173 Downloads of Anabar's Run in 2 Days and my first time on Amazon's top 100 Free Bestseller List

So far my current promotion to offer Anabar's Run for free is going very well with 173 downloads in two days for Amazon US and UK.
There is even more good news as the book has made two of Amazon's bestseller lists. It is ranked #19 on Amazon's US Kindle > Children's ebooks > Action Adventure top 100 free bestseller list. It is also ranked #17 on Amazon's UK Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Children's Fiction > Literature > Action & Adventure top 100 free bestseller list.
So what does this all mean? Well, I can say for sure that this free promotion is helping get my book some attention. That has to be a good thing. Now I hope this leads to some good reviews and then to some sales. I also hope the people who are downloading the book will want to read Anabar Rises, book #2 in my Anabar series.
For those of you who have downloaded Anabar's Run this week, thanks. This is really good news for me.
P.S. Please check out and follow my Anabar Series Blog. It is a fun site where I am continuing to tell Anabar's Story.

Review and Interview for Anabar's Run on Bookworm Blather Blog

Big thanks go to Michelle Isenhoff, a blogger, writer, and teacher who writes the excellent Bookworm Blather Blog. Michelle recently wrote a great review for Anabar's Run and interviewed me for her 5-Q Interview feature on her blog.

I really appreciate her honest review of Anabar's Run. I agree with her assessment that the book is best suited for readers age 8-14, and I have starting to market the series to these younger readers I also appreciate Michelle's positive mention of my blog/website for my Anabar Series. I think it is a fun, unique site for my readers, and it is especially nice to have someone else like it.
