After a month since publication, I wanted to provide a quick update on how Missionville is doing.
All sales are through Amazon, whether its for the paperback or kindle version.
In total, more than 155 copies of Missionville have been sold, three quarters of those sales are for the paperback.
The majority of sales have come through amazon.com (the US market), but a few have come from .co.uk (where I now live) and .ca (Canada, where I worked at Woodbine for two years).
So far, the book has received thirteen 5 star reviews. Eight of these reviews are on the .com site, three are on the .co.uk site, and two are on the .ca site.
I am very excited about the reviews, which include:
“It’s hard not to get attached to the characters and cheer for them to find the right paths.”
“I could not put it down.”
“Fans of Dick Francis will appreciate his attention to detail that adds so much to the story of a low-level racetrack and the good/evil stories that play out there on a daily basis.”
“It’s hard-hitting, controversial, and makes one think.”
“The characters are so real that you immediately get caught up in their lives.”
For a glance at the book, here is an excerpt: Missionville, Chapter 4
