Thanks to Dark Diva Reviews

For this. From Helen of Sydney (yes, the one way down there).
For The Prayer Waltz.

I wouldn't have known this existed if it weren't for the Dreamspinner authors' group, so I thank them as well. (Google hasn't been too alert.)

There was one thing in particular Helen said that really touched me, because it was exactly the kind of reaction I was hoping for: "I felt a kind of peace settle around me as I finished the book." Reader reactions don't get much better than that for a story with a quiet voice. (Well, Tam's was pretty danged cool too! )


Tam said...

Yay you. 5 sexy girls. :-)

And thanks for the shout out but she said it much more eloquently than I did.

Have a great weekend.

Chris said...

Congrats! :)

Actually, yours meant more to me, Tam, since it was the first. There are other reasons too.

Thanks, Chris.

Must go bury myself in that ms. again.

I can see someone saying "I felt a kind of peace settle around me as I finished the book." about one of your books. I kind of felt that about Bastards and Pretty Boys,

By the way, I wanted to buy this book when it came out, but saw that Dreamspinner didn't have paypal on their front page as payment methods. Then, I couldn't find out what formats they offered their books in.

I finally bit the bullet and decided to create an account to buy your books and it turns out they do offer paypal.

While they/ you wouldn't have lost a sale because I just would have waited until it came out in Fictionwise or ARe, still it would be nice the info was easy to find because I was so resistant to sighing up with yet another epub and giving away CC info.

I wish they would have also posted what formats they offer. Was nice to find out they offer so many formats.

I'm glad I did bite it and go for it. And I bought Jude in Chains not even realizing that it's not out yet. LOL I'm such a ditz.

Kris said...

Awesome news. Congrats, KZ.

K. Z. Snow said...

Thanks, Kris and Leah.

Yikes, L, sorry about the confusion at the DSP site. At least you got it figured out. But I'm confused: Was it even possible to buy Jude in Chains in advance, or did you have to put it on a wishlist or something?

That was a really sweet thing you said about my books, by the way. Thank you. A lot.

LVLM said...

K.Z. Not your fault about DSP. It's just me griping/ wondering why epubs shoot themselves in the foot with hard to find info. But another topic for another day.

Yes, they charged me for it. I saw it, put it in the basket with The Prayer Waltz,. I kept wondering why there was no download link to JIC since TPW download link came right up after I paid. It took me a while cause I'm a ditz, but then I saw that it's not out until April. LOL

So yeah, they charged me for it already. Or it's on my paypal bill but not charged? I don't know.

K. Z. Snow said...

Hm. I didn't know DSP allowed pre-orders. I've never attempted that.

Well, you'd better be able to get the download on April 14. If not, let me know. (And raise hell with them, too!)
