I think this ebook stuff is starting to work out. Joseph Flynn/Stray Dog Press, Inc. has just crossed the 10,000 sales mark for the year on Amazon.com.

Many thanks to everyone who has bought one of my books. I hope I've made you as happy as you've made me.

Joe,
I'm so happy to see you beginning to succeed.  May you hit 100,000 before you know it.  In reading your website, I was struck by how much your publishing history mirrors my own.  (In my case, three novels published by NAL/Signet, two more by Five Star/Cengage.)  If we can just keep writing good stories, as you say, then maybe ebooks will allow us to not only reconnect with our prior readers but allow thousands more to discover our books.  Kudos, again. I look forward to following your progress.

Thanks to everyone who's wished me well. I must have forgotten to click the notify me of replies box or I would have gotten back to all of you sooner. I hope all of you are doing well, too. May the numbers of readers who buy our e-books continue to grow.

RobynB: The interesting thing about Nailed, it originally was supposed to be the second title of my two-book deal with Bantam. They turned it down, saying it was too much of a police procedural and they wanted more of a straight-on thriller. So I wrote The Next President, which worked out well for me as I kept the e-rights and it's selling nicely.

But people have really responded to Nailed as well. I hadn't thought to do another Ron Ketchum book, but when readers respond, a writer would be foolish not to listen.

Right now, though, I'm writing the third book in my Jim McGill series (The President's Henchman, The Hangman's Companion). Maybe after that I can revisit Ron Ketchum and Goldstrike, California. Hmm. Perhaps another research trip would be in order.

Oh, I definitely want to hear more from this "recovering bigot," which is a such a refreshing take on a cop (too many cops are depicted as alcoholics, which I realize might hold some truth, but still...). And I love Goldstrike, Steadman, and the whole feel of the area...definitely a place where more stuff could happen, methinks. :)

There's no denying that there is an element of pride, and even glee, in making such an announcement, but for me it's also encouraging to hear when someone in the same field I'm in is doing well. It triggers that old reflex: If he/she can do it, so can I.

Thank you, all, for your good wishes and right back at ya.
