Arcana, by gipsika.

The Light Path, the Dark Path. When Ivy Pennington, a sensible, intelligent young woman, plummets head-first into the occult, her biggest problem is trying to explain that she is simply not interested. Soon the storms of dark magic rage around her. Will she perish in the gruesome maelstrom? Or will she, like her kitten Peridot, land on her feet? A fast-paced read peppered with humour, deadly intrigues, magical khazam and a bit of romance.

Top – flipping – rated seller on Ebay!!

What??  And how come the author doesn’t know about this?  How did it get onto Ebay – via Amazon?  And btw – honestly – how can it be a top-rated seller at the prices they are selling it for??

Ok, Arcana has bravely held its position on the Browse page of Epub Bud for – pretty much since 2013 when we put it there.  I blame the gorgeous cover my surprising husband created for it.  But…?

So somehow this is a top-rated seller, and…  I’m not even aware it was visible??

… wow …

It’s late.  This will bear investigation tomorrow.  I wonder what exactly is going on there.

  1. Remember how authors dream of getting rich and famous? We’ll leave the rich part out and there you are! Congratulations!

    • 🙂 Eloise I think I must kill this post. It downright scares me. The lots of downloads may be illusions; or if they are real I may be handling it completely wrong! It’s one of those lightbulb-went-off moments.

    • Yes – and some actually don’t even lead to the book. I found that with a lot of titles. It’s sites that “hijack” one’s book profile (cover & description) to get viewers to click through to their site, whatever the site is.

      It’s weird anyway. The only thing I do know for certain is that the book is still on the “Browse” page of Epub Bud with 25000+ views by now. That’s quite sweet. I’m following the trail on Ebay. I guess there are affiliates marketing titles.
