'Small Town News' shipment arrives
I received a shipment of copies of "Small Town News" for the book signing Tuesday night at the Mary K. Finley Library in Lamar. I have had several people e-mailing me that they will be bringing copies they have already purchased by the library, so it promises to be a great evening.
I am scheduled to be there from 5 to 7 p.m.
Apparently, two or three people must have bought the novel through Barnes & Noble over the past week or so since it has jumped in the rankings from 449,000 to 109,000. It has been languishing at about 1,100,000 on Amazon.com after topping out at 43,000 a few weeks back. For some reason, "Small Town News" was ranked briefly at number 12 among young adult books in France, according to the Amazon ratings. That one boggles the mind.
