I got a nice surprise last night upon logging into Amazon. Typically, I check my sales rank and stats a few times a day, just to see what my books are doing, and to determine if I need to adjust anything marketing-wise to get my books in front of more readers.
Late last night I decided to check in and find out how Invasion and Incursion were doing and saw this when I searched for my name:
In case you missed it, what got me pumped was that little orange “Best Seller” tag above the listing for THEM Invasion. My book hit #1 in Western Horror yesterday, and apparently when your book hits #1 in a genre category, Amazon marks your book listing with that graphic.
So, there I was at 11:45 last night, bugging my wife to come look at the computer screen. Yeah, I was pretty excited. And because of this small milestone, I wanted to quickly post to say thanks to everyone who has supported the series thus far.
I know that there are tons of great books and many fine authors who languish in obscurity, so I am very grateful that people are finding and reading my books. Whether you’ve purchased one of the books, downloaded it for free during a promotional day, read it through Kindle Unlimited, shared it with your friends, or left me a positive review – thank you. Those small gestures of support add up, and every one of my readers has contributed to getting Invasion to #1 in category on Amazon.
And of course, there’s more to come. I just finished the final edit and review on Counteraction yesterday afternoon and sent it off to my very talented layout editor at Knite and Day Design. So hopefully I’ll have it ready to publish on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited by the end of next week (that’s if I didn’t send her a manuscript with mangled formatting – I am hell on Word documents).
So again, thanks for all your support! And please, follow me on Facebook and give me your ideas and feedback on the books. Your input WILL have an impact on future books in this series, and on spinoff novels and series that I have planned.
