Enough copies sold in the first four days to get the book listed on the following Amazon Hot New Release Lists for a period of time:Astronomy New Releases (1)
Science & Math: Astonomy & Space Science: Kindle Edition: Last 30 Days (6)
Astrophysics & Space Science (3)
Poetry (14 Kindle, 16 Paperback, on the same list with Mary Oliver's new release, Ric Ocasek--forreal, and the latest edition of Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky)
Of course these numbers are based on sales rank, which change by the hour. Friday afternoon my rank was in the high 20 thousands and low 30s (pretty sweet). By Sunday, as the first marketing push waned, I was up in the high 90s.
"Don't obsess about rank," the marketers say. Just keep getting the word our there. Okay...but it's pretty facinating to watch sales. And seeing my book up on those lists was sorta SWEET!
