You Did It!!!

Post by Scott »

FRIENDS,

Yesterday's Book of the Day, Tick by Allison Rose, started out ranked #19,886 on Amazon based on downloads (#94 in its category).

You took it all the way down to triple digits overall (#878) and, wait for it, #5 in its category! That's right. You put it on the top 10 list in its category. Check it out:

Of course, we didn't do it alone. One reason this book is doing so well is because it's a great book. Among other things, it has received an incredible review from bluemel4.

So please congratulate the author @"Allison Rose" for writing an excellent book and achieving well-deserved success! :D

And hop over to that review topic, check out the review, and thank @bluemel4 for the well-written review and helpful recommendation. :)
