Please "tag" my books

You can help readers find books easier on by “tagging” them.

Think of a tag as a keyword or category label.”
If you have made a purchase on Amazon, your tags are visible immediately; if you haven’t yet made a purchase, the tags stay “hidden” until you do (a great incentive for buying my books! ;> )
You can “tag” a book with the author’s name, the name of another book in the series/or by the author, the genre, or some topic that stands out about the book. For instance, in Bartlett’s Rule both lead characters worked for a publisher, so you might tag that book “publisher”…
So would you please go to Amazon and tag my books? (I’ve even made a few suggestions for what to use for a tag)
romance, love story, rape survivor
romance, intrigue, national security
romance, police, suspense
romance, computers, male survivor
…and yes, you can tag ANY author’s books – I am sure they would appreciate it. I do.

A little favor please…

Imagine my surprise when I learned that 2 of my novels, the anthology that I am in and my name (as author) were nominated in the current Preditors & Editors poll!

Would you please go vote for me?

You can only vote ONCE in each category.Here are the choices:
Bartlett’s Rule by Chelle Cordero
Within the Law by Chelle Cordero
(Book titles are listed alphabetically and you can only vote for ONE [I voted for Bartlett’s Rule])
Chelle Cordero
Forever Friends Mandinam Press

Thanks for your help!

In With the New, Out With the Old

No, I am not talking about the New Year – although that is a little more than just a week away.

I am talking about book covers. Book covers attract readers, at least a recent poll I’ve taken says that 30% of readers pick up a book because of the book cover (40% said they pick up a book because of author name recognition)… You can go to the post before this one to enter your own votes in this poll.

Two of my novels are putting on new faces: Bartlett’s Rule, first published by Vanilla Heart Publishing in April 2008 – and Courage of the Heart being re-released by Vanilla Heart Publishing in late January (it was first published by “another press” in 2001)

Bartlett’s Rule


Courage of the Heart


About the NEW Bartlett’s Rule cover – While the original design got a lot of kudos, some readers told us that they thought a slightly older and more sophisticated couple would better represent Paige and Lon. We listened! And here is the exciting result:

When Courage of the Heart was first published in 2001, the publisher did not provide cover design in our contract – and I did not know how crucial an attractive cover was to book sales. The soon-to-be-released updated Courage of the Heart from Vanilla Heart Publishing was fitted with an intriguing, sexy cover that is sure to catch many eyes! Kimberlee did a terrific job with design to come up with this:

So please everyone –
keep your eyes open for my books…
some bookstores even have them
right on the store shelves
(and if yours doesn’t,
ask them WHY NOT?

You can also order my books online from Barnes & (or go to their IN-Store info desk), or direct from the publisher Vanilla Heart Publishing.

Bartletts Rule Forgotten Within the Law Courage of the Heart…and by the way,

Easy to get & Great reads when you are snowed in!

I just posted this info on another site and decided it might be helpful here too. Did you know that EACH of my novels is available in THREE formats?

Yes! Each of my novels is available in good-old-fashioned print as well as Kindle from Amazon – and also in easy downloadable .pdf. So, whether you like the feel of a book’s pages under your fingers or you are looking to get the novel instantly and save on shipping – you got it.
Bartlett’s Rule – Bartlett’s Rule shares the story of Lon and Paige’s love affair; a romance filled with hardship, emotion, danger and triumph. Falling in love was never the challenge; being there for each other, knowing just what to say and making it work is the real test. Paige and Lon are real ; they are human, they cry and they laugh. Paige has to learn to trust. Lon has to learn to be patient.
Forgotten – Forgotten is an unforgettable romance about two people who meet by chance, love by choice and are torn apart by intrigue. Their romance survives a foreign threat to national security, kidnapping, personal tragedy and a murder attempt.
Within the Law – Tom gave up on ever falling in love again the day that he buried his high school sweetheart and fiance. He started a career in law enforcement just so that he could find her murderer and rapist. Just when he is about to see justice done, he meets Alli Davis-the defense attorney for the murdering rapist who took his love from him. Alli and Tom share a mutual and passionate attraction but Alli refuses to make any commitments. She is hiding a huge secret. Tom falls in love with her and pursues her despite a false arrest, kidnapping and attempt on his life. Forgotten and Within the Law are two highly sensual, romantic and edge-of-your-seat tales. Although Forgotten and Within the Law are two separate stories, they are woven together by a common thread-cousins Caitlyn Smythe and Tom Hughes. Some favorite characters appear in both novels and allow the reader to become totally absorbed into the family.

And please be sure to let me hear your feedback! Post your reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, Barnes & Noble or send me an email ( and I will post it here.

By the way – several bookstores throughout our country have ordered my books for their shelves – so be sure to ask if there is a Chelle Cordero novel in the store.
