It is March 1st, and I am proud to report that during Vessel's first month of publication, it passed the 100 copies mark. And it was February of all months--the shortest month of the year! It's like my kid won the spelling bee or something. It feels great.
I want to sit still for a second and savor the present, but I can't. I can't even wrap my head around it. A hundred people. Out there. Reading this thing. If you are one of those people: THANK YOU. I hope you are having a great time with the story and characters that I have so enjoyed constructing. And if you've taken the time to carry us forward---by suggesting Vessel to someone, or writing a quick Amazon or GoodReads review, by Tweeting or blogging or getting an extra copy for a friend, by recommending it to your local bookstore---then know that you have produced real results. I am doing this marketing thing on my own, but I am not doing it alone. One hundred copies doesn't happen because of one person. Thank you. Let's keep this thing rolling. Let's dance.
