Thank you, (Amazon) Canada!

NotPoemsJustWordsGOOD NEWS WEEK 2: Who knew? Three weeks of being released on, ‘not poems, just words‘ started popping up in all of the Amazon sites around the world, and in Apple iBooks on iTunes and other online sites. But here’s a GOOD NEWS WEEK 2 post. The paperback is currently #21 in Canada’s Best Sellers list in Poetry>Love Poems category, and #2 in the Hot New Releases list in the same category. (The lists change quickly and so the reference may no longer be current, but as at the time of this post, the book ranks in those lists.) It’s awesome news, and I thank you, Canada!


Amazon rankings for ‘not poems, just words’

GOOD NEWS WEEK – Another shameless marketing update: After being listed online only two nights ago, ‘not poems, just words‘ Kindle Edition is CURRENTLY NO. 1 in the Amazon Hot New Releases in the Kindle Store ‘Love Poems’ category!

It is CURRENTLY IN THE TOP 10 overall in the Amazon Kindle Store eBooks Best Sellers in the ‘Love Poems’ category! The paperback format is still in the Top 40 (at the time of this post) in the Hot New Releases in the ‘Love Poems’ category (achieving its highest ranking of #15 two days after it was listed)!

And get this: It is CURRENTLY NO. 1 in both the Amazon Kindle Store Best Sellers and the Hot New Releases lists in the ‘Gay & Lesbian Poetry’ category and NO. 5 in the ‘Gay & Lesbian>Literature & Fiction>Poetry’ category, even though I didn’t consciously write it for such a category. What will Father Damaso and Mother Superior say, haha! Who knew my name will be listed alongside Allen Ginsberg’s Howl? No gratuitous or graphic passages, by the way.

Amazon has also uploaded the ‘LOOK INSIDE’ feature for the paperback and Kindle editions, so you can all have a glimpse of what’s in store.

You can also get the eBook on Smashwords here:
