Stealing Jake has been #1 out of over 15,000 free books in the Kindle Store for 4 days now!
At first I was thrilled, but not wowed, or stunned because the book was FREE, for goodness sake. Of course it would tumble up the Amazon ranks.
Everybody knows that!
Then, for the fun of it, I actually scrolled through the list of the top 100 Amazon Bestsellers in Kindle Store, and got a little light-headed in the process.
There are some amazing novels and games on that list, including my fellow Digital First authors, Diana Prusik, Lynne Gentry, Michael Berrier, and Russ Masterson.
I mean, at the typing of this, Pride and Prejudice was #27 with 1,206 reviews!!!
Stealing Jake is a new kid on the block with 20...wait, 21 reviews to its credit. And such wonderful, sweet reviews they are. Some of them bring tears to my eyes.
How did this happen?
Amazon's Top 100 Bestsellers in Kindle Store is a mixture of new releases, games, Classics, fiction, and non-fiction. In fiction, there are inspirationals, romance, suspense, westerns, Sci-fi, paranormals. The list goes on and on.
After I studied that list, I realized the complete and utter miracle that shot Stealing Jake to #1.
I see it, but I don't believe it, and I don't know that I'll ever understand how it happened.
But it did happen.
It is happening.
Ain't God good?
