Monthly Archives: September 2012

The free promotion of Cheer went great.  In just three days, it was downloaded more than 9,000 times.  (Yes, people, nine thousand!)  That got me up to number two on Amazon’s list of free contemporary fiction, as these screen shots show:



So thanks to all who helped spread the word.  The other great thing about the promotion is it’s resulted in several positive reviews both on Amazon and Goodreads.

If you’ve read and enjoyed Cheer, please let me know!  I’d love to see your reviews on one of those sites or feel free to leave me a comment here.  Meanwhile, I’m noodling on the next story.  More on that  in a future post…



I’m excited to report that Cheer: A Novel is FREE today (9/20/2012) through Saturday (9/22/2012)!  Head on over to Amazon and click to download.  As a reminder, you don’t need a Kindle to read a Kindle book.  Please let your fellow bookworms know!  🙂  And if you’ve read and enjoyed Cheer, now would be a particularly awesome time to leave an Amazon review.  THANKS!

My designer and I decided to make a minor change to the Cheer cover:

We just adjusted the title color and outlining.  Do you like it?  In other news, I am super, duper (!) psyched about not one but two independent book blogger reviews.  The first is the ChickLit Club, which said, among other things, “This fabulous debut novel is written in the style of Jodi Picoult.”  The other was by a blogger at The Misfortune of Knowing.  She wrote, “In comparison [to another book she mentions], Gordon’s Cheer feels more genuine with its realistic characters and cleaner prose.”  Uh, squeeeee!
