IN STOCK! and cruising up the charts!

Yesterday I had volunteered to work a security shift in the morning, and then a traffic/parking control shift in the evening for the Oquirrh Mountain Temple openhouse.  (estimated 24,000 visitors yesterday) So I woke up this morning, sun-burned, dehydrated, tired, head-achey, and just all around grumpy, until I went onto Amazon and saw this:

In Stock.

And then I saw this: Sales Rank: #1,692 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)

Popular in these categories: (What’s this?)

#55 in  Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Epic
#86 in  Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Contemporary
#94 in  Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction

And then I went and checked my e-mails and blog posts. MHI is now on every shelf, everywhere. People are reading my book!  Reviews (99% good) are going up.  I’m stoked.

    Top of the world Ma! Looking forward to reading it, after Amazon gets it to me. If the rest of the book compares to the first 7 chapters I read on line…damn,

    Just picked up my copy tonight at the Lees Summit (KC Metro) Borders. Was hooked on it as soon as I read the seven sample chapters Baen had on its website.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to read the rest…

    Barnes & Noble at Pembroke Pines in South Florida had the books in the back room on Sunday. Clerk was politely asked to retrieve at least one. According to the B&N site all N W Dade/ SW Broward B&Ns have MHI in stock.

    It was at the Books-A-Million in Knoxville as of Saturday. The other shops around here run a bit behind that one, so it should be showing up this week across the board.

    Hi, Larry. In stock at Books-a-Million in Alexandria, LA this weekend [yes, I bought another copy! :-) ] I also put up another review on my blog: see .

    I’ll try to put up an online review at Amazon sometime this week.

    I picked up two on Sunday. One for me, and one as a giveaway on a knife forum I like.

    I like the blurbs by bloggers. Makes me wonder when the Lawdog book is coming out. =)

  12. Wes S. says:

    …An update: Started reading MHI at about 8:30PM last night, figuring I’d read for a couple of hours and then go to bed…and finished it about four o’clock this morning. I literally couldn’t put it down…

    Lots of fun. Enjoyed it hugely. Good thing I’ve got the week off from work…*yawn*…

    I’ve got a review up here. I’m really looking forward to the sequel.
