I'm A Best-Seller! Sort of

Recently the fine folks at Samhain Publishing pointed out to their authors and readers that they've installed catagories for their novels so people can find them more easily, just by typing in a specific about that book.  Interested in paranormal?  Type that in.  Like shape-shifters?  That too.  Contemporary?  Absolutely.  It's such an easy, streamlined website to use... and what's GREAT, is that it has a side benefit.

You can be first on a best-seller's list. :)

ZERO FACTOR, the action-packed romance novella that got chosen for Samhain's CYBERSHOCK cyberpunk anthology will be coming out this week (August 30th, whee!), but already pre-orders have put my debut project on the map.  Since it's listed under Anthologies, Science Fiction, Men In Uniform, Post-Apocalyptic and Cyberpunk, it's already sold enough to wind up on all these lists (at least for now).  Though I know it doesn't mean much, I have to admit this made me squee out loud.  You wanna squee with me?  Here we go!

Yay!  Though there aren't that many in this catagory. :P

Yay again! The AMAZING Nathalie Gray (Gridlock author) also did the covers.

*squints* It looks like I'm 9th on this one. Cool!

And I'm 7th here in Sci-Fi.  Woo!

Extreme close-up :)

So there ya go.  I'm having a dream come true, 'cause I'm on a best-seller's list!  At least for the next hour. =D


  1. Yay for you! Don't sell yourself short (no pun intended...) This is so deserved, and I'm sure you'll remain a best seller. At any rate, you'll always be on my top list! :D

  2. Oh, that's so cool! YAY for you!!!!!

  3. HAPPY DANCE !!! Congrats! You deserve it!!!

  4. WOW! That's fantastic, I'm so excited for you! And stop it with the 'Sort of' stuff. You've worked hard for this, just enjoy it :)

  5. Yay - well done!!! I just read about your launch over at Hart's and instantly grabbed your book onto my kindle for MAC - know what I'm doing this afternoon...

  6. @Cruella -- Whenever I hear a pun, intended or not, I want to offer up a "ba-da-bum". So I did , while sitting here alone in the computer room. Yes. I'm that weird. :D Thanks, sweetie!

    @Hart -- Hey, at this point in the game, I'm willing to make my own victories. :P

    @Evakins -- Hi sister! I do believe this calls for another celebration, yes? YES! :D

    @Christine -- hiya again! Pfft, you're as much a writer as I am, so you know very well this is more play than fun! ^_^ Thanks so much for your support, lady! *hugs*

    @Laura -- hi again! Oh gosh, now I'm NERVOUS! Thank you so much for giving this project a try, I had a lot of fun writing it. :) (And I gotta say, I really fell for Locke!)

    Thanks for the comments, everyone! :)

  7. I bought the book on impulse, read it immediately and now have been wandering around the internet telling other people to read it. Yay for you!

  8. @Kate -- *TACKLEHUGS* Sorry, but I couldn't help myself! Do you know that this might be the FIRST review that didn't come from my mom? Thank you so much, and I'm so glad you enjoyed ZERO FACTOR! *faints*
