    My very own Best Seller

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Anthony James Barnett, Oct 10, 2008.

    I simply have to tell you about this. I'm English, living in Spain .... yet my novel, Without Reproach, made 25 on Amazon.ca yesterday (9th Oct 2008).

    It made 50 for just ONE day a few weeks ago then slipped out, but yesterday it made a terrific 25.

    It's slipped out again today, but I MADE IT for yet one more day. I did a screen save, to keep it for posterity.

    Can I call myself a best selling writer now? Wow! I'm over blown away at the moment.

    Pity there's only one review, because that's what I really pay attention to on Amazon-- but making the top 25 if only for 15 minutes is still pretty darn cool. Congratulations! :D

    *gasp!* How exciting! Whether or not it makes you best-selling is debatable, but if I were in your shoes, I'd walk around saying that I was! :p
