An Apple For Zoë Almost hits top 100 on Amazon!

Friday night was pins and needles to be sure! Those amazing folks over at ENT were very kind and gave me a PR love. The result after 8 hours An Apple For Zoe was ranked at #183 in the entire Amazon store!! I gasped OMG can I actually get into the top 100 (paid). Well that was as close as I got..but in the immortal words of Commander Cody from Hot Rod Lincoln...."Man, what a ride!"

I know some of you may be saying "almost" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. But when you're an indie author it does count to you. You can write the best book in the world and it doesn't matter one bit if it can't the right exposure or the breaks to get past the point of no return.

I even noticed at one point I was in 2nd place in Horror to Stephen King...The Kingster...really? Wow. Of course  I'm proving photos to prove I was there. Otherwise it didn't happen right?

So you can see on pic #1 I'm in the # 2 spot and in pic #2 I'm at #183 in the entire Amazon Store!!

Now For me, what I of course would love to happen is (yes get on the top 100 list) but just be able to sell enough books everyday to allow me to work freely as a writer.  If certain other Kindle authors have managed it, then why can't I? Why can't you?  Only circumstances get in our way and our own fears.
So thank you everyone who bought the book, tweeted me, liked me, and commented. All of this is because of your generosity!

Your friendly neighborhood writer man!
