Bestselling Author

Something weird happened yesterday. I have no idea why, but one of my Truman Smith books, Murder Takes a Break, shot up the Nook bestseller list like a rocket. About the time I was going to bed, it was headed for the top 10. Don't know if it made it, but it sold a heck of a lot of copies. Dead on the Island was headed upward, too. I hope this keeps up. It's a nice feeling.

Update: Didn't make the top 10, but got to #16. Nora Roberts, Hunger Game, and little stuff like that kept me down. Got to #1 on the Mystery List, however, with two other books also on the list!

Update: Made the top 10 overall list today! Woo-hoo!

Some upstart.

I've often what these ranking mean in real numbers. I think I jumped about a half a million places on Amazon once on the strength of 3 sales. Nevertheless, I'm glad for you.

Would be better if the numbers were for Kindle, but they're pretty amazing, to tell the truth.

No, but whatever it was, I'll be happy to have it happen again.
