"The Enchantress" is up on Smashwords!

I've finally gotten around to putting my short story "The Enchantress" up on Smashwords. All of you that liked the characters from my Challenge entry, you can read more about them right here for free! I hope you will not be disappointed. There's also a bonus story at the end.

If you take the time to read it, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a review. Even a negative one would be useful, at least I'd know what I'm doing wrong :). It would be great getting some feedback from people. If this one goes well I have a few more short stories involving these characters just waiting to see the light of day.

Thank you all for dropping by!


  1. Hi Daina:

  2. Hey, Stuart. I'm looking forward to The Rule of Three. I wanted to leave a comment on the page where I registered, but it looks like there isn't an option to leave a comment there, or perhaps I missed it somehow.

  3. Hi Daina, pleased to meet you! I've out your short story on my TBR list. Love the cover! And to echo Stuart, welcome to the Rule of 3 Blogfest!

  4. Thanks, J.C., for the welcome, and for putting my little story on the list :D Really looking forward to the Rule of Three!

  5. Hi Daina. I came here from Rachael Harrie's campaign blog, and am now your newest follower, so:

    Nice to meet you!

    As to your post, congratulations. It sounds like a great story. Congratulations on getting it published!

  6. Daina ~
    Thank you for the feedback on my novel and that cover issue. In a later post, I raised the two problems I've encountered - namely the cover issue and secondly - in a few instances where I've included Slovakian - three to be exact, the special character did not translate into the text when I uploaded! So frustrating, as I have not been able to come up with a 'fix'. Sigh.
    I will be looking at your book/adding it this afternoon. I think it's great that my MC has a name that also holds meaning in your language! I knew that Croatian and Slovakian were similiar, but I guess I didn't realize just how similiar.
    As for sales, I've sold 35 copies since the book went live on 9/2/11. But, 21 of those were due to the coupon I offered on Smashwords. As a new author with no name whatsoever, I'm just glad to be getting the book into reader's hands.
    Thank you again for taking the time to offer me feedback (and for the tip about the cover).
    Hope to see you again soon ~ Nadja

  7. Hi Daina,
    Finally making my way around to the Beginning Blogger campaigners. I will have to read your sample.

    Nice to meet you!

  9. I posted a review on the site. Only gave it a three rating because of the minor edits I saw. When those get corrected, I'll change my rating.

    And yes, I liked the cover.

    Thanks for the review, it is much appreciated! What are the edits you saw, so I can correct them?
