KINDLE, here are 74 – yep, 74 – outstanding 5-star reviews that may change your mind. It’s hard to part with your cash in this economy. We get it completely. Look at it this way: your 99 cents is an investment in a great escape from reality, a fun read that will bring a smile to your face and keep you up late into the night flipping pages to see what comes next for Violet Parker and her crazy friends. What’s more, it’s an investment in all indie authors who are trying to prove their worth.

Ann appreciates all the love and support you’ve shown her these past few months, pushing NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD up the Amazon charts and onto the Top Rated and Bestseller Lists. We can’t wait to see what Wednesday brings!

Please go directly to NEARLY DEPARTED IN DEADWOOD now to purchase Ann’s book or to the BestSeller For A Day site for more details. If you have questions or comments, feel free to email Ann at or visit her blog. You can also catch her on Twitter or Facebook. When she is not dabbling in fiction, leg-wrestling with her children, attempting to seduce her husband, or arguing with her sassy cat, she is standing on her workshop soapbox, blabbing about what she has learned over the years about the craft and self-promotion.
