Wow, What a Month!
It’s been a little while since I posted, so let me first say “THANK YOU!” to all of my readers. During February, I experimented with Bluegrass State of Mind as a free book. I was able to reach nearly 80,000 new readers during that month. And many of you went on to read Risky Shot and Dead Heat. I have been on the top ten of eBook charts for Romance on Apple, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. I have even seen multiple books hit the #1 spot on those lists during February.
Basically, I feel like the luckiest writer in the world and I owe it all to you, the readers.
With more readers, I have gotten all kinds of feedback. Numerous fans have asked about future books set in Keeneston. You’ll be happy to hear that I am in the process of editing the first book in a new series now. The new book, Bluegrass Undercover, will be released in the end of March and features Paige’s brother, Cade Davies. Other fans have reached out to tell me what characters they relate to the most. I freely admit, these comments make my day every time they come in. You all are great!
At the same time, I have had a few comments about typos and proofreading mistakes. In the spirit of always seeking to improve, I have asked for outside help in the proofreading and editing process for all of my books. I currently have Bluegrass State of Mind being re-edited by a very knowledgeable woman with many years of experience in this area. She will edit Bluegrass Undercover next to prevent delay in its release. Risky Shot and Dead Heat will follow closely behind.
I am very excited about the new Bluegrass Brothers series featuring the Davies brothers. In anticipation of the release of my new series, I thought we could have a little fun. I invite you to submit the name and a short description of your own “Keeneston” on the Kathleen Brooks Facebook page or on Twitter using the hashtag #MyKeeneston. And you can always leave your comments below. Have fun building your own perfect small town!
As I sign off to edit the final chapters of Bluegrass Undercover, I once again want to say “Thank You”. I couldn’t ask for better readers, bless your hearts! I wish you all Happy Reading!
