Welcome to Sweet Hart Inn: Harbor Falls Romance #SophieJacobs

Have you visited Harbor Falls yet?

My Harbor Falls contemporary romance series is a 15-book series with huge potential for growth! In the southern and sometimes quirky small town of Harbor Falls, North Carolina, you’ll find characters to fall in love with, laugh with, and a few that will make you scratch your head.

Having grown up in a small town myself, I can relate. We’re all different but we have each other’s backs (generally!) and there is one common denominator between us all—we love small town living. Harbor Falls is no different.

In this series, you’ll be introduced to Suzie Hart Matthews, owner of Sweet Hart Inn, her family and friends, plus so many of the Harbor Falls townspeople your head may spin. Characters are woven throughout the books so you’ll find continuity with the people and setting from story to story. Minor characters in one story may have a full-blown book of their own down the road.

The Harbor Falls books are a mix of some newer, never-before-published stories and some rereleased, revised/lengthened, and rebranded stories. You may have seen some of these before but they have all now been cast into the town of Harbor Falls.

All of My Heart is the first book in the series, and is the story where we first meet Suzie Hart--
celebrity chef, bed and breakfast owner, and cookbook author--who is a prominent secondary character in quite a few of the stories, especially if matchmaking is involved!

Intrigued yet? I hope so.

The Harbor Falls books are light, carefree, small-town contemporary romance stories. You won't find a lot of angst or drama, graphic violence, or super-sexy/erotic love scenes here. What you will find are light-hearted, sometimes sensual and sometimes sexy stories that depict snapshots of the characters' lives in a small, southern town--and that snapshot just happens to be the one where they fall in love. A couple of the stories are totally sweet. Some I classify as sweeter, meaning you may read a light love scene but it is not graphically depicted for pages. One deals with a hint of very light bondage (very light). Some are humorous and take normally serious situations (like a perceived stalker) and turn it into humor. Many of the stories revolve around the food business, especially if Suzie or her cousin Sydney Hart is involved. All stories a glimpse into small town living.

I hope you try one out an enjoy! These novellas and novels are reasonably priced and if you follow me on various platforms to get new release alerts, you can grab them on sale at release time.

Did you know? Some ways authors provide #Free ebooks

Sometimes authors price books temporarily free, such as a flash sale or free promotion. Other times, authors will permanently mark books for free. Most of the time perma-free books are used to drive sales to other books. Generally, free ebooks are series starters or are books used as reader magnets (for example, book hooks to capture the reader's attention and move them toward the author's backlist).

There are various ways to offer books for free. Authors may use platforms like bookfunnelor instafreebie, and join in with other authors for multi-author free promotions. Or, those same platforms can be used for authors to leverage individually for their own personal promotions and giveaways.

Uploading free ebooks to retailers sites, so that the books are available alongside the paid backlist, is another way. Readers can find free ebooks on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo sites, among others.

Authors may provide complete novels for free, or sometimes only a sample of…
There has been a lot of discussion in writer's groups and among readers lately about book pricing, sales, free books, and the devaluation of an author's work.

Many authors worry about devaluing our work by cutting prices and under-pricing, and feel 99 cent and free books have no place in the marketplace.
I've heard readers say that when they see these low prices and free books, they wonder if the book is priced as such, because we, the author's, think it is an inferior book. One reader shared that she never buys 99 cent or downloads free books, because of that reason.
Others have shared that they get to know an author's habits about deep discounting and simply wait to buy a book until it goes on sale.
So, I'm posting my pricing guidelines, or how I price my books, and why below. Feel free to share your thoughts about pricing in the comments below, if you like.
