Dare I Call It Murder?
August 10, 2013
Marking the first monthiversary of the release of my book, I offer you all a heartfelt THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Your support, your positive reviews, and your enthusiastic recommendation of the book has catapulted it onto several Amazon Best Seller lists for both Memoir and True Crime. The book has remained in the top 10 of three categories ever since, currently residing at
- #3 in Kindle eBooks / Biographies & Memoirs / Arts & Literature / Authors
- #4 in Books / Biographies & Memoirs / Arts & Literature / Authors
The book sat atop the Hot New Releases list for Biographies and Memoirs of Authors for two weeks—until the clock ran out and Amazon no longer considered it a “new release.” The book climbed to the #2 spot on the Hot New Releases True Accounts list.
A delightful side benefit of this exposure has been connecting with other authors, hearing from former students, and reconnecting with friends from childhood, high school, college, and the many paths of life I have traveled. I am hearing from people all over the world, some who recall the tragedy being in the news, and others who simply found in my book a message or story they could relate to personally.
A nice bonus are the emails from people I’ve never met, but who have written to thank me for writing the book. In many instances, they too have experienced a violent loss—joining the club none of us wanted to join—and say the book has helped them see that they are not alone, and the intense emotions they still feel years and even decades later are normal under the circumstances.
