Setting Up House

“All three of these books have original and unique plots, great dialogue, sweet romance, and wildly funny characters. Highly recommended!” Amazon Reader

Just right for a weekend of reading, Setting Up House, a collection of Jackie Weger’s three most popular full-length novels packed with love and laughter and adventures of the heart. Three love stories about ordinary men and women hoping for safe haven, a home and hearth, someone to love and be loved in return and a bit happiness at the end of the day.

The House on Persimmon Road ~ A story about a single mom trying to carve out a decent life for her family. If Justine Hale had the time, she’d get in her car and go crazy. But she can’t run away. She owns two kids, a cranky ex mother-in-law and a bankrupt, widowed mother.  To curb expenses she moves all into a run-down two-hundred year old house. Lottie Roberts offers to help. She’s bossy. She cooks. It’s her house. So what if she’s a ghost?

Finding Home ~ A story about an out-of-work mill girl on a quest to find her family a home. Phoebe Hawley squats in the middle of a junkyard like an old-time land grabber and refuses to budge until her family is sheltered beneath the owner’s roof, fed from his table, and clothed in his love.

The Reluctant Hero ~ A story filled with adventure, loss, survival, and hope. Rebecca Hollis is tasked with finding parents for five orphans, but instead finds herself battling the elements and more–a lonely ex Navy pilot who considers the lot of them the most irksome cargo he has ever had the misfortune to haul in his life.

No Perfect Fate 

“I just finished reading this book and the chapter before the last I was crying like crazy. It was a beautiful story with a beautiful message from Katie.”  Amazon Customer

“Loved this book. Read it with a box of Kleenex!” Amazon Customer

“I seldom leave a five-star review. I keep that for really special books–and this is one. A perfect mix of tears and laughter…” Amazon Customer

Cleo Anderson’s people skills are hesitant and her life broken, yet she is determined to leave her past behind. Alone is good and she is finding her way. On a whim, she parks her Play-mor in a fish camp in the wilds of the Okefenokee Swamp, where gators yawn, bears slumber, and snakes slither. The camp pace is slow, the owner kind, and the people friendly. Cleo encounters Fletcher Freemont Maitland and his goddaughter, eleven year-old Katie. Cleo didn’t know her life was about to unravel yet again, her heart would shatter, and that Fletcher Maitland would help her mend. But Cleo is about to find these things out the hard way. Both Fletcher and Katie will change her life and if Cleo does not learn to accept that life is bountiful and fate imperfect, she will lose both forever.

No Perfect Destiny

“As soon as I started reading No Perfect Destiny, I knew I was in the hands of an experienced author and story-teller.” Amazon Reader

“The ending will shock and surprise you. I never saw it coming. It was a very enjoyable read, I definitely recommend it!” Amazon Reader

“So wonderful I never put it down. Read the entire book in one night.” Amazon Reader

Leah Spenser owns a decrepit car, a budget that won’t stretch, and the moxie to make a decent life.

When her boss announces that someone is embezzling company funds, history begins to repeat itself. Detective Leo Garvey has her in his sights as the number one suspect and more. Leah knows she must be careful, that nothing good could come from his attraction. Leo doesn’t see it her way. Guilty or innocent, she is the one. Convincing Leah the past can only be escaped by embracing something better seems to fall on deaf ears. While Leo works to uncover the truth, Leah determines it will never surface.

No Perfect Secret

“What a delightful story. Loved the characters and their individual quirks and the hero.” Amazon Reader

“Now this is one heck of a fantastic book! I laughed so hard, I cried! I loved every single second of this book…” Amazon Reader

No Perfect Secret is a wild roller coaster ride through a brief period in one woman’s life.

A single secret begets a layer of lies.  Anna Nesmith believes she has it all–a great marriage, a dream job and a home of her own. When a State Department investigator begins asking questions, Anna’s ordered world implodes. Frank Caburn is man to the bone and manufactures testosterone like Frito Lay does chips. Instantly attracted to Anna, he is determined to make her his own–if only she can pick through the emotional rubble to find her bruised heart can love once again.

Finding Home

“OMG I belly laughed! I would give it 10*s. What a story, what characters!” cjsk avp

“This was an awesome read the characters are fantastic and you can’t help but love them. Jackie Weger has written a love story that has you wanting more about these characters and the dialogue is just awesome. Loved It!!!” Eva Aldridge, avp

“I just didn’t know what I was in for but what a wonderful surprise. This book had me laughing out loud so hard I got mad that I couldn’t stop to continue reading. So glad I didn’t miss this one.”  Toots avp 

“What a gem of a story. Witty, heartwarming, charming, and just plain lovable. If all romance novels were written this well and this entertaining I would do nothing else in life beside read.” chickenscratch avp

Fans of Cynthia Voigt will treasure the story of Phoebe Hawley, an out-of-work mill girl on a quest to find her family a home. This funny, complex read is perfect for Book Clubs. Literary Fiction.

Twenty-four year old Phoebe Hawley, on the road with two siblings, twelve year-old Maydean and five year-old Willie-Boy, is out of money, out of gas and out of patience. Now the only things she owns in abundance are Hawley backbone and Hawley pride–neither of which she can trade for food or gas. A collision with Gage Morgan puts Phoebe’s mission in even worse jeopardy–until Phoebe discovers Gage Morgan owns the perfect place for the Hawley clan. But! Gage Morgan has a bruised ego, a tight fist on his land and an iron fist on his heart and is the unlikeliest man in the universe to lend her a hand. Phoebe wields all of the pride, backbone and country smarts she owns to claim his home, plow his land and pilfer his heart. Nothing works. With time running against her family, she plies one last inducement–her scarce feminine wiles…Will it be enough?

The House on Persimmon Road

“What a wonderful, fun romance combined with a ghost story! All the way through, where I wasn’t smiling I was either chuckling or laughing out loud.” thewyzoldowl avp

“I loved this story! Who would’ve thought a ghost story wrapped into a love story?”douglas haskin avp

“This was an absolute treasure to find and enjoy !! Everything about the story and characters and location were perfect … I didn’t want it to end.” mary k welch avp

Need Help? Hire a Ghost. She Cooks.  Lottie Roberts has been sitting on her bones since the Civil War, waiting for her ticket to heaven until Justine Hale moves into Lottie’s two-hundred-year-old house with three generations of emotional baggage–her mother, her ex mother-in-law and two pesky children. Lottie senses in Justine a kindred spirit, one filled with heartache and in reduced circumstances, which mirrors Lottie’s situation exactly. Justine needs help. Lottie is of a mind to provide it, but before she can say squat, Tucker Highsmith arrives. His dark eyes, lazy grin, and sexy Alabama drawl coupled with the dern braggart’s Mr. Fix-it talents just might be the answer to all of Justine’s problems–or,  maybe not… Because Lottie has her own agenda, one she has been waiting, hoping and praying for since she discovered her bones on a hidden staircase.

The Reluctant Hero

“I started off laughing and crying and as I kept reading, I kept laughing and crying…this is the kind of book I like to read.” drbryant on Amazon.

“…abounds with adventure, romance and great dialogue. I laughed at the kids and their antics, sniffed back my tears in a few places, and cheered for the daring do until the final and very satisfying end.” rpdahlke on Amazon.

“I loved the reluctant hero, the caregiver was portrayed deeply connected to the children but not mushy, the children were clearly damaged, and a little broken, but not beaten. An action packed story.” kindle customer on Amazon.

“Beautifully written, I was up until 03:30 last night finishing this story. The interview at the end was a wonderful example of a perfect wrap-up.” ~ jaded on Amazon.

There are a few things Parnell Stillman is dead certain he will never do: He’ll never fall in love. He’ll never have kids. He’ll never be a hero. Boy! Is he in for a rude awakening.  

His first and only love is flying. The struggle to keep his air cargo business solvent is challenge enough. Rebecca Hollis believes caring for others is the road to happiness. Tasked to shepherd five orphans on a flight to a conclave to meet prospective adoptive parents, she learns it takes much more. The plane is caught helpless in the grip of a storm that sends it plunging into a frozen wilderness. Rebecca determines she and the disagreeable pilot must work together to insure the survival and rescue of the orphans. Parnell Stillman has other ideas. So do the orphans.

Thank you for visiting. So glad you stopped by. Best to you and yours from, Jackie Weger

    As most of you know The Reluctant Hero just came off of a KCD. It was a slog. the deal started on June 26 and went back to priced around midnight July 2. All of my paid promo was concentrated in five days: June 27-July 1. On the final day I used two of the free Ask David tweets. Carmen De sous plugged the title o July 2nd. that helped. I used #eNovAaW on tweets. I did about 7 FB postings. Units sold: 1073. Plus 21 units in crossover sales and a few borrows. $$$ for those 7 days 808.06. KCD sales: $708.43. I do have a nice ROI, but I haven’t figured it yet. My goal was to gain some visibility for The Reluctant Hero and pull some reviews. I am hoping for 15 reviews. 2 Five star have come in. These are the stats when the KCD closed:
    • Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,091 Paid in K-store
    o #21 in Kindle Store> K-eBooks > Litfic Humor
    o #26 in Books> Literature & Fiction > Humor
    o #62 in Kindle Store> K-eBooks>Romance >RomCom.
    Nice finish. The stats won’t hold. But the KCD was a dry run to position the title for a FREE later in the year. As far as I know 1073 paid units is not enough to place a title on popularity lists. End.

  12. Joanne Hill says:

    Fabulous results, Jackie – thanks for sharing. Glad it went so well – that Parnell deserves it!

    July 30, 2014
    Here is the wrap on the Promotion I ran 7/24-7/28 using KDP Select FREE days on The House on Persimmon Road. 27,922 Kindle owners downloaded the book. It was ranked at 94,084 at the start of the promo and once back to priced landed here: Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #6,266 Paid. It has since move UP: Rank:#4,563 Paid. Within an hour or so of going off free, there were 128 buy or borrows. The fact that it did not bounce back to 94,084 tells me it is prolly on popularity lists and generating a few sales. Early downloaders have already written about a dozen reviews. 27,922 downloads was not enough to get it to the #1 slot in TOP 100 FREE. It climbed to #9. It landed in the #! slot in Kindle Store Literary Fiction-Humor the first day and did not budge from that slot. This is where ranked at the end of the promo:
    • Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #34 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)
    o #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Humor & Satire > Literary Humor
    o #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Literary Fiction > Romance
    Here is where it ranked as soon as it went off FREE:

    • Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #6,266 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
    o #21 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Humor & Satire > Literary Humor
    o #56 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Literary Fiction > Romance.

    I think I ran a great campaign, especially since I did not have a Bookbub. My goal for 2014 was to earn $500 ROI/NET a month in royalties. Thus far I have managed to do that, plus a few $$$. It costs to campaign free or paid. Now, I’m going to focus on learning how to run Paid campaigns. We’ll see how that goes. Here’s an oddity: The #1 slot in Paid in Literary HUMOR is held by Old Girls in Low Cotton. 361 Reviews of which 212 are 1 & 2 star. Review rank 2.4/5.0. The House on Persimmon Road is #17. 256 Reviews of which 219 are 4 & 5 star. Review Rank 4.4/5.0. Go figure! Laffin’.

  14. Mike Markel says:

    Thanks for the information, Jackie. It’s going to take me a while to digest it and try to figure out what it all means.

    One thing is obvious, though: you work hard to publicize your books, and it certainly pays off. You’re an (intimidating) inspiration for those of us new to this game. I think I speak for all of us eNovelists when I say THANK YOU for helping to show us how it’s done.

  15. Stacy Juba says:

    What an impressive collection of books. Love the covers, Jackie. I am looking forward to reading your novels. More than a million books in print worldwide – amazing!

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Thank you, Stacy Juba. The stats are nice and they are real, but I already spent all of the $$$ I made on them. I love our indie digital market today and getting paid every month. Back in the day with trad publishers payday came twice a year.

  16. Jackie Weger says:

    Woot: The numbers are in: I ran a KCD on Setting Up House and snagged a Bookbub slot. Total units sold: 3015 at 99¢. Far better than a previous KCD in which I saw 1074 units sold. Amazon tagged Setting Up House a Best seller for a nanosecond. Well…glory is fleeting. But! Here it is 9 days after the Bookbub hit and Setting Up House has this: Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,935 Paid in Kindle Store. Whoa! 19 to 27 borrows a day since the set returned to full price is keeping it there. I am very happy with this KCD campaign. The Bookbub slot was $660 + I bgt other promo slots. I’m looking at a ROI of above $1000 on the KCD and the KU borrows are lagniappe ~ a little something extra.

    No Perfect Destiny

  17. Jeff Shear says:

    Jackie, put the numbers away. It’s your writing. Your book covers are beautiful and branded, yes, but it’s your copy, your easy diction and switchy wit. From No Perfect Desiny: “Every time she focused on the worrisome old thing it upset her budget.” What a clever turn. And soon after, when we learn her kid can’t be late for school, you write, “Sallie began to cry, ‘Dodie will take my puppet if I’m not there on time.’ ‘Get your books,’ directed Leah. ‘It’s only three more blocks. I’ll walk you to school, then come back and change the tire.’ Which would make her late for work.” Holy smokes! Another one of those little turns. In just 200 words, Leah’s a three-dimensiona character problems, and the fortitude to solve them. Even if she is late for work, she has her priorities. Promotion and learning the Indie drill lifted you, but it’s your work that stands out and sells..

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Well, Golly, Jeff Shear, thank you for the kudos. Much appreciated. I don’t usually have my words tossed back in my face in such a nice way. Love it.
      Much better than fried crow.

      Best to you and your books!
