The following data comes from my "engineer/obsessive compulsive/marketing fixated" (but lovely) wife. Now that the books are shipping she started to watch the Amazon lists.

Here is a video that seems pertinent. I'm not saying this relates to the best seller lists you are on ... but please don't look in the cabinet in the spare bathroom.

Love in the Time of Amazon

Jim (jimmaclachlan) I just got a very cool promotional email from Amazon on Michael's books. Typically, I get a 'best of' hodge podge with a dozen authors listed. This time, I just got one with only Michael's books in it. Congrats.

That is really cool! (I'm jealous. Didn't get it! LOL)

Carlissa | 16 comments I didn't realize that Theft of Swords had already come out until I saw several copies at Barnes & Noble today! They looked very nice sitting on the store shelf!
