This glory may be fleeting but I’m going to savor the moment. At this writing, Secretariat’s Meadow is ranked #1 in several categories on Amazon: bestseller overall in Horses and Horse Racing books and bestseller in new releases for Horses and Horse Racing books. Not a bad way to kick off our Barnstorming Book Tour!
Once I learned to navigate all the categories and sub-categories on Amazon, I made several happy discoveries. Secretariat’s Meadow was also #1 Most Wished For Book and Most Gifted Book in those categories. Those hourly rankings have since changed, but hey – it was great while it lasted! At this hour, the book is #3 in new releases in Individual Sports and #15 in overall Sports.
Discovering all these categories has only intensified my compulsive need to check the rankings several times a day. Yes, this sounds like giddy new author syndrome. But while this is my fifth book, it is the first one with a national audience. That’s a whole new horse race!
I’m just happy to be on this ride!
