In Good Company


Today I received a message from someone who had purchased my poetry book, Wind Rhymes. She informed me that my book was number 77 on the Amazon Canadian Poetry List. I found this oddly exciting and then was immediately saddened when my friend who checked the link said it wasn't there.

So I investigated and saw that I'd sold a few more copies bumping my book up to number ten so there is my little book sitting on the Amazon list surrounded by Leonard Cohen, Margaret Atwood and Anne Carson. What a dinner party!

Being silly and giddy and excited I quickly took a screenshot so that I could share it. I may never be in such good company again!

What a fun journey this is!

I used to be addicted to my books' Amazon (UK!!!) ranking. I have weaned myself off it slowly and now only allow myself to check them once in a while...because although it's exciting when they go high....it is probably a waste of life!!!!!

However, excitement is excitement!!!

Breeze said...

Oh I can see how it can be addicting! This is my first book so I'm psyched. Then I'm never checking again because it's bound to go down..lol

I'm more excited about sitting between Cohen and Atwood than the actual rating!

Breeze, I think it is all so exciting. I hope your book just climbs and climbs and tops all charts.

Congratulations...on both the book and where you have got to sit. Will you chat to Leonard or Margaret first?

Molly Potter said...

Oh and what will you ask them?
I'd start with favourite colour as a warm up and then ...

if you received an email in your in box that you knew outlined the rest of your life 1) would you look at it and 2) what would you like it to say?

and then

How is you existentialist angst these days?
