New Books2Read Audio Links

Draft2Digital has just added more functionality to their Books2Read Universal Links. I already like how B2R redirects Amazon links to reader locations, and how it provides a handy display of links to smaller and international stores. This week, however, they added audio links. This is really exciting because the audiobook links appear on the same page as the ebook links.

I’ve been populating my Books2Read pages with links for the most popular audio portals. I’ve also been adding Walmart links, which aren’t always connected – there could be three links for any given book (ebook, print and audio).

Here, for example is the Books2Read page for The Beauty Bride.
Books2Read Universal Link page for The Beauty Bride, book one of the Jewels of Kinfairlie series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire Delacroix(There’s no Walmart icon for the ebook, because The Beauty Bride is free right now and Walmart doesn’t stock free ebooks.)

If you click on the book cover, you’ll be taken to a detail page for that title, which looks like this:

And finally, if you go back to the top and click “See More by Claire Delacroix”, you’ll see a page of all my books, with a featured title at the top:

I think this is a pretty handy resource. In addition, if you create a free account with them, you can select your portal of choice and be taken straight to the book’s landing page at that portal every time.

The Renegade’s Heart on the Charts!

The Renegade's Heart, #1 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixRight now, my medieval romance The Renegade’s Heart is free at all portals. I had a BookBub Featured Deal to promote the sale yesterday and wanted to share my results with you this morning.

The largest number of units always go out the door at Amazon.com, which means the book in question gets the largest bounce up the charts there. The Renegade’s Heart started at #4 in Scottish romance, #1 in Medieval romance, #75 in Romance and #417 overall free in the Kindle store. I’d already promoted it here on the blog and in my newsletter to get it started.

(The Beauty Bride is #8 free in Scottish romance this morning, so if I had a bigger screen, I could have grabbed an image including the next row of that chart.)

The Highlander's Curse, #2 of the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixThe Highlander’s Curse, book two in the same series, is also on sale – it’s discounted to 99cents.

As a result of the visibility for The Renegade’s Heart, The Highlander’s Curse also moved up the charts yesterday.

This morning at Amazon.com, it’s sitting at #22 in Scottish romance and #11 in Medieval romance on the paid charts.

The Renegade’s Heart is #12 overall free in the Apple store this morning. You can see that historical romance doesn’t tend to rank as well at Apple as at Amazon.
