Wanna piece of me, Kathie Lee?
My book has only been out for 9 days, and it appears to be like those movies that go straight to DVD. It's hardly in any Barnes & Nobles, and not in any Borders. So I sent out an email this afternoon to 150 people, imploring them to buy it, and it catapulted it up to #34,307 on Amazon. Hey, spam works.
So I said to Jennifer, "I hate to do this to myself, but I want to see how that compares to Kathie Lee Gifford's children's book."
I saw it at B&N a couple of days ago and was annoyed that hers was out on the table and mine was tucked up on the Authors A-Z shelf, spine out, where no one could see it. So I put one of my books over hers just to protest the unfairness of the universe.
I just looked hers up on Amazon, and it's #38,660.
Ka-BOOM, baby, and the lights go out!
This may be the high point for me, which is sad, but I'm declaring victory.
