The Anatomy of a Romance Book Purchase

Mermaid CarleneBack in April of this year, I happened to sign on to Twitter as I randomly do maybe a couple times a week.
I saw a tweet from a blog that always catches my eye because it’s super pretty and has a great name—Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust.
The reason this particular tweet jumped out at me was for the short mention of a first name very dear to my heart in the spotlighted book’s title.
I clicked the link to check out the post.
It was a spotlight on a new release by an author who was new to me.
I read the post and commented, answering the question the author posed to the blog readers.
I thought, “That’s a great sounding book. I love the cover. The name in the title makes me smile.”
I thought I should go ahead and purchase that book then and there.
But as things often work out this way, something else popped up and I had to abandon my lovely book-buying thoughts.
Time passed.
Four months to be exact.
Many other book purchases took place.
Today I signed on to Twitter as I randomly do maybe a couple times a week.
I saw a tweet from a blog that always catches my eye…Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust.
A-ha! A reminder about that book….
I searched for that book with that special name in the title and the cover I’d admired so much.
Success! I found the original post.
I immediately hopped on over to Amazon where I typed in the author and title and hit purchase before an errand or a phone call or an important email sidetracked me again.
Time cycles each of our days this way and that. This was the anatomy of how a book landed on my Kindle today. I can’t wait to crack it open and start reading.
The book: The Awakening: AidanAidanTheAwakening-AbbyNiles
The author: Abby Niles
The referring blog: Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust
