The Kindle Scout Challenge

Yes. It's true.

I've been traditionally published, indie published, and now I've dipped my toe into Amazon's Kindle Scout program. This publishing option is a win-win for both readers and writers. If accepted, Kindle Scout features the first chapter of a new release for free reads. After a 30-day campaign, Amazon decides whether or not to offer a contract and advance on the book based on reader feedback. The indie author retains power and control over the story, while Amazon takes care of promotions and sales. It's a wonderful concept!

My Kindle Scout book, A Pirate at Pembroke is now available for a "sneak peek." I'm so excited for the upcoming release of my new book, and I hope you are, too. This full-length novel is a delightful tale of family, friendship, and love at first sight.

So now, my post request--I'm going to need your seal of approval (vote) after reading it at Kindle Scout. Click here!

Here's a summary if you want to know more:

Sophie Crestwood is never going to catch a husband, and she isn’t even sure she wants one. Her father is a gossip, her mother always has her nose in a book, and little Jack has shamefully been dismissed from boarding school. Worst of all, a pirate moves next door into Pembroke Hall! 

When Sophie's sent to a matchmaking party at a neighboring estate, the pirate from Pembroke arrives and distracts everyone from the summer festivities. Unguarded, her feelings about the mysterious Captain Murdock bloom into a trusted friendship that Sophie fears may come to mean much more than anyone would ever suspect. 

Keeping company with a reputed pirate is one thing but falling in love with him could ruin the eccentric Crestwood family for good. 

Check out the opening pages of A Pirate at Pembroke today.

Thank you in advance and happy reading!

Stay balanced,
Danielle Thorne
