Three days after my e-book launch of “Candied Crime” I am very satisfied, perhaps even a bit overwhelmed. Not that this will be a get-rich-quick scheme, but I have sold some copies, and people have downloaded almost twice as many free samples.

And then there are all my generous blog friends. Friends who have encouraged me to write, commented on my stories for two years, bought my collection and wished me luck here, there and everywhere.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your support, no matter in which form- without you I´d never have tried this!

And with friends like these, you won´t even need an advertising budget: 

Bernadette added “Candied Crime” to GoodReads for me and reminded me I´d have to create an author page.

Margot, José, Cathryn and Martin mentioned my launch in their blog posts.

And then there are the Danish media. I wasn´t too surprised that the local paper found “Candied Crime” worthy of mention, but I hadn´t bargained for a whole page (four columns plus a Danish flash story for the last two columns). A link to the abridged internet version – yours truly sitting comfortably in the journalist´s chair, looking at my own blog. 

I was taken aback a few hours later when the regional radio station called me to get an interview which was brought Friday morning. (I just got an e-mail from a friend who actually heard me – I was sound asleep until it was all over).

But the wonders were not even over; in the afternoon the regional TV station was on the phone: would I like to participate in a weekly program about what had happened in the region? If all goes according to plan, I should be on the screen some time Wednesday. Amazing, isn´t it? (I have dusted my living-room).
