Edit 12/31: Last evening and today I no longer could find the paperback of Sing by searching the title. I had to put in the ISBN number (1456450913) to bring it up. However, today the description is up and the paperback and Kindle edition are linked, although the reviews don’t show for the paperback version yet. So the easiest way to get to the paperback is to bring up the Kindle edition’s page and then click on the paperback link. My guess is the search problem will disappear in the next few days. It’s odd to me the way books come up little by little on Amazon like this. As a former IT person, I’d love to know why that is, but much as I love Amazon, I’m not going to apply for a job there to find out.
Also, while I know most of you who follow here are romance readers, I also know at least a few of you have also read my mystery, Rottweiler Rescue. Red Adept is doing best books of 2010 on her blog, and Rott Rescue was her #1 Runner Up in the mystery category (that means 4th overall as she gave 3 places).

As of last night when I checked, the paperback version of Sing My Name is up on Amazon. You have to search the title, and it doesn’t come up at the top of the search result with the Kindle version but about 5 down the list, but it’s there. It also doesn’t have a description yet and isn’t linked to the Kindle version, but that will come over the next few days.
AND when I opened my email this morning, there was a message from Lee Brewer of All About Romance telling me a review of Sing is up on their site. She gave me a link to the review, but that link takes you to the full review. Better, IMO, on their home page, there is an image of Sing‘s cover together with the beginning of the review and a link to the entire thing. AND the reviewer rates Sing as a DIK (Desert Isle Keeper)! I didn’t think AAR did reviews of indie books so this is a super surprise in several ways.
For those of you who like taking part in romance forums, but who have given up on the Amazon ones, All About Romance seems like a pretty nice place. I haven’t joined because there are discussions on both my books so it seems sticking my nose in wouldn’t be right, although it looks like they have an author area and someday I’ll get around to checking that out. There really are too many neat online places to keep up with them all.
Happy New Year, everyone!
