Thank you! Thank you!

Whew, what a day yesterday!

I am blown away by everyone's support for the release of my romance novel "The Amish Newcomer." SurvivalBlog kindly gave me a shout-out. Several readers said they promoted the book on their social media platforms. Even my dear sister-in-law dropped a note that she'd purchased a copy.

Though the book is available from multiple sources, I took screenshots of my Amazon ranking as the day went on as a sort of indicator. In the morning, the book ranked 169,346 in ALL books, #631 in the Amish Romance category, and #1160 in the Contemporary Christian Romance category.


By late afternoon, the numbers had changed dramatically: 9,378 in ALL books, #28 in the Amish Romance category, and #56 in the Contemporary Christian Romance category.


By evening, the numbers were even better: 6,500 in ALL books, #13 in the Amish Romance category, and #37 in the Contemporary Christian Romance category.


This morning, despite yesterday's "book bomb" being over, the numbers are still great: 6,451 in ALL books, #15 in the Amish Romance category, and #42 in the Contemporary Christian Romance category.


Folks, these rankings are all due to your support. You're the reason those numbers are so high. I am humbled and honored by your enthusiasm and encouragement.

It's hard to express the depth of my gratitude in a mere blog post, but I'll try. Thank you! Thank you!

  5. I live among the Amish and worked as a assistant to a midwife for the Amish. I do not read Amish books! I love your blog and went on amazon and read what was there. I like what I read and bought the book. Looking forward to reading the rest

    1. Since you have a unique insider view, I will be very interested in your opinion of the book! Please post a comment with your thoughts (no flattery, I'd love the plain unvarnished truth).

  6. I'm almost done with the book and am enjoying it immensely. I was skeptical, this being your first fiction, and me not being a huge lover of romance stories, but you've done wonderfully. I can't wait to see how it will end!

  9. We thank you for a good read. There are some that can spin a story and then there are those of us that can only read them. So I guess thank you for the thank you!

  11. I will see to ordering this book. Good job!

    Also, I wanna disgust you. Amazon is selling a book literally titled "In Defense of Looting". Read the reviews.p and have a laugh. I feel that too many trees were killed for this book. And I am not a green earther.
