So… my first foray into novel publishing is off to a very good start!
Before the official launch free ebook promo window of this past weekend could even begin, Thunderbolts and Dunderheads A Myth-sterically Funny Novel by Todd McGinnis became an Amazon.ca #1 Bestseller in one of its prime categories and reached #3 and #4 Canada-wide in two Fantasy subcategories and was being promoted by Amazon.ca as a Hot New Release!
By Monday Aug 3, it had also cracked 3 categories on Amazon.com getting into the Top 5 at #3 in Comic Drama & Plays, Top 20 at #18 in British Humour & Satire and the Top 25 of one of its key Fantasy subcategories.
Even further, the book is enjoying great reviews on both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca from those who’ve bought it/downloaded it.
On that note… Thanks to everyone who bought/ordered/downloaded the book in its official launch. The reviews and ratings have been amazing and your support (whether friend, longtime fan of my staged works or stranger looking for a laugh) is very much appreciated and most importantly, will hopefully result in a lot of smiles and laughs.
It’s a thrill knowing that people who’ve enjoyed humorous fantasy like Good Omens, the Discworld Novels or Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy are starting to hear about my divine bad-day-at-the-office comedy set among the gods of Mount Olympus.
More milestones are sure to come and I’ll be sharing them all here first. Figuring out how best to communicate with your audience across countless ever-changing platforms will take time but we’ll get there.
And there should be some news about my next comedy novel (already in process) in the next couple months.
As always thanks for stopping by.
Stay safe. Stay healthy. Keep smiling and do what you can, whenever you can, to make others smile. They may need it.
