For those of you who don't know, Amazon runs a program called 'Kindle All-Stars', as a kind of incentive for authors to enroll in the Select program and sell their work exclusively through Amazon. Essentially, they take 2 groups: 1. Top 100 Kindle exclusive authors by sales volume 2. Top 100 Kindle exclusive books by sales volume
I found out yesterday that Starship Eternal somehow snuck its way into the bottom of the second group, finishing January as one of the 100 most downloaded Kindle exclusive novels (out of over 700,000) and earning me a $500 bonus.
As a result, the book has a nice new shiny added to its detail page:
How many books is that? Over 6,000 in the U.S.
What's more, it might make the list again for February. I've already had over 7,000 sales/borrows, and there are still 9 more days in the month (maybe enough time to get to 8,000?).
I'm shocked and awed by reader response to the book. If you're one of the people who bought/borrowed it, thank you so much for being AWESOME!
If you haven't bought it, why not find out what you're missing ;) ? http://amzn.to/1DFkfHr
