Miss D. is following the progress of my novel's sales far more closely than I am (I'm concentrating on Book 2 of the series, which comes out in July, and hoping for long-term rather than only short-term sales success). This morning she giggled as she said, "Guess what?" This is what she'd found.
That's right - at the time of writing, 'Take The Star Road' is:
- 17th on Amazon's list of 'hot new releases' in Science Fiction e-books overall;
- 7th on its list of 'hot new releases' in military SF e-books; and
- all the way up to 3rd place on its list of 'hot new releases' in Space Opera SF e-books.
The lists change from hour to hour, of course, so there's no guarantee it'll stay that high: but just to reach the first page of results in all those categories is wonderful! As for being in the top 3 in a category . . . that's just too cool for school!
Thank you all very much for your support, and particularly for spreading the word about my first novel. I couldn't have done any of this without you. Also, if you've read it but not yet posted a review on Amazon.com, please do so - new readers often make purchasing decisions based upon reviews. Thanks muchly!
