Another first for me: one of my books (Hannibal) has remained in the Top Ten bestsellers list for a second week. It has dropped to No. 8, despite selling nearly 1,000 more copies than last week, which means that it was even harder to stay in the chart this week than last. I’m stoked! Because I’m within 15 words of my daily word count, I cracked open a beer at the rather early hour of 5.30 p.m. I can feel several more coming on too. Thanks so much to everyone who’s parted with their hard earned cash to buy a copy of Hannibal. Onwards and upwards. To infinity and beyond!
Now I’m going to get stuck back into Devil’s Charge, the excellent new novel from the amazing Michael Arnold. It’s an English civil war book, the 2nd in a series featuring the rakish Captain Stryker (think a meaner officer than Sharpe). It’s out in August, and I recommend it as an excellent read. If you click on the link, be sure to watch the book trailer – it’s very good.
