Okay, I admit it (and I’m probably going to damn myself to obliteration by saying it) but I’m beginning to get cautiously optimistic that The End Of All Worlds is starting to move forward on its own in sales. It’s probably bad to do this (but I’m sure all author’s do it) but I’ve got myself into a routine of starting the day by logging on to Amazon and checking my rankings and my sales reports. This morning, I notice that I’ve shot back up overnight:

Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #11,654 Paid in Kindle Store
#49 in Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Fairy Tales
#76 in Books > Fiction > Myths & Fairy Tales

Heading over to the reports I can see I’ve sold two more copies overnight, and I’m fairly sure that these are to people I don’t know.

I’m also pretty stoked by an email I had last night from a reviewer I sent my book to. I’ve not seen the review yet, but I’m told its coming soon. In the email they said that they ‘loved it. It was a fantastic read, and you’re a very wonderful writer. If you get any other books ready, send them my way, I’d love to do more reviews for you. Also if you’re interested, I’d love to do an author interview with you when you have time’. I can’t help it but be pretty high and chipper that my little story might be starting to go places.
