Children of the Fog makes Amazon's Top 100 Bestsellers list - at #18

It has been an exciting few days, starting on March 7/8 with my free giveaway of my paranormal suspense thriller CHILDREN OF THE FOG. On the second day after the freebies, my thriller made Amazon's Top 100 Bestsellers list, something I've only accomplished once before with WHALE SONG.

CHILDREN OF THE FOG made it as low as #7, according to my father who was watching my stats. It currently sits at #18, on the first page of the bestseller list--a place authors would give anything to be.

From the beginning of this year I've said 2012 would be my year. And it's off to an amazing start. With major exposure on Amazon I've sold more books than ever before, have tens of thousands of new readers, have received wonderful fan mail and numerous 5-star reviews, and I've achieved one of my major goals--to get on Amazon's Top 100 list.

And by the way, I'm not talking about the Top 100 genres lists, which I've been on with every book I've written, but the overall Top 100 bestsellers. That's out of over 1 million ebooks sold on Amazon. And right now I'm #18. Wow...

Some days I have to pinch myself. It seems surreal.

I am very grateful to every reader who has taken a chance on one of my books. I do hope you'll enjoy reading my stories. I'm also thankful for all the wonderful people who have helped me spread the word about my books, especially those who have RTd my tweets, and especially my fellow authors at Imajin Books and World Literary Cafe. I owe some of my success to all of you.

And don't think I won't pass on what I've learned. I am just as excited that many of my authors at Imajin Books (my publishing company) will be seeing similar results very shortly as I share my tips and observations with them.

Happy reading everyone.

And if you haven't picked up a copy of the must-read thriller of 2012--CHILDREN OF THE FOG--check it out on Amazon.
