The Death of Dulgath debuts in a big way


I'll probably never be a New York Times Bestseller.  Nor do I expect to make the USA Today's Bestselling list. For those that don't know, such lists are compiled on a weekly basis to show what books sold the most over the past seven days.  There are plenty of books on these lists that had one good week, and then faltered from there.  I'll always take a consistent seller over a one-week break out.

Still, I can't help but be thrilled that I finally have a book on one of the major Top 10 Weekly Lists.  In this case it was hitting Audible Bestseller for Fiction list.  Last week saw the release of a bunch of Harry Potter books on audible, so the competition was tough, but The Death of Dulgath still carved out a spot. Here's the complete list.


1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale (Pottermore from J.K. Rowling)
2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster, narrated by Marc Thompson (Random House Audio)
3. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale (Pottermore from J.K. Rowling)
4. The Rolling Stones by Robert A. Heinlein, narrated by Tom Weiner (Blackstone Audio, Inc.)
5. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale (Pottermore from J.K. Rowling)
6. The Martian by Andy Weir, narrated by R.C. Bray (Podium Publishing)
7. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale (Pottermore from J.K. Rowling)
8. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, narrated by Clare Corbett, Louise Brealey and India Fisher (Penguin Audio)
9. The Death of Dulgath: The Riyria Chronicles, Book 3 by Michael J. Sullivan, narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds and the author (Audible Studios)
10. The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore, narrated by Euan Morton (HarperAudio)

The really cool thing about hitting this list is all the various papers that publish it. Here's some of the places I've seen it posted so far:
I want to thank Tim Gerard Reynolds for his amazing narration, Audible.com for producing a fabulous recording, and all you listeners out there who helped make it's debut such a big success.

  2. Congratulations! The two books I bought on Audible this month was on the list. Yours and The Martian. Although I preordered yours months ago, while The Martian was a spur of the moment purchase.

    I think you can make the NY Times Bestseller list. I'll keep telling people I know to check out your books.

  3. , first and foremost I would like to congratulate you on another well written riyria Chronicle I've listened to all of the books in the series since I started them it has been hard to enjoy anything else I was sad to hear that this might be the last one but I understand your hesitance on protecting such a dynamic duo once again I just want to thank you for a wonderful series and I hope you continue to keep the series alive.

  4. Good job! Thanks for writing such entertaining books. FYI It was being on the audible banner that brought your work to my attention. Looking around the site, I found your free shorts and listened to those. That was a big selling point for me. Jester is an amazing work, fitting so much action and plot into such a short space. So I started with Theft of a Sword and have a lot of good listening ahead. Also your second book of that duo passes the Bechdel test!!! Thanks again.

  8. I must recommend reading the book The Girl on the Train: A Novel.
    I just finished reading it today, and I think its a very good book.

    I brought mine off Amazon and they delivered it in just 2 days.
