My Own Amazon Bestselling Hot New Release!!
Goodness gracious! My novel Revelation, which came out on Kindle last week, is suddenly Number 11 on the Amazon list of Bestselling Books on Mysticism and New Age Religion. That is, as of 4:00 p.m. Friday. These figures and lists are updated hourly.
Here's the page: http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books/12673/ref=pd_zg_hrsr_b_2_4_last Not only was it that high on the list, but it was showcased with two other books (one on runes and one on "Fringe-ology") up in the corner of the page as a "Hot New Release." I hope it's still there, should you pop in for a look.
This is only the second time one of my books has been near a bestseller list. The first time was when Sister India was for one week a bestseller in the bookstores of New Delhi.
No way is this anything like what it takes to get on The New York Times bestseller list. Still, I'm thrilled.
How did this happen? Well, I put it on sale. Dropped from $4.99 to $.99. What a difference an 80% price break makes.
I was only going to keep it at that rate for a day, but I'm enjoying the limelight so much I think I may give it another day.
Revelation, BTW, is about a minister at a liberal college town church who starts hearing the voice of God — an experience that threatens his job, his marriage, and his mental health. When the book it first came out in hardback, The New York Times said it was "very good….You want to find out what is going to happen."
