I am gob smacked!
It's taken me a week to be able to sit down and write this blog post, mostly because I still can't believe it is real. Someone, pinch me! Every author dreams of being able to add "Best Selling" to their credentials, and sadly, there are those who never do. But that isn't my fate. Nope. Not me. I don't mean to brag, but I'm thrilled to announce The Veritas Codex hit #1 on several of Amazon's best seller lists, it made it to #104 out of all the books on Kindle and #1 on Amazon's Movers & Shakers list.
So, how did it happen? Well, my publisher is a genius. After all the hard work to get 50 reviews on Amazon, which I accomplished, he was able to get me a featured ad on BookBub. Emails went out to five different countries helping readers find my book, which was conveniently discounted to 99 cents for the eBook. My tribe is out there, and they responded in droves.
Book sales shot through the roof and new reviews are coming in every day. We're up to 70 reviews as of this writing (with a 4.6 out of 5-star average), which is encouraging. It's nice to know that this little book I wrote for practice, and never expected anyone would ever read, is doing pretty good out there in the world. It's like sending your kid off to college and watching them excel. It's a beautiful feeling. #BookMom
On top of that, our holiday anthology, Christmas Tapestry: A Collection of Holiday Tales, featuring The Veritas Codex team in "The Krampus Conspiracy" has been a success. It's still on sale for $2.99 on Kindle if anyone likes a nice mix of paranormal adventure, fantasy, military drama, legal thrillers and horror. Just what everyone wants for the holidays, right?
