oh, and as an aside, all those "deleted scenes" make great extras for the back of "special editions" of the book, or as teasers and extras on blogs etc ;-)

Don't worry, you're not the only one. While I still sell pretty well, I've been steadily declining since I peaked in November of 2011, even with the release of a 3rd book. No particular reason, btw. Good reviews, etc. I was obsessed with checking reports then - not so much now. I keep fearing I'll drop into obscurity - which I guess should be a push to keep writing and definitely to start a different series.

It is summer though, so try not to worry about it too much. Hopefully things will pick up again in September like they did last yer..

That's one of my favorite poems. Of course, it's a classic. Thanks for bringing it back into my conscious state. "Good fences" and all that. Cheers.

I can't imagine that kind of a thrill....1000 a day for one book. Egads, that is so impressive.

BTW, I read the preview for you new book - really liked it. Very engaging. I am still waiting for that Kindle, but I am tempted to go ahead and get the book, and read it on my ipod.

Did you get your chapters rewritten? I've done that with a few pages before - beyond frustrating.

Thanks. I just need to allow myself to enjoy those days that rock - and not keep looking for someone to shut off the faucet.

I have read both BIG LAKE and BIG LAKE LYNCHING. Do yourself a favor and buy them and read them. You will be glad you did. They are both absolutely terrific books.

How much did Mike's endorsement cost you, and is he available for hire?

My wife concurs with me. She loved both of Nick's books and is patiently waiting for the 3rd in his series.

I can't believe you're complaining. I'd die to have 50 sales a day. How's that even bad??????? It's fantastic!
