The Wise Novelist

Friday Victory Lap – Thanks For Your Support

I mentioned in the past how your books’ rank on Amazon is always fleeting. So, you must grab that moment of winning every chance you get. Friday is always especially magical for me. Has been for as long as I can remember. Every once in a while the Universe reminds me of that. Today was one of those reminders.

I am the luckiest guy in the world. Thank you my fine, five readers for getting the word out.

I am thrilled to appear on the Top Hundred List under any genre. If you do it as a singer, and land on one of Billboard’s Lists, it usually means you have made it.

But landing all three of The Claire Trilogy in the top 10 never ceases to amaze me.

I remember worrying if the books that followed TWA, would get there. Held my breath each time. Lit a lot of candles. Said a lot of prayers.

Weird thing was I wasn’t worried about me. Truth is, for most of the readers, I only exist through my books. And that is how it should be. I was worried about my characters, especially the new ones that appear for the first time in the later books. I wanted them to be loved by my readers the same way Claire and Jimmy and Gina and Lenny and Helen and Bobbi and Eddie were loved in TWA.

Because for me, these characters are real. They have real feelings. I care deeply about them all. I laugh with them and cry for them.

I will pray that same affection will be shown for all of the new characters that appear in Finding Jimmy Moran.

So, thank you again, all of you fine, five readers, that have supported my literary journey.

I remain forever in your collective debt.

Okay, now I have to return to reality.

But it is Friday, so I can face this dawn with a smile.

I recommend you fine, five readers do the same.

The weekend beckons.

But first a kitty cuddle, my rounds and some torture.

Today is going to be a great one.
