A big "Thank You!" to all my readers
Thank you very much to all my readers who've bought, and helped spread the word about, my new novel, "The Stones of Silence".
It was uploaded to Amazon.com last weekend, and officially published on Monday, May 14th. It shot up the charts very quickly, briefly reaching a peak at #935 in the entire Kindle Store. To crack the top 1,000 books (out of over 6½ million in the Kindle Store, both paid and free) is very hard to do, so I'm grateful to all of you for making it possible.
It's currently at #18 (out of the top 100 books) in Hot New Releases - Space Opera, and #9 in Hot New Releases - Colonization, both part of the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre.
All of those ranks will change fairly quickly, of course, depending on day-to-day sales, and the entry of newer books that will push older publications down the ranks in their turn. Nevertheless, I'm very pleased.
If you've read and enjoyed the book (or even if you didn't enjoy it), please leave a review at the book's page on Amazon.com! They're critically important to the ongoing success of any independent author. I'll be very grateful. So far there are five reviews up, four five-star and one four-star. To those five readers, a special thank you!
Now to finish editing the second and third books in the trilogy. Look for them next month and in July, with print editions to follow.
