Now #195,236…

I’m pretty sure I could drive myself crazy checking Amazon stats – but I couldn’t quite resist sharing this.  Some day I’d love to see ‘Farley Bend’ hit the Top 100 list…

Number 361,698…

Of how many?  I have no idea how many books are available for purchase from Amazon, and perhaps that’s just as well.  I was thrilled to see ‘Farley Bend’ on Amazon, so of course I go back from time to time and visit the page again.  Wow.  That’s MY book!

Today’s rank is in the 600,000 range, so it’s a good thing I haven’t quit my day job.  Though I must admit that as I ponder plot and characters for the next volume (Kate’s Story), I wish I had more time to spend in Farley Bend.

Second Proof

Who knew this whole publishing thing would be so complicated? Well, ok. I should have known it wouldn’t be a walk in the park, else it wouldn’t be special and a big occasion. The second proof looks much better than the first, even if I ignore all of the correction marks I wrote on Proof 1.

I’m feeling quite lucky today to have a talented artist friend Cathy who was not only willing to read an earlier draft but also sketched the cover art for ‘Farley Bend’. No other book cover is quite like it… though Volume II will likely have a similar feel.
