    I think it's not a mystery, pirate. It's just as you described. For one, if you improve your ranking, somebody is gonna wonder why are you ranked as such, and will eventually buy. This works for books cause they're not shareware, they're commonly payware with the exception of a promotion like this one. If you hop into sites like free-ebooks.net, you're gonna find a lot of c.r.a.p. and you won't wonder why they're not even considered in online book stores. Or perhaps those authors didn't pull the muscle to place their books into any online book store, so as good as they could be, nobody is ever gonna notice. And as simple as you say that it is to put something at Amazon, well you did and they did not.

    Congrats on your recent success :)

    Just thought I'd pop in and mention that the sequel to Hard Case is at the copy editor, aiming for December release.

    Okay, done my part to keep this thread from being locked too soon. ;-D

    Just wondering, but did you give "Hook's Books" consideration?

    To me, it's about the stories, not the books. ;-) Also, rhyming is too cute. I have my image to maintain. Arrrrrr! ;-D
