All summer at top 2%

It's the end of the month, and guess what? A Family Legacy: THE WATSON WORKS has spent the summer in the top 2% sales rank at Barnes and Noble.com. Have to say I'm really happy about that. Oh; and by the way, it's still FREE in multiple eBook formats at Smashwords, where it has been on the TOP TEN page for YA fiction downloads for SIX MONTHS.

A couple of other very positive stats: Playing the Baseball Card has continued to stay in the top 2% and Playing the 'Son' Card is keeping will above the 5% mark at Barnes and Noble.com

Happy reading, Wil

Truth vs. Fiction in Baseball

I just ran across a story on CNN about a 13-year-old little league pitcher and her incredible pitching of two perfect games. She is being recognized by the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, NY and has donated one of perfect-game jerseys.

My fiction version of a 13-year-old pitcher is detailed in the pages of Playing the Baseball Card. This eBook is has been holding a top 2% sales rank at B&N.com for more than a month now, but is still free at Smashwords. Earlier this month, I completed an author’s reading of the entire story (over a few days), and I’m just as happy with the story line today as when I wrote it. I think the audience liked it, too.

Happy reading,

Still top 2% at Barnes and Noble.com + other listings

Playing the Baseball Card is now my top book at BarnesandNoble.com, but Playing the 'Son' Card and A Family Legacy: THE WATSON WORKS are close behind, and all three have continued to stay in the TOP 2% of best sellers.

My books are also available at Apple's iBookstore, Sony books, Kobo, Smashwords, and now at Diesel eBooks. One of my books, Sons and Brothers in Seattle, is also available at Amazon.com and the others will soon join that title.

All in all, pretty good availability and not bad sales results, either. I am still working on sequels and new titles, so more titles will be added to my lists.

Happy reading,
