JABBERWOCKY is exploding!

Before I went to bed last night I checked the sales data for my novella, JABBERWOCKY, and saw that it had sold 13 copies in June.  Not too bad considering I've been giving it away free on Smashwords.com for most of the month. 

This morning when I logged in I thought I was in the wrong account.  It listed my book at 935 sales for the month.  I double checked the login  and sure enough, the sales data was for JABBERWOCKY. 

Here's some raw numbers for number nerds like myself:

at 7:30  I had 'sold' 935 and sat at #111 on the Free Kindle List

at 9:00 it was up to 1431 and had moved up to #93  (that's 5.5 books per minute)

by 9:10, at 1501 'sales' it was up to #52 on the Free Kindle Book List, and #3 overall Epic Fantasy

It climbed through the day, and is still climbing, but the latest numbers show the following:

at 4:50 3700 'sales', it is number #12 on the Free Kindle Book List and #2 overall Epic Fantasy.

With all due respect to Mr. Carroll, JABBERWOCKY is currently ranked above Alice's Adventures in Wonderland on Kindle's Free List.
Here's hoping it climbs to the top 10 overall, and #1 Epic Fantasy!

Wow, that's really cool. I'm following your blog after a friend of yours #FF on Twitter.

Your book looks great, in depth would be a better word, and that is exactly what I need to read right now. As soon as I get my head out of the writing cloud I'll be buying a copy.

I wish you the best of luck.

A.M. and Aimee - thanks for stopping by and for the awesome comments. It has been an amazing ride! Earlier today Jabberwocky was #1 on one of Amazon's lists and Alice in Wonderland was #2. I took a screenshot and plan to frame it =) They switched places 15 minutes later, but it was fun while it lasted!

How many downloads is it at now? -Nathan

It's up to 20,500 with around 100 downloads every day. I'm waiting for it to go free on the UK Amazon site then I'll raise the price to $.99 again.
