Celebrating 1,000 books sold on Amazon Kindle!

Six months ago I self-published my thriller, "Crack-Up," on Kindle and--with virtually no efforts at marketing and not a penny spent--passed 1,000 in units sold yesterday. At my price point of $1.99 the book is consistently in the top five or ten in rank among all independently published novels in the mystery/suspense category.

So the experiment is a success in my eyes. It's been fun to track the sales and to hear from readers through reviews.

Oh, and I was recently contacted out of the blue by a Hollywood management and production company inquiring about the TV/Film rights to the novel. Not sure anything will come of it, but it's nice to be noticed and an excuse to dream ...

For the curious, here's a link to the book:

Thanks, Ingrid. I went straight to Amazon. The novel's available at Smashwords as of recently and in the queue to be available shortly, via Smashwords, for the B&N and Sony readers and for Kobo (formerly Shortcovers).

Fantastic! Congratulations, Eric. There's hope for others in this story. Did you go directly to Amazon or use Smashwords?
