The Storm’s Own Son Reaches New Heights!

Today has been a banner day for The Storm’s Own Son: Book One! Here is a world tour of Amazon Kindle rankings from various markets. Each was reached at some point today. All numbers are rated out of the total of some 2.5 million eBooks, with # 1 being the top selling book, and # 2,500,000 (approximately) being the lowest selling.

USA / Main Site: # 2,642
Canada: # 4,138
UK: # 1,520
Germany: # 3,921
India: # 948
Australia: # 773

Reviews have been great, with the majority of the mentioning they plan to read book two. I’m also seeing an increase in the sales of my older books, which is timing exactly with the success of the Storm’s Own Son, and can only mean at least some of its readers are going looking for more of my work. These are exciting times!
