Sunset on Khao Lak beach in Thailand.I’m thrilled to report that my digital book sales surpassed 4.6 million units this month, which is an amazing number of copies sold. In July of 2014, I was also informed that I was the Amazon KDP BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ALL TIME! Yay!

I’m so excited that readers from all around the world have been discovering my books. I’m currently selling worldwide on Amazon, Apple iBooks, Google Play, Kobo, and Nook. These amazing retailers have provided wonderful opportunities for writers to put their work out into the world, and I’m so grateful for all of their support. 

This past year, I’ve turned my focus toward the global market and have begun translating some of my titles. I’ve translated three books into German, two books into Spanish and five books into French. Check out my Foreign Editions page for more information.

I’ve also been producing audiobooks through ACX, and the first five books in my Callaway Series are now available in audio as well as the three books in the Wish Series. You can hear samples from the audio editions here!

And for those of you who love books in print, I’ll be announcing some very exciting news in the next few months, so stay tuned …

In the meantime, I hope you’ll explore my website. THAT SUMMER NIGHT is currently out and WHEN SHADOWS FALL (#7) will be out September 18, 2014 with SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW (#8) coming in January of 2015. 






Barbara FreethyWhoo-Hoo – I just got some really exciting news! Amazon just told me that I am currently the bestselling author of all time on the KDP Platform, which is the self-publishing platform that Amazon set up about 5 years ago.

As many of you know, I was traditionally published for many years but began self publishing my books in 2011. Since then I’ve sold over 4.2 million units and according to Amazon, their bestselling author of all time! I know I had to repeat it again, because it’s so amazing! 

I have all my wonderful readers to thank for supporting my books. I appreciate each and every one of you, especially those of you who have written to tell me you have read every single one of my books. I can’t tell you how honored I am by that commitment to my stories. That Summer Night

So it’s back to writing. I’m excited to bring you the next book in the Callaway Series – THAT SUMMER NIGHT, on June 19th. 

In the meantime, hope you’ll check out the earlier books in the series and/or any other titles that you may have missed along the way.

I have had a database expert compiling all my numbers for the last three years since I began self publishing and I’m so happy to report that sales have just passed 4.2 million paid units of my self-published books. These numbers don’t include any of the sales made through traditional publishers, so it’s pretty amazing! And I’m doing a little happy dance as I finish writing the 6th book in my Callaway Series THAT SUMMER NIGHT, coming to all retails on June 19, 2014! 





Between Now And Forever 120So happy that the fourth book in my Callaway Series BETWEEN NOW AND FOREVER just the hit the NYT Times Bestseller List at #25 and the USA Today Bestseller List at #61! Whoo Hoo! Thanks to all of you who are loving the Callaways.

BETWEEN NOW AND FOREVER is one of my favorite stories. I had Nicole and Ryan’s story in mind from the very beginning. This couple needed to find a way back to each other. I loved telling their son’s story as well and a lot of you have told me that this book really tugged at your emotions, which I’m thrilled about.

I’m very excited to see my romantic suspense DON’T SAY A WORD on this week’s New York Times Bestseller List. It comes in at #11 on the Ebooks list and #17 on the Combined Ebooks/Print list. If you haven’t read this title yet, you might want to check it out. It has over 650 reviews with an average of 4.5 stars on Amazon alone and hundreds of reviews on the other retail sites as well. It’s one of my personal favorites. It started out with a simple idea: What if you saw a famous photograph of a young orphaned girl standing at the gates of a Russian orphanage and she looked exactly like you, but you’ve never been to Russia, and you weren’t adopted, so what explains the uncanny resemblance…
