Kindle Metrics

Forgive me while I crow for just a moment: Mr. Penumbra just hit what I think is a new peak in the Kindle store. It’s the 937th bestselling item in the entire Kindle universe. The fourth-bestselling short story. The third-bestselling “techno thriller.”

The sad truth: As best I can figure, that rank was driven by about 30 copies over the past two days.

Alas, Kindle. Your universe is small indeed.

That's awesome news! After all, the Kindle demographic is exactly the tech/lit nerd you're after, right? (Initially?).

You may have inspired me to return to writing fiction, Robin... I just need to figure out if I was ever any good at it, or if I just like the idea of 'being a writer'.
