The Jarl’s Challenge has been published for a little over a month now and what a month! The sales are WAY higher than I imagined and it makes me SO happy!
I’m an indie author. Like all other indie authors I don’t have a huge marketing budget.
This is why I’ve been so incredibly pleasantly surprised with how well The Jarl’s Challenge has been doing. The book is selling way better than I expected! I mean, are there really that many people out there who like Viking romance?
With a lot of help from my friends
As I said, i don’t have a huge marketing budget. I actually have a zero marketing budget. What I do have is a lot of help from some great friends who spread the word. Thank you so much for helping The Jarl find his readers!
I also have an amazing cover, made by The Cover Fling. I honestly think the cover of The Jarl’s Challenge is responsible for a majority of the sales. After all, who hasn’t been staring into those eyes and fallen completely in love with the Jarl?
The Jarl’s Challenge has also been receiving some really great reviews. The average review is 4.8 (out of 5) stars and here are some of them:
This is The Jarl’s Challenge
The Jarl’s Challenge is a fun story about a Jarl and the woman he wants to marry.
This is the blurb for The Jarl’s Challenge:
He broke her nose when they were children. Now he’s telling her to be his wife. Telling her, not asking her.
Borghild doesn’t have much but she has her honor. The only way to keep it is to challenge Eivind, the new jarl, to a holmgang.
Eivind is home from his long trip abroad. He’s laid claim to the throne, now he needs his childhood friend to marry him.
Borghild is as proud as he remembered. A challenge? Let the battle begin.
This Viking romance includes a fierce shieldmaiden, a warrior who loves her, a cold Scandinavian Winter, hot romance, and plenty of humor.The Jarl’s Challenge by Thyra Dane
More Viking romance
I’m so inspired by how well The Jarl’s Challenge is doing. I’d already planned on writing more Viking romance, but the great sales of The Jarl’s Challenge has made me go full speed ahead.
You can definitely expect more romance with strong women, proud men, and plenty of swords, in the future!
