TIL: I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author

Today I got up like any other day and had myself a cup of coffee. Upstairs in the cabin's loft, Robin was entering some sales data form Del Rey in her spreadsheet and she said. "Huh, there's a new button in the author portal which indicates bestseller status. Guess what. You're a USA Today Bestselling Author -- twice!"

Yep, apparently, Age of Swords hit the 8/3/2017 list, coming in at 102, and Age of War hit the 7/12/2018 list. They came in 102 and 68 respectively. A little digging also shows Age of Myth hit the Amazon ebook bestseller list for 3/19/2017--a nice little surprise!

In other news...both Age of Myth and Age of War popped up on the Washington Post's Hardcover bestseller list (for the week ending April 7th).  That's the 3rd time for Myth and 5th time for War.  Age of Swords has been on the list at least once, maybe twice.

All that is some pretty nice surprises to wake up to.  Thanks all for your continued support!

  2. I've been reading all the comments and I'm not sure whether to buy the legends series first or revelations anyone have a suggestion??

    1. Personal Preference here - read the Riyria books chronologically first. I have been through the series a couple times and my enjoyment feels best with the Chronicles read first as you get to see the character building and growth first hand. The Legends books are in the same world but set back in history and by reading Riyria first you then see how history changes into myth and legend through time as what you "learned" in Riyria has changed through the ages... like real life history, myth, and legend. But... this is just a readers opinion. Michael J. Sullivan has some words about chronological vs publication order so check this site for his opinions :)

    2. And I differ from Unknown: I prefer them in the order they were published. But I am sentimental that way.

      The beauty is, they were written in such a manner that it doesn't matter what order you read them (the series, not the individual books).

    3. I second Emmett. Order of publication is the way to go (my humble opinion) though I believe they'd be fine read chronologically. Either way, enjoy the journey. :)

    4. I suggest Revelations first. It makes some of the reveals in legends better.
      Get the Audio books also.

  3. Congratulations to you both! That's a fine way to start the day. Hard earned & well deserved.
