A Study in Red is my Publisher's Best Seller!

I've just received notification from Double Dragon Publishing that lists their Top Twenty Best Sellers for the first 2 quarters of 2009 and I'm over the moon to see that 'A Study in Red' has topped the list for both quarters! Thanks to everyone who has bought the book and made it the success it has become. I really can't say much more except that I'm both surprised and delighted at the news.

Best regards
