Mortal Defiance Teaser #1 + 1000 Books Sold!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Okay, I promised that I would start sharing teaser from the second book of The Dark Betrayal Trilogy, and today is the day! I've picked out some good ones from scenes that I absolutely love. I hope you enjoy them too!

So to start us out right, here is a little peek into one of my favorite scenes:

“What are you doing?” Standing up, he looked at her in question.

“I have a full size bed. There’s no reason you should sleep on the floor.” Tugging him behind her, she walked to the bed.

“I can think of a few reasons."  His voice was rough with something that made Ree hot all over. "That’s the problem.”

So there you have it! Any idea who is in Ree's room? Am I a little bit mean for letting this be the first tease? Ha!

I also have some really good news. Mortal Obligation is currently on two top 100 lists on Amazon! This has been a very big month for me and my book baby. Not only have we crossed the 1000 books sold mark, I have actually managed to sell 1200 books on Amazon alone for the month of September. I am incredibly grateful for all of the love and support I have received. I am also thankful for all of my new readers. To show my appreciation, I will be throwing a giveaway next week full of some great new swag!!! Be sure to check back for a new teaser and a chance to win some fun items!

In other news, at the end of October I am getting together with a wonderful group of indie authors. We're going out to eat, a ghost tour, AND A BOOK SIGNING! I will be sure to get you the details once everything is finalized. I would love for you to come out and meet me!


  1. That's great Nichole! And for the teasers, i'm guessing it's Padon but i'm still rooting for Roland lol

  2. I'm with Stephanie. Roland doesn't strike me as the sort to even offer to sleep on the floor. :D And my only complaint is I want more. The whole thing probably wouldn't be enough for me. ;)

  3. Congratulations, Nichole! I've been intermittently watching Mortal Obligation climb the charts, and meaning to congratulate you on it. Amazing success! Do you think this is the result of lots of promotional work, or has the book been selling itself?

  4. Oh.My.Gosh Nichole!! No fair! I am hoping she is talking to Roland, but it would be ok if its Paden too!

    Congrats on the success... However, I am not surprised... as you know I am a big fan!

  5. Love the teaser! Makes me antsy for me! And kudos to you for your amazing book sales!

  6. Thanks, everyone for stopping by! Sorry, I had to leave you hanging. ;) I can't wait to see what you all think of Mortal Defiance.

    Chrysoula, I hope it is a combination of both! I don't think that I have done much more promotion than anyone else, but I did devote several weeks after the release to promote. I contacted bloggers, did a couple guest posts, and participated on Goodreads and Twitter. Most of the blog reviews did not go live until this month, nor did the guest posts. I was lucky enough to win an ad on the Frugal EReader and I participated in the Indie Book blowout for Labor day. I also decided to leave the price for the ebook at .99 after the IBB, and it seems to have been a good plan.

    I wish I could give you a better idea, but honestly, I think it was a combination of a lot of things. Hopefully it sticks! :D


  7. I feel like you've given me a pretty good idea! I'm just very interested in the ways in which some books seem to sell a lot of copies and others don't-- I suspect in the end it comes down to the book, although I bet the ad helped get it the attention it deserved!

  8. Wow Nichole!!! Truly, truly AWESOME!!! Congrats, girl!! Whoo-hoo!!!!

    And awesome teaser too! ;) Congrats on EVERYTHING!!!

  9. I am so excited for you and I can't wait to read the new book!! Thanks for the teaser but it's killing me!!

  10. Great job Nichole! I'm pumped that you and your book are doing so well! :)
    I've bought Mortal Obligation, I just haven't gotten to it yet due to my ever-growing need to read list.

  11. Congratulations Nichole. It's so good to watch your success. I can only dream of something similar...

  12. Oh yum! Love the teaser! Can't wait for the second book!
