    Congratulations. I looked in the Amazon Bestsellers 100 but didn't see your book. What number is it at?

    Follow my link. It shows on my page the ranking. The top 100 list itself takes a while to update.

    It seems very interesting. I'll probably buy it to read more. Good Job.

    nice going.

    the thing i like about music and books is there can be a long catch up period between going to sale and people buying and liking the product.

    Very good. If you don't mind me asking, how many copies have you sold altogether?

    As someone just about to publish in the ebook ranks, I am curious how many books were needed to be sold to crack the top 100(and in what time period that is), or just how many you have sold altogether? You are obviously doing quite well with this one, and I wondered what level of sales represents that in this area so far. If you don't mind giving out that information that is. Just might be something useful for an author in my position. Thank You. Jeff.

    Congrats D.T.Roberts! The reviews sound great. I'm going to give the sample a shot and if it's as good as it sounds, I'll definitely pick it up.

    I'll definitely lend my support to any authors on this site that get to experience the wonderful feeling of being published. That being said, I'd be happy if my first novel breaks the top 1,000 let alone 100.

    The Threadcromancers strike again!

    Still, it's nice to see something encouraging today.

    Yeah, I checked the link before realising that this news is three years old, lol, and the book is ranked 144,000ish on the Kindle!
    But it is good to be reminded these things can happen, though I suspect that since the gold-rush started on ebooks this kind of news will be a rarity. A lot has happened to self-pubbing writers since 2011. Breaking into the top 100 is much, much harder now.

    Nice to see someone being successful at self publishing.

    That's wonderful. Are you going to use "Amazon top 100" in your marketing now?
