What happens when it all goes right?

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)

 

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.

Fuck.

    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.
