Your support got me on the New York Times Bestseller List (extended, at #29.)  My agent called just as I was leaving for rehearsal (or I’d have posted a thank you right away.)

First week sales for Kings of the North were slightly ahead of Oath of Fealty, even with so many Borders stores closed that used to be reliable sellers for me.  E-book sales were up 20-25% over last year; hardcover sales were down (expected, with the loss of those Borders sales) but on balance, it’s running a little ahead.

So thank you all, very, very much for your early support.

My agent also told me that Oath was nominated for a Gemmell Award (as were the books of several other writers he represents) for best fantasy novel, and cover art on some of the others for best cover art.  (Best fantasy novel nominees are here.

So all in all an exciting day, and it’s thanks to you people (and readers who haven’t found this place yet.)
