A few days ago, my friend Malika Gandhi ( author of Freedom of the monsoon) bought a copy of Chronicle of Mark Johnson. The immediate effect was the book shot to number 50 in the Amazon.co.uk Horror anthology section for a few hours. I didn't expect a lot more from this jump, sales have only been minimal, the only other sale being to my friend Paula Shene ( author of Mandy-the alpha dog).
However, on a daily basis I check the ratings. Usually just to see how the books are falling, today I got a huge shock- Chronicles had jumped to 145,000 from 880,000+ on Amazon.com, whether an after-effect of the top 50 showing or just general views is hard to tell.
