So, day 1 as a free listing. The book spent a chunk the day in the #1 best seller position for short (= 30 minute) reads in Science Fiction and Fantasy. It’s also done well on the lists for Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, Cyberpunk, and (oddly to me) Literature and Fiction. This is very good. In particular, it makes it more likely that the algorithms will grab hold of it and keep it visible to more readers. I’m immensely thankful for all the signal boosts and thanks I’ve received.
The more that people respond to this book, the more comfortable I feel about suggesting it to new audiences. I hope to gain a foothold inside tech companies like Google, Apple, Microsoft, and so on. If you fall in this group, can you post a pointer to the company internal social network?
I’m still looking for reviews. On one hand, I’m surprised that a book can hit #1 like this without a huge slate of reviews. Are reviews becoming less important? Too heavily gamed? On the other hand, I’d really like to rack up some reviews. 🙂
Thanks, and stay tuned. More soon. List subscribers get first (and free) dibs.
