Well, yesterday I got my first really scathing review of Oasis on Amazon. 1 star. My favorite part of the review says:
This book is like a $0.69 cent bean burrito from Taco Bell. It will dull your hunger for zombie brain bashing if you’re really in a fix, but it will not satisfy.
Oh, well. There’s no accounting for taste. If Stephen King can be a self-proclaimed literary Big Mac, I guess I should be proud to be a burrito. Oddly enough, the review didn’t even dampen my spirits much. I know my book isn’t a 1. It may not be a 5 either (btw, thanks for the two of you that did give me a 5 â€“ you guys are awesome), but it’s definitely not a 1.
Anyway, my book was ranked
yesterday at #62,167 today at #49,655, the highest I’ve seen so far. While that may sound at first like a totally crappy rank, consider the fact that Amazon has like 10,000,000 books. Even if there are only 2 million, that puts me ahead of 97% of the other listed books.
So thanks everybody for all your support!
Oh, yeah, and I still think I’ll be able to get chapter two of The Journey Of St. Laurent up tomorrow.
