We're #1! And #3! Go-o-o-o-o team!

Okay, that title no doubt sounds silly from your perspective, but it's a big deal to me. You see, The Tour has hit #1 on Amazon's Sports Fiction list and The Race is simultaniously in the #3 position. Grisham's Bleachers is sandwiched in between. That's like a dream screen shot to me. Positions on these lists are updated hourly. You can see the current ranking by clicking here.

Another cool thing is that The Rider by Tim Kraabe which Amazon has linked to The Race through their "Better Together" promotion is currently # 6, so that's three novels from the same niche sport all at the top of the list. I'm proud of my role in that accomplishment and grateful to readers for the support they have shown by spreading the word about my books. Thanks!

Ra ra ree, kick 'em in the knee!
