    You'd better keep sharing great milestones like these! I agree that they are probably short-lived until we all get terribly, horrifically rich, but until then little things like this mean a lot! Thanks for sharing, TK!

    T, don't feel bad about being happy about making sales knowing they'll tail off soon. I rode this wave and I'll tell you, were it not for the "ooooh, another sale!" moments to cheer me up, I'd have lost my marbles. Being better than Stephen King? Seriously, if I'd been better than the guy who wrote "How I Got Rich Selling Bodily Fluids", I'd have been over the moon!

    And yeah, I got a beatdown from a guy who was telling folks how to sell bodily fluids. Stephen King? if I did one damned thing involving writing that put me a notch higher, I'd frame the picture to hang on my wall. Then I'd take a copy and have it enlarged to 1000-feet square, and I'd have it pasted into my yard so you could see it from space on Google Maps. Then I'd by a Ham radio and tell martians to check it out. The future is a mystery, but this group produced a work that outsold one of the finest modern writers I can think of for one day.

    I look at life like a football game. Sometimes you hit the great Hail Mary pass for the six-point touchdown, and then hit the conversion for an extra two, that's awesome. Sometimes, you make it to mid-field and can't go any farther so it's a field goal for three points.

    In this football game of book sales, I'd be thrilled to have three points. I was knocked down in the opposing endzone for a two point safety for the other team. I'd have given away my bodily fluids for three points! (I do think it's cheating, him selling his bodily fluids, I've been trying to give some of mine away for years. Sellin'? That's just showin' off.)

    Think of how many writers haven't topped anybody, and be very glad you've topped a major somebody.

    That's awesome!

    Why in the world is Bag of Bones listed under anthologies, though? It's a novel.

    Well done folks. Always good to see our guys and girls getting the good writing out.

    Sweeeet! Thanks for the link, T.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    That is some great news, and great work, T! I know getting reviewed on these sites takes some work--well done, and thank you!
