There are times when you just can't help it. Weeks, months, years of slog and not much to show for it, then quite by chance, it's as if Fate finally notices you need a bit of a boost.
Last week, all three of us here at CreativeWritingMatters hit the big time. On the right is the gallery to prove it. There are over three million books on Kindle and over two million on Kobo. Yes, they are divided into categories but to be in the top twenty of anything is brilliant. Please DO click on each picture to appreciate the full glory of our successes. Yes, we're showing off. It isn't very English of us, but hey...we are ABSOLUTELY THRILLED!
The Silver Locket is the first in Margaret's very successful Charton Minster series. Here it is at No 1 on Kobo. Her latest novel Magic Sometimes Happens is the fifth. The ebook is out now and the paperback due on November 6th.
Sophie's award-winning The Generation Game reached No 16 in Books. That's ALL books!
My success came with the help of some very famous names from the Romantic Novelists Association. My story was chosen to go in the latest anthology, Truly, Madly, Deeply. If you look closely, you'll see a little yellow flag that says #1Best Seller in Romance Literary Fiction. Truly, Madly reached No 12 in Kindle Store Books.
So there we are! An amazing week for the team. I can't imagine there'll be another one quite like that again, but you never know. Anything can happen!
We can't predict what the future will bring. This time last year entries for the first Exeter Novel Prize were coming in and we were wondering who would win. Now we're wondering who will win the this year's competition! Could it be you? Go HERE
