Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since the release of our second book in the Rose Red crime thriller series, Rapunzel and we couldn’t be more pleased with the start it has made.
Within a week of its release on Amazon UK, it hit the Top 20 in its category and the top 5o in another.
On Wednesday, it even knocked our own title off the number one spot on Amazon UK in the Crime, Thrillers & Mystery Series category!
We had more sales in two weeks with this book than we had in the first three months of our first book back in November 2010! So, thank you. Thank you to our loyal readers and to the new readers joining us.
*Update as of 26/10/2012 – you wonderful readers have given us a 1-2-3 on the Amazon UK best-seller list!
Rapunzel will shortly be available on all other platforms: iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Kobo and many other ebook retail outlets. It will also be available to buy in paperback format direct from Amazon before Christmas, as will all other Saffina Desforges full-length titles. Make sure you come back soon for more information!
We hope to continue to offer you quality books at affordable prices…because our readers deserve the best.
And to celebrate that fact, and with a little nod to my personal favourite time of the year, we are pleased to introduce the first of our new short story crime thriller series Rose Red Rhymes.
Ring-a-ring o’roses is a Rose Red crime thriller series related short story and the perfect way to keep up with Red and her team whilst awaiting the next book in the series!
Here’s the blurb:
From SAFFINA DESFORGES, international best-selling author of Sugar & Spice, Anca’s Story and the Rose Red crime thriller series based on traditional fairy tales (Snow White, Rapunzel), comes ROSE RED RHYMES, a collection of crime thriller short stories featuring the Rose Red cast, based on traditional nursery rhymes.
But be warned. These are not for children!
ROSE RED RHYMES 1: Ring-A-Ring O’Roses
When a rare family day out for Detective Chief Inspector Cass Red Rose and her barrister partner Philippa Crichton-Ward QC is cut short by a murder on Blackheath, Red’s team are faced with the possibility of gang warfare and race riots among London’s troubled youths unless they can sort things. Fast.
With the Super wanting results yesterday, the pressure is on to find the killer. But DCs Barry Taylor and Jez Harris have other things on their mind. As usual. And when the pathologist examining the victim starts pointing out anomalies it’s clear a simple murder case is about to open up new mysteries.
As if Red didn’t have enough problems, the Huntsman is back in town and meeting with the mysterious Queenie. And the kids want to go trick-or-treating. Even the busiest of detectives have to make time for Halloween!
Look out for more Rose Red Rhymes coming soon!
The Night Before Christmas will be available for the holidays.
It will shortly be released on all other platforms.
Have a happy Halloween and make sure you lock those doors! ;-)
Look out for the next book in the Rose Red Rhymes series: The Night before Christmas due for release mid-December.
Happy reading! ;-)
