Welcome to our third post in the series on ReaderLinks. In the first post I showed you how to set up ReaderLinks, and in the second post we witnessed the wonder of CoreLinks. In this post, we’re gonna see how powerful ReaderLinks analysis tools are, and we’ll start with series sell thru and read thru. If you only have stand alones, you can skip this post, but if you have a lot of series, like I do, you may discover some fascinating stuff. Okay, let’s get started.

I’ve been doing the weekly deals for almost two years now, and even though I love listing these each week, it’s a lot of work for me and my PA, Vicki, who does most of the set up. The way we did it up till now worked, but it was a lot of work since we had to manually add all the books, create global links for all of them, copy-paste pictures and blurbs, etc.
A friend of mine did an amazing thing for me and built me a new website called Noralinks. It’s super simple but functional, and it makes things a hell of a lot easier for me and Vicki. You’ll notice the layout is a little different, but other than that, nothing has changed. We’ll still show you the cover, the blurb, and sometimes a personal note from me. You can see on the Amazon logo whether the book is on KU or not.
So if you want to see this week’s deals, head on over there!
Let’s start with last week’s results! I asked you guys what book you’d love me to write next. I had also asked that question in my FB group, and I’m happy to report the results are almost identical: Master Ford’s book won with the next Irresistible Omegas as a close second. I’d better get writing then, right? [Read more…] about Weekly Poll 14 February
I’m super happy and proud to announce that this week, two of my books have been released in foreign languages. It’s a massive thrill to see my books in a translated form, and I couldn’t be more proud.
L’occasione della Vita: The Time of my Life in Italian
Yesterday, The Time of my Life released in Italian under the title L’occasione Della Vita. It was published by Quixote Editione, a well-known publisher of gay romance translated into Italian. It has a gorgeous cover and the first reviews are amazing, so yay. Here’s the blurb in Italian:
Per alcune persone vale la pena uscire allo scoperto, non importa quale sia il prezzo da pagare…
Judah ha toccato il fondo. È al verde, non ha una casa, e ormai ha sfruttato troppo l’ospitalità dei suoi amici. La sua ultima possibilità è partecipare alla gara canora della trasmissione televisiva The Right Note, nella speranza di vincere. Quello che non ha messo in conto di perdere è… il suo cuore. Un altro degli aspiranti concorrenti, Denver, sprizza gioia da tutti i pori, anche se la sua aria così spensierata nasconde l’orrore a cui è sopravvissuto. Judah è attratto da lui come da una calamita, ma non può fare coming out, soprattutto non su una televisione nazionale. Potrebbe costargli tutto.
Tuttavia, quando Denver si troverà di fronte a un problema, Judah dovrà scegliere: Denver… o la vittoria. Fare coming out… o perdere l’uomo che ama. [Read more…] about Two Books in Foreign Languages Released
If you’ve read the first post on How to Set Up Readerlinks, it’s now time to dig a little deeper. Let me introduce you to one of the most amazing features of Readerlinks and also one that a lot of authors struggle with in the beginning: core links.
Core links are links that are automatically created by Readerlinks as soon as you add a new book. Let’s say you’re releasing a book a week from now, but the preorder is already up. Just add the book to Readerlinks, fill out the ASIN, add it to a series where relevant, and you’ll have a whole list of links automatically created by the system. Check back in the first post in this series on how to do this, if you’re unsure.
Now, you may wonder why you’d need more than one link? After all, they all lead to the same Amazon page, right? Not necessarily, for example if you also want to link to your paperback or an audio book, but even so, you’ll want these different links so you can see which one is clicked the most…and this which marketing tool is most effective.

Welcome to this week’s new releases, 99c deals, and freebies in gay romance! First of all, Snow Way Out is here, so make sure to grab that, but we have some more amazing new releases, such as another Snowed In book and K.M. Neuhold’s new release Caulky. There are plenty of great 99c deals this week and a number of freebies. It’s a good haul, haha! Get that one-click button ready… Happy reading!
This is not a paid list or ads, but simply deals I’ve found and books I’m excited about reading, so all personal recommendations from me. If you have a book you’d like to see listed, you can submit it, but that’s not a guarantee I’ll list it.
