“I have a book for you.”

So this stuff really happens? Earlier today, a reader (that’d be Brooke) nudged me with a link to this blog post, in which Ilona Andrews reviews a book that was recommended to her (that’d be by Brooke). The book … Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox (Amaranthine Saga, #1). And Ilona … a bestselling author with a large following & my new hero. Because in a matter of twelve hours, THIS happened.

So this is what it’s like to climb the Kindle sales charts! Tsumiko is doing well in categories like Fantasy, Romantic Fantasy, Paranormal, and (go figure) Werewolves & Shifters. Needless to say, it’s been an exciting day, and I’m grateful to everyone who took a risk on a new-to-them author. And, of course…

Thank you, Brooke! Thank you, Ilona!

Reminder: Review Challenge

As I mention in my original challenge post, reviews are a practical necessity for any author and quite possibly the BEST way any reader can lend their support. My current showing on Amazon is skimpy at best. If you’ve been meaning to post a review, let this weekend’s festivities be the perfect excuse. I’d be even more grateful than I already am.
