Coincidence? I think not!

HRH Queen Elizabeth made a historic visit to Dublin yesterday wearing this colorful and expressive outfit. At the same time, 3/17 became an Amazon.com bestseller. Could the queen be a fan of Slí na Firinne, the traditional Irish band in 3/17? Or, was she going to make a quick stop across the pond for a “10 months until St. Patrick’s Day bash” at Paulie’s Italian Palazzo?

YOU be the judge! Coincidence? I think not…!

(P.S. Thank you, Eddie 🙂

3/17…a bestseller!

Amazon Top 100 Bestseller!

What a day!

This morning 3/17 was mentioned on Kindle Review, and suddenly sales took off! By this afternoon, the book made it onto Amazon.com’s Top 100 Bestsellers list! Even had some UK sales, too!

This means it was competing with the likes of Tina Fey, Steve Martin and Nora Ephron on the bestseller list. My idols!

So from now on, 3/17 can be referred to as an Amazon Bestseller! Tá sé go hiontach!

BTW, the Kindle price of 3/17 rises to $2.99 on June 1. Get your copy now!

March Madness begins!!

For a limited time, you can now buy the Kindle version of 3/17 for just 99 cents! The format works on the iPad, iPhone, Android & BlackBerry, too.

A whole new world…

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of the publishing industry being turned on its head and the coins falling out of its pants pockets.
     A fellow author told me I should join the Kindleboards community, now that 3/17 is available in that format. I’ve been on there a week and learned so much already about how ePublishing and self-publishing are changing the book game forever.
     Authors used to be content to write in drafty garrets, separated from the rest of the world. Not so, anymore! Now we must write, design, edit, market, be social media literate and fret about book sale rating fluctuations. That’s cut out a whole lotta middlemen in the publishing industry. If I were them, I’d start taking a few courses to prepare myself for a new career.
     All of this is happening crazy-fast. And if you want to join the game, you better be adaptable. You wonder, after digital books, what could be next? [Cue: theme song from 2001: a Space Odyssey]

Just in time for the ‘high holy days’…
