I am so excited! It's been a great week. First I got a Publishers Weekly review which says "Wacky and far-reaching, this work reveals fiery intellect." and now The Faithful has made it to #17 on the Amazon Bestsellers list in Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, Paranormal & Psychics! Yahoo!!!

Getting reviews is super-duper huge for any author, but especially important to authors published on Amazon. Amazon has some system I honestly haven't figured out -- probably because it has something to do with math (shudders in horror). But what I have learned is that Amazon starts promoting authors when they reach a certain amount of reviews, and the more reviews they get, the more they get promoted.
So please, everyone, keep this in mind when you buy a book (or anything!) on Amazon. If you like a product, review it. Even if you think you can't say anything that hasn't already been said, it's all about the numbers. So every review really helps! For those of you reading The Faithful, please consider leaving a review. It doesn't have to be paragraphs long, or super eloquent ... just honest.
Here's the link to my book on Amazon.
I just found out The Faithful made it through to the Quarter-Finals in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award's Mystery/Thriller category. That means it's in the top 500 (from the original 10,000 entries), and in the top 100 for the Mystery/Thriller category.
Even better, my awesomesauce author buddy J.D. Faulkner made it through to the Quarter-Finals in the Sci-Fi category. So excited for her!
The next step: Publisher's Weekly will read and review the whole manuscript. So, ok. Now we wait!
