"Carried Away" is in the Top 5 in the category of Christian Romance, and it's also the third most downloaded book in Fiction (Young Adult/Teen-Chic-Lit), so it has gained appeal in two different categories which isn't an easy task for any story.
The short summary for "Carried Away":
Every rebel has a cause, and Carrie's is to escape her strict religious upbringing. She runs away after her eighteenth birthday to chase her dream of being a famous actress, but she eventually learns that her dreams collide with reality and she's left with only one decision: to return to the life she ran away from.

The following stories have achieved a significant portion of the Young Adult/Teen Chic-Lit Category on Smashwords:
"Nymphos and Maniacs" #1
"When You Fall in Love With Nastassja Kinski"- #9
Four of the top ten downloads are stories I have written, and within the top 15 seven of the most downloaded titles are ones I have written in that category. Each story has a uniquely different from the others, so to achieve such a high success rate with writing different stories is quite an accomplishment and tell me that a lot of people apparently enjoy the variations as opposed to reading one book that's part of a continuous series that feature the same situations and characters.

"Tumbleweeds" was selected by the editors of Frontier Tales Magazine which features only the best Western authors.
They are very selective about what they publish and have very strict submission guidelines. "Tumbleweeds" is part of the New American Western collection of short stories that often feature women as the lead character. This particular story is about a woman that catches the attention of a cowboy, but she isn't very receptive and has ignored every single man that has approached her in the wild and loud saloon they're in. The cowboy walks outside to think about what's going on with this solitary woman. It's not to long after that when he faces temptation from the very woman that didn't seem the least bit interested in anyone. This is the second time a story from "New American Western" has been chosen to be in a magazine that features Western authors. The first story was "No.3" which was featured in The Bullpen section on Rope and Wire.com
