Firelight on the Amazon Best-Sellers List

Okay, this is so cool, I’m sharing it with everyone.  Last night, I decided to do a 5-day free promotion on Amazon for The Firelight of Maalda and today I noticed that it jumped up to #7 in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Magic in the top 100 Amazon best-sellers list, right next to Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance!  I thought it was so cool, I took a screenshot.

What struck me about the picture is the similarity of the covers.  In fact, I think Firelight’s cover is better, but I may be just slightly biased.  =o)  I have to give a big shout out to Brielle Porter who designed and created the cover for Firelight.  Brielle is an awesome and talented new artist!  A big thank you goes out to her.

Another shout out and thank you goes to Terri at My Book Boyfriend for posting her review and interview for the tour on her blog.  Thank you, Terri!

Terri is a friend I met online who offered to participate in the tour this month.  I was lucky because Terri’s feedback is very helpful.  So what did she think of Firelight?  Here is a snippet from her review:

This book takes place not far from where the first book left off. Basically starting in a new place, this author stays true to her style and world builds with rich Technicolor. The vivid imagery helps build the palate in your mind as you read. I found the story line very interesting and captivating. So for those readers who enjoyed the first in the series, this one will not disappoint. Pick it up now and read. For those fantasy lovers, pick this story up. It’s fresh and new and will hold your interest.

Thank you, Terri!  I hope to see you again at the next tour for The Return, the third and final installment of the trilogy, The Legend of the Raie’Chaelia.

Happy Reading!
