Unrelenting Is Here!
This is an adaptation of a post from marieparks.com.
On April 19, 2022, we became published authors! Long before we met each other, this was a dream both of us independently had since childhood, and the real-life experience has already eclipsed all our hopes.
Sales So Far
Our publisher, Not a Pipe Publishing, let us know that they consider a book that sells 500 copies in its lifetime a commercial success.
Imagine our amazement when, 1 day after launch, they reported we’d already sold 477 copies of Unrelenting.
And then, 2 days after that, they let us know we were up to 578.
There were other successes along the way, too.
Unrelenting reached Amazon Bestseller status (top 100) in the categories of LGBTQ+ Action & Adventure Fiction, LGBTQ+ Fantasy Fiction, and New Adult + College Fantasy.
It was in the top 100 of LGBTQ+ Action & Adventure for 3 straight weeks!
We had our first author booth/signing events, and had fantastic crowds! Thanks for hosting us for Independent Bookstore Day, Title Wave Books, Revised in Albuquerque, and Jessi’s neighborhood sale in California!
Plus, the book is available in stock at Title Wave Books, Revised, Page1 Books, and Organic Books, all in Albuquerque.
We’ve had a bunch of super-fun media opportunities, including the following, with more on the way! (For all Unrelenting media, please visit this link.)
- LGBTQ Reads – cover reveal and excerpt
- HasteWriting – YouTube review (with a cute dog!)
- This Podcast Needs a Title – interview
- Karen Eisenbrey’s blog – book review
- Gigi Little’s blog – cover discussion

- Lisa Haselton’s blog – interview
- Geoff Habiger and Coy Kissee’s blog – book review
We’ve had a bunch of positive reviews! So far, we have received 31 reviews on sites like Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble, with an average score of 4.81. The reviews break down like this:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 26 5-star reviews
⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 4-star reviews
⭐⭐⭐ 1 3-star review
Folks are reading our book, and it’s wild! Look at all the fun photos our friends have been sending us.
