What's Hot in Epic Fantasy Audiobooks?


Well, I'm pleased to say a fair amount of my books are (#1, #13, #24, #27, #33, #46, #61).  Here's the list of the top 100 Bestselling Fantasy Epic Audio books (as listed on Amazon). But that's been the case for quite some time. The real reason for making this post today is that The Crown Tower (Book #1 of the Riyria Chronicles) currently on sale for just $3.95.  But you'll have to hurry as the sales ends August 31st.  Anyway, here is the full list:
