On Writing & Storytelling, or: Well, Someone Bought a Copy of My Book on Amazon….

My novella, Reunion: A Story, usually ranks in the 1M range in Amazon’s Best-Selling Books list, which, of course, means that few copies are being purchased. The one time that it was ranked anywhere close to the Top 100 (or even Top 1000) best-selling titles was in July of 2018 when I rolled out the first edition. (Earlier this year, I made quite a few revisions to the text and improved the page design, and added a new cover, so now that edition has been supplanted by the second edition.)

Today, it’s doing a bit better; as of this morning, it’s currently ranked at #619,374. I see that as a positive development…so if you bought a copy because you believe in my abilities to entertain you with my writing, thank you.
