For the first time ever I am getting sales of a book on consecutive days. I have done next to no promotion for Alien Summer but it is selling in America. It's very cool to see a graph that is not hitting zero. In the meantime I have mounted an attack on my local bookstore. I took a copy in. The o... Read more of this blog post »
