Yesterday I happened to peek at the ranking for The Silence of Trees on Amazon, and I saw that it had jumped up to the top 40 in Historical Fiction for Kindle!
By midnight tonight, these were the rankings:
- #19 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Historical
- #34 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Historical
- #41 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Literary Fiction
How exciting to be in the top 20 Kindle Bestsellers in Historical Fiction! For small presses and “new” authors, one of our greatest challenges is getting attention. Luckily the internet and e-books have helped!
Thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy The Silence of Trees, and many thanks to those who have reviewed it on Amazon, Goodreads, and spread the word on blogs, facebook, and twitter.
A special thank you to those of you who have ordered it for your local libraries. This makes me especially happy! Anyone can request a copy for their branch. It doesn’t cost you anything, and it helps the book to read an even wider audience.
Every little bit helps, and I am so grateful!
