On Amazon.com, anyway.
The very first book that I ever published, The Vampire’s Kiss, continues to work its little heart out over at Amazon. I was over at Amazon today to see if the cover for Secrets, Volume 21: Primal Heat was up, and I decided to check up on my vamp book.
Published in March of 2005, The Vampire’s Kiss had the following rank (at 1:57 p.m.–because I know those rankings change pretty much every hour!):
Amazon.com Sales Rank: #13,011 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)
#51 in Books > Romance > Gothic
#53 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Horror > Vampires
Cool. I thought that was pretty neat.
Thank you to everyone who has read this book–and thanks for all of the great emails and letters I have received. I appreciate all of the support that the fans of this tale have given to me! Thanks for making The Vampire’s Kiss an Amazon.com best-seller!

Cherokee of Coffee Time Romance sent me an advanced review of A RED HOT NEW YEAR. This is what she had to say about the anthology: “A Red Hot New Year lives up to its name and more. The refreshing characters are quite interesting in their own way and leave an impression with the reader. These fine authors have penned four stimulating stories that sizzle hotter than fireworks on the fourth of July. Each read weaves some simmering seduction between the pages that is quite entertaining. Bold, sassy, and explosive, these stories will have you begging for more. “
And, regarding my novella, New Year’s Bites, Cherokee wrote: “I found this story thrilling. I love the interaction of the characters. Anna and Jon are terrific together and leave a lasting impression with the reader. Cynthia Eden creates an intriguing read full of hot, steamy passion that brings out more than the animal. Anna and Jon inflame the pages while staying one step ahead of the obstacles that continue to get in their way. This story takes a bite and does not let go.”
Yay! Thanks so much, Cherokee!
When the full review is posted at Coffee Time Romance, I’ll post a link.

It’s been about two weeks since I worked on a manuscript, and I’m starting to get twitchy. Time to get back in the saddle and start cranking out another story.
I like to take a break between books. Rest my mind. Let the characters drift away from me so that I can start fresh. But, if I go too long without writing, well, I really start to miss the process.
And the twitchiness ensues.
For the other writers out there, does this happen to you, too? When you’re between stories, do you feel the gnawing drive to get back to a new WIP? I think two weeks might just be my limit. So, starting Monday, I’ll begin a new manuscript. Since I’ve just gotten an offer on my house (woo-hoo, finally!) and will have to move out of the current place and into the new home in about three weeks, I won’t have as much time to devote to the new story as I’d like. I’ll aim for five pages a day, half of my normal output, but that should be enough to stop the withdrawal shakes.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
