Echoes from the Edge - Get the word out

I heard yesterday from a bookstore that one of the main complaints the manager hears about my books is that they come out too slowly. My inner response is one of surprise, because I have published twelve novels since June of 2004. I realize that some authors are more prolific than that, but considering the size of some of my novels, I think they're coming out a pretty good pace. Quite a few popular authors are much slower, so I'm probably in the middle of the pack for speed.

One of the problems is that many readers don't know about all my books. I see proof of that when readers write to me saying, "I love your Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire series. When are you going to come out with another book?" And they have no idea that I already have three more books in the Echoes from the Edge trilogy. Then, when they read those books they write back and tell me how much they enjoyed the stories, and wonder, "Why don't more people know about them?"

I wish I knew the answer to that final question. I think anyone who enjoyed my dragons books will enjoy these as well. With Christmas shopping time getting close, maybe you'll consider checking out the first book in the series, Beyond the Reflection's Edge. Click Here for a link that will tell you more about the book, and you'll find another link there that will allow you to read the first chapter.

Teachers, these books are on the Accelerated Reader list, so they will be a great addition for your school's library.

You can buy an autographed copy of the first book for only $10 at this link, or the entire set for $27 at this link.

Those of you who have already read these books and enjoyed them, please do me a favor and spread the word. As always, I appreciate your support.

I really don't get why people don't know about these books. I have noticed that not as many stores stock them...that could be why. Maybe this falls on Zondervan's shoulders, I don't know. Stores around me stock DIOM and OOF but not EFTE ::shrugs::

These books are pretty awesome though. Strange that they aren't selling well <_<

I only saw a single copy of Beyond the Reflection's Edge at the local Family Christian bookstore. I don't recall seeing any of the sequels there, and I never saw any of them at my local Borders or Barnes and Noble.
