HUNTER: Now 300 Amazon Customer Reviews

 

The overwhelming reader response to HUNTER has been far, far beyond what I expected before I published it. When I pushed the “publish” button on Amazon on June 21, 2011, I entertained modest hopes that my novel would slowly find a decent audience over a period of several years.

Yet, improbably, this self-published thriller, written by a 60-something, first-time novelist, became — within six months — the #4 hottest-selling item on Kindle, the #1 Kindle title in “Mysteries & Thrillers,” the #2 Kindle “Romance,” and a Wall Street Journal “Top Ten Fiction Ebook.” Over 50,000 copies sold within a 35-day period. Total sales to date are approaching 70,000.

Today, July 21, 2012 — exactly one year and a month after publication — HUNTER reached another happy milestone: its 300th Amazon customer review. That review also constitutes its 227th “5-star” rave. The novel’s overall customer rating remains a very high 4.4 out of a possible 5.0.

I’ve said it before, but let me repeat once again just how grateful I am to you readers for your enthusiasm and encouragement. In fact, the biggest pressure I feel right now is to craft sequels that live up to your highest expectations. I’m at work on the first of those, titled BAD DEEDS. I hope to have it out by Christmas; but rest assured that I won’t release it until I’m satisfied that it’s the best that I can do. That’s what you deserve.

Thanks again for all your kind words and generous support. I appreciate it more than I can tell you.

    That’s brilliant! Particularly the high average reviews over so very many.

    It’s possible your next book will be even more popular – one just never knows.

      Thanks so much. I certainly hope BAD DEEDS will be as popular, or more so — but as you say: one just never knows.
