RaShelle Workman: Three Weeks in the Kindle Top Ten!

Blood and Snow, Volumes 1 - 4 by RaShelle Workman hit the number 10 spot in the "Children's and Teen" section of the Amazon Kindle store on October 27th. The next week it climbed to number 8, and it's still on the list this week. Let's hear all about RaShelle's success with this unique book -- or I should say, four books in one.

What is Blood and Snow about?

"Blood and Snow" is a fairytale retelling of Snow White. It'll be told in 12 volumes.

Here's the summary for the first 4:

BLOOD AND SNOW: Snow White isn't an ordinary girl. She doesn't know that yet.
REVENANT IN TRAINING: Snow has become something not quite human. She must discover how to live with the changes, hopefully without killing anyone.
THE VAMPIRE CHRISTOPHER: Snow White craves blood. Especially the blood of her Hunter. But will drinking from him save or enslave her?
BLOOD SOAKED PROMISES: Snow White must come to terms with her bloodlust. It's one thing to drink the blood of her Hunter, something else entirely to drink the blood of a human.

Volume 5, "Prey and Magic," will be out November 20th, 2012.

Tell us about your path to publication.

I published my first novel, "Exiled" in November of 2011, after the mid level publisher I signed with went under. Since then I've released 7 other novels, which can be found by clicking on my author link.  It's been a hard, exhausting year, filled with ups and downs, happy dances, and bitter tears, and lots of amazing fan mail, which I've gathered from my traditionally published friends is pretty much what they go through as well. I've loved every minute of it.

What top factors do you believe put your e-book where it is now? 

Marketing. Reader interest. And, price.

How are people finding out about your book? Tell us about your marketing and use of social media.

I belong to two different author groups. We are very good at promoting each other. I also have a presence on my blog, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google +. Social Media is great to an extent. It helps readers find me. But, I believe people are finding my book because of the cross promotions I do through Free Par-Tay.
