The roller coaster of Launch Day.

In Uncategorized on February 29, 2012 at 3:46 am

It’s been a wild day – and WOW… We hit a few Amazon lists… It’s amazing what a few hours we had! So, at some point during the day we landed in these rankings:

  • #1 on the Hot New Releases in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery and Horror
  • #424 in Books  (over all – that’s out of the 4 million titles on Amazon available today.)
  • #3  in Books > 4-for-3 Books > Children’s Books > Literature > Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery & Horror > Science Fiction, Fantasy, & Magic
  •  Flat out #15 in all regular children’s books (Theresa wrote to me and said she saw that! I couldn’t find it as the hour had passed, but hawt digitydamn!)
  • #33 in Books > Children’s Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy & Magic

I’m stoked. This is a great thing. Best of all – I got to call Kevin and say, “Guess what? We’re on the bestseller list.” The puzzled stunned-ness on the phone was just a bonus. He called back later to ask what it all meant. To be fair, I wasn’t sure what it all meant either. SO, after watching ALL day and recording the best numbers as well as I could, I have found an interesting article on What Amazon Sales Rankings Mean.

This proves what most of us writers have known all along – most of us can’t give up our day jobs. But, after a wonderful day like today, I can’t complain. Not at all.

Thanks to everyone who bought a book, changed their Facebook photo to the duck, those who tweeted, retweeted and reviewed. Awesome. Just – wow!
