Amorous Woman in the Stratosphere!

Well, this is all momentary and relatively speaking of course, but I just had to share the good news. Now, I don't check my Amazon numbers all that often--only to keep tabs on the efficacy or lack thereof of certain marketing strategies--but I just got my October issue of Scarlet, the glossy, sexy UK magazine that ran my story "Love Hotel Hill" last month. This issue is even more of a thrill for me, because Amorous Woman is the featured novel in their "Juicy Bits" section. The excerpt is indeed one of the juicier ones, if I do say so myself, and I just happened to check my Amazon UK numbers as a sort of market research. Now, I know this is only a temporary flight into the heady heights of thin five-digit Amazon air, but please indulge my celebration of my brief ascent in my hot air balloon. I actually made the rankings in some categories!!! Here's the stats, m'am:

As expected the numbers fell later in the same day, but why not enjoy those special moments...and I literally mean "moments" :-)!
