Since our book came out– a little over a month ago– I’ve been obsessed with checking our Amazon rankings. We started in the six digits: #999,999 out of all the books or something like that. Big numbers. It was a little daunting. Gradually, and maybe due solely to the purchasing power of our friends and relatives, the book improved in numbers. Five digits. Lower five digits. I began checking these numbers every time I opened my computer– reloading the Amazon tab.
Then another rank was added to our Amazon ranking: #99 in Humor!
Tina Fey was number one. I texted Sophia: “We’re #99 in Humor on Amazon!”
“Out of how many?”
I just reloaded the page a few minutes ago.
First of all, Engineering? What?
Second of all, eleven away from Tina Fey.
I’m glowing in the light of my Amazon screen.
Sophia and I have been feeling very grateful. The book has been getting RAVE reviews and we’re thrilled!
Our wonderful editor with his Tacos for Dinner painting!
This is a painting for our editor, Bruce, as a token of our gratitude– and to decorate his barren office.
And we’re doing another give-away on Tumblr– a thank you to the blogging platform that gave us our start! Click here for more info!
So yea, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
