ONE WEEK!! Until Beauty and the Mustache

I am getting really excited, which is an uncomfortable place for me to be. I don't do well with medium to high expectations. It makes me nervous. But I just can't wait for you all to meet Drew and Ashley and her 6 bearded brothers. PRE ORDER ON AMAZON
Therefore, in summary, we have one week until the book releases and I have a serious case of ants in the pants O.o

Beauty and the Mustache up on Amazon for Pre-orders

If you are interested, you can order BEAUTY AND THE MUSTACHE now on Amazon! Recently, Amazon made it possible for all authors to use the pre-order feature for Kindle. I've had a few people ask me about the possibility of pre-ordering my books. Therefore, I've decided to make my 4th book available for pre-order.

FOR AUTHORS: 
What are the benefits of pre-ordering?
Good For Your Readers: Pre-orders are great for your readers. It allows them to pre-purchase your book and it will load to their kindle on midnight the day of release. They don't have to remember to download it on the day of/week of.
Good For BIG Authors: For big-name authors, pre-ordering is great because they are practically guaranteed to make a list (USA Today, New York Times). All the pre-orders will count toward the release day/week totals for a book for list purposes. This means if an author sells 10k in pre-orders, all 10k of the sales count as day-1 sales for list purposes.

What is the downside of pre-ordering?
Bad For SMALL Authors/Amazon Ranking: Pre-orders are counted toward ranking on Amazon as soon as they are ordered. This means, for a smaller author, the likelihood of hitting the Amazon top 100 is very slim after release day because all your readers will have ordered before the book is available and those orders have already been counted. This will decrease the visibility of your book on Amazon.

Why are you allowing pre-orders since you're a small author?
Because it's good for my readers and, honestly, I don't see this book as being very successful. It might be a great book (I think it is) but it's a challenging book. Challenging books don't typically fare well in the romance genre (or so I've been told...)  ;-)
