Hey guys :) I wanted to take a few minutes to fill you in on some awesome things that are happening with the JAL Series. As most of you may already know, Apple Australia and Apple New Zealand featured Just a Little Crush as one of their Breakout Books back in December. The feature spot drummed up a lot of buzz about the book (which has collected over 190 reviews on the Australia site, and 21 reviews in New Zealand). Many readers have gathered here on the website (and in my inbox) to express their love (and even requests!) for Julie and Luke’s story. I’ve made so many great connections with you guys; I’ve loved every second of our discussions about the series. And none of this would’ve been possible without that extra exposure!
But things just keep getting better (all thanks to Apple and Smashwords). Apple’s iBookstores in the U.K. and Ireland launched a new Breakout Books promotion featuring almost 40 Smashwords books. Just a Little Crush was included! Let’s all take a minute to say ‘yay’!
Feel better? I certainly do! :)
Here’s a direct link to the book in Apple’s iBookstore in the UK and Ireland: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/just-a-little-crush/id587902316?mt=11
Please click here to learn more about this Breakout Books promotion at the Smashwords Blog (and who knows, maybe you’ll discover some new writers to follow and share your love with!).
Next, I wanted to share a link to my first ever author interview with Karleen Tauszik of kidsebookbestsellers.com. This was a fun experience :) I look forward to (hopefully) doing this again in the future with other bloggers.
If you’ve enjoyed the series so far, please take a moment and share this great news on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts. Maybe one of your friends will like it too! :)
OH! And don’t forget to pick up your copy of Just a Little Insecurity.
