Thank You Everyone! We're #1 !

 

     It is with great pleasure that I announce that Edges of Science is the #1 top seller in its category (unexplained mysteries) on Amazon.com. On the first day it was available on Kindle, Edges of Science shot to the top of the sales totals! This happened because all of you good people out there made the effort to order the Kindle version of the book on its first day of release.  Thank you everyone who bought a Kindle version that, if you are like me, you may not ever read.  Personally, I infinitely prefer to turn the pages on an old fashioned book, but Kindle is an undeniably handy way to store and read books for those who do not mind reading on a screen. 
     Of course, credit goes to Guy Edwards for conceiving the release day campaign.  If anyone who is reading this ever decides to publish a book, Guy Edwards is the person you want on your team.  Guy designed the cover and what a job he did!  When you go to the Amazon page that shows the top sellers (by clicking on this link), you will see how the clean, crisp, bold lines of Edges of Science absolutely overpower the other book covers that are displayed on the same screen.  And if that's not enough,  Guy Edwards conceived the successful release-day campaign and is making a companion website (which will be finished later this week).  Folks, I can say it strongly enough: Guy Edwards of BrainjarMedia.com is the one to hire to make your literary or electronic media project successful. Guy is a genius.  There's no other word for it. 
A example of Alicia's keen and humorous art.

     While we are at it, it also must be said that there are seventeen original pieces of artwork that adorn the pages of this book, all drawn by the highly talented hand of Alicia Bateman.  Molly Hart Lebherz was the keen-eyed copy editor who combed over the text to make it compelling, fluid, and error-free. Jack Powell did a final scan and fixed the few remaining issues that were created by my scatter-brained writing style. The whole team at Willamette City Press, but especially Sharon Beelart, formatted the book and saw it through to publication. Thank you, thank you to Guy, Alicia, Molly Sharon, and Jack.
And thank you again to everyone who participated in the release-day campaign by spending two bucks on Kindle.  You helped earn this book the recognition that will make it much more widely noticed and read. I truly hope you enjoy reading it and I wholeheartedly invite you to post a review on Amazon.com, no matter what you think of the book.
