I woke up this morning to this email from my publisher, Severed Press:
“Looks like the promo is going well. Congratulations on being the #1 best seller in horror on US Amazon!
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #74 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
- #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror
- #1 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Horror
- #1 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Sea Adventures
This came, as you may well expect, as a huge surprise. No, scratch that – a *massive* surprise. And it’s a surprise I’m not sure how to deal with. Of course I’m happy – more than happy! – but I’m all also quite, quite terrified. I’ve kind of managed to do something I’ve always dreamt of, almost by mistake. I never, ever expected Predator X to cause this kind of a stir, which means I am 100% unprepared. I’m even struggling to write this blog. It’s just mad. I made it to #1.
🙂 Thank you!
Stumbled across your blog after a friend shared a link to one of your posts on Facebook. Just wanted to say well done on your writing success. Just well done! Oh, and enjoy!
Thank you very much! It is very strange… I’m trying to enjoy it, but it certainly puts a lot of pressure on that difficult second album, if you know what I mean.
