I'm not proud. And I'm not ashamed to ask for help, so imagine me on my knees begging you wonderful and supportive peeps to PLEASE download Tangled Tides from Amazon today (or even tomorrow or the next day). It's FREE. All it takes is a minute of your time, but the more downloads I receive, the better my Amazon ranking is, and as most of you know, a great Amazon ranking does wonders.

So please, I beg of you, help a poor struggling author break the top 10k on Amazon. It's my one and only wish in life. (Okay, that's a lie. I wish for lots of stuff, and most of it is much more meaningful than my Amazon ranking, but for today it really is a big wish of mine.)

I promise to pay it forward whenever you need help from me. Just email me and be like, "Hey, Karen, you owe me from that time I downloaded Tangled Tides for free, so I'm cashing in and need you to give me a kidney." (Or whatever else you need from me. And if I'm out of kidneys when you ask, I will figure out something else to donate to you instead.)

Plus, if we ever hang out in person, I'll buy you a mermaid martini. (Simon, Matthew, do you hear me? I'll buy you a COCKTAIL! Tail, get it? Ha. Okay, lame sea joke.)

PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE with a cherry and whipped cream and sprinkles and hot fudge and peanut butter sauce on top.

Here's the link.

Again, it's FREE! FREE. Only takes a minute of your time and NO MONEY.

Thank you in advance.


  1. Done. And...tweeted.

  2. I keep meaning to pick this up, it looks so good! And now I have it ^_^

  3. I already have it from your publisher, but I downloaded it anyway! And shared it on facebook.

    And if you really want to pay me back... :-)

  4. You're hilarious. Like we can possibly owe YOU for giving us free stuff. I'm off to re-share and all that jazz.

  5. Oh, but I will take that cocktail.

    :grins like a gorgon:

  6. I just downloaded it and wish you the best of luck! :-)

  7. Already paid for a copy but I tweeted! Good luck!

  8. Downloaded a copy, tweeted, and mentioned it on Facebook. Hope you get tons of downloads and even more sales!

  9. Done! Retweeted and downloaded. Can't wait to check it out.

  10. You all rock my world! Thank you SOOO much. I've been replying individually via email but a couple of you have it set for no email replies, so just wanted to post a public THANK YOU!

  11. I downloaded a copy on my husband's Kindle. Since it was free, I feel like I owe you a martini! Next time we're both at a writing conference or something...
