Kindle Power

I’ve posted before on my possibly indecent affection for the Kindle. Now that my debut novel is out, I love it for a whole new reason: sumbitch sells some books.

Okay, MOB RULES isn’t a romance — I’ve noticed a couple DNFs from paranormal romance readers at Goodreads* — but lots of readers who enjoy romances will also enjoy MOB RULES. Even if they remain unconvinced with the romantic shenanigans. Actually, that’s a pretty healthy attitude, as I’ve noted before.

There’s really no telling what this rank translates to in terms of sales. NovelRank estimates it at 69 Kindle books so far this month, fourteen of them coming today, but I’ve heard the estimates are unreliable–on the low side. Whatever, it’s a nice amount of books, considering we’re told digital books make up less than 10% of sales.

Maybe you’re one of those 14+ readers who picked up the Kindle book today. If so, thank you. Just remember what I said about the “romance” bit. And, for that matter, if you’re one of the people who picked up HARVEST MOON because it’s a bestseller in a couple “Children’s Book” sub-categories…sorry about the f-bombs and murders.
