Every author's dream is to make the big charts- New York Times or USA Today's with their book. We dream about it and see ourselves like the Oscars accepting the award and shouting "You like me, You really like me!" However, these charts are fickle creatures. Not only do they showcase the best of writing today but of all time. I recently was looking at the USA Today chart and saw the book The Count of Monte Cristo. While I do think the book is a best-seller, I would have thought that most people would have already have read it.
All genres are represented in the charts but not equally. This makes for a tricky time getting on to the chart. In those cases it's like a popularity contest. Is erotica hot? Then you see more of those books on the list. Is dystopian stories selling? Then you see more of those on the list.
Even television and movies have a say in what goes on the list. With the recent hit of the Outlander television show, all of the books in that series are on the list. Recent books that movies were made from like Gone Girl and The Fault in Our Stars are on the list.
Cowboy Up is climbing Amazon's best selling chart. Usually that indicates that your book will also be on the other lists. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Who knows, maybe the seven authors who are a part of the Cowboy Up bundle will be able to say "Best-Selling Author" after our names. At least for now, we can say that Cowboy Up was an All Romance Ebook best seller as we sit and watch Amazon.
The Heartsong Cowboy by Melissa Keir
Can two people, one horse and the power of love cure a little girl?
Angela French blames herself for her daughter’s lack of voice. Determined to do anything to correct the situation, she seeks out Jake Kyncade, the owner of The Heartsong Ranch.
Jake Kyncade hides his own sorrows behind his no-nonsense demeanor. Helping children becomes one way to correct his past. Using equine therapy, he sets out to make a difference.
Can Jake help Angela’s dreams come true or will Jake’s past bring more heartache? Will love save them all?
With Taylor asleep on the couch, Angela snuck the magazine out of her daughter’s sleeping hands before carrying her to her bed. After making sure her baby was tucked in, she turned out the lights and went to the kitchen. She sat down at the table to study the article about the horse whisperer. The photos gave off a peaceful feeling—so much so, she longed to jump into the images. Along with the horses, there were shots of children laughing and petting the animals. The article mentioned a little boy with Down’s Syndrome whose language increased after a week of animal therapy. The Heartsong Ranch. Even the name sounds encouraging. Dare I get my hopes up?
One photo in particular captured her attention. The owner, Jake Kyncade, wore jeans and a cowboy hat as he stood next to the ranch sign. She took a deep breath as butterflies circled in her abdomen. He’s sexy. Very different from Mike. Mr. Kyncade has this wounded look in his eyes. I wonder what his trauma was. I’ve gotten better at noticing it in others. Still, he’s good looking. Probably married with his own children.
