Apparently Goodreads uses its mass of data to find the books that have been published in a given month and ranks them by how popular they are. I don't know the complete algorithm but certainly the number of times a book shows up on a shelf has something to do with it.
In any case, I was curious, of course, about my most recent release and my next book to come out. To my delight both are making their respective lists.
- Most Popular Books Published in December 2015 - The Death of Dulgath #21
- Most Popular Books Published in June 2016 - Age of Myth #2
How cool is that! I can't believe how excited people are for the new series - I know I am. Thanks to all the goodreads readers who are showing your support for the books by putting them on their shelves. I'm forever grateful. June can't arrive soon enough!
