Following my first live video interview on Sally Sue Ember’s CHANGES, I woke up this morning to a lovely surprise: The Power of Six had reached #1 on Amazon – without any ads or promotion!
So, I wanted to thank you all for your help with that. I know a lot of you have been kind enough to buy the book after finding out about it here, and I wish I could hug each and every one of you to thank you.
I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Oh, and a teaser: October 17 sees the one-year anniversary since Pearseus was first published. I have something very special planned for that date, with lots of giveaways, so mark the date on your calendar!
For a few more days, The Power of Six will be on sale. Read seven short sci-fi stories for only 99c!
Congratulations. I just picked up a copy to check it out.
Thank you so much! I’d have been more than happy to send you a copy as a small thank-you for taking the time to review Pearseus, though. 🙂
You’re welcome. I appreciate it, but am happy to support authors with a little cash when I’m choosing my own stuff to read 🙂
Congratulations! I have this book in my queue of books on my Kindle to read – my gosh, Nicholas, if you only knew how long that queue is! But I will definitely be reading The Power of Six before the year is out. 🙂
That’s so sweet of you, thank you! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Congratulations Nicholas! Wonderful news 😀
Thank you! 🙂 What’s even more astonishing is that it’s still going at #1 a week later – although I have to say that the ads kicked in a couple of days ago, so that probably explains it.
Congratulations! That is fabulous!
Thank you! I owe it all to you nice people! 🙂
Wow, what a feeling that must be, to reach #1 without ads! Happily envious for you. 🙂
Thanks! I think it was the interview with Sally that gave my book the extra push, plus my blog reminders. So I guess it’s not exactly true it reached #1 without ads, just that it did so without any paid ones. 🙂
Well that is inspiring NIcholas. To know that our voices are being recognized after participating in social media and blogs for long enough is validating. As authors we aspire for that time when people will seek our work without us having to remind them. 🙂
Hear, hear! 🙂
This is so wonderful Nicholas! Congrats! @v@ <3
Thank you, you’re too kind, as always! 🙂
Well done Mr Clever Trousers…… It is a fine read, too.
Thanks! My shirt is pretty smart, too! 😀
Wow, this is huge! Congratulations!
You’re too kind. It’s not that big a deal, really. I suspect that Sally’s interview helped a lot, so I sold over a dozen copies in a couple of days. We’ll see if it can be sustained.
Still, it felt good and was a much-needed boost to my ego! 😀
Nice job. Dead impressive. Congratulations.
Thank you! I meant it when I said it’s all thanks to you guys, though. 🙂
They’re a great bunch of stories and you’ve got them into a nice niche area there, too.
Thank you! 🙂
Thanks, Nat! I’m sure your awesome support and generous help had nothing to do with any of this. 😀
It’s all you, my friend! Your writing speaks for itself!
That is awesome… congratulations!
Thank you so much! I could not have done it without the support of all of you, so… thanks! 🙂
Congratulations, Nicholas! I’m ecstatic for you. May this be a continuing trend!
Thank you so much, that’s so sweet of you! 🙂
Very exciting Nicholas! Congratulations.
Thank you so much! I’m sure that all the support I’ve received by the RRBC has played a large part in this. 🙂
Wonderful news, Nicholas.
Thank you so much! 🙂
Wow, way to go Nicholas! I’m so happy for you! 🙂 What a lovely surprise to wake up to! 🙂
Thank you! May you,too, experience it real soon! 🙂
Aww thank you so much! I hope that as well. Relish in the glow, Nicholas! 🙂 You deserve it!
Congrats Sir. 🙂
Why, thank you my dear! 🙂
Congrats! That’s awesome, especially with no promotions.
Thanks, I’m as astounded as you are… 🙂
congratulations, that’s just great!
Thanks! I’m as amazed as you! 😀
Congratulations and well done! Without promotion and marketing? That’s phenomenal!
Thanks! I’m as surprised as you. I have ads scheduled, starting on the 5th, but nothing before that – save for my mentions here. Which is why I believe you had a lot to do with it! 🙂
Reblogged this on Sally Ember, Ed.D. and commented:
Look what happened to my most recent guest, Nicholas C. Rossis’, book of short stories, featured on CHANGES G+ HOA the very next day after his appearance!! Seeking new guests! https://www.sallyember.com/CHANGES for more info! Congrats to Nicholas!
I, for one, am amazed by the positive buzz the show has generated. I don’t suppose you accept repeat guests? 😀
Of course I do! Give me a reason (new book release, new philosophy, new haircut) and pick some dates!
Best to you!
Lol – deal! By the way, I changed the first sentence in the post to better reflect your contribution to the book’s success. 🙂
Awww, Shucks! Thanks!
I’ll make a deal: you provide me with at least one new guest (preferably a sci-fi/fantasy author, preferably another male) and you can be on every time you release a new book or have another reason!
Lol – no need to bribe me, I think my author fantasy friends like Nat or Charles would love to take part. Especially after seeing how great an experience it was for me – and how helpful it was to my book! I’ll be happy to ask fantasy girls like Elle and Frostie, too – among so many others. I’m flattered that so many great authors follow my blog! 🙂
Send them on over! Thanks!
I take full credit, of course! LOL. Mazel Tov, Nicholas!
Hear, hear! 😀
How exciting, Nicholas! I’m thrilled and inspired for you, congrats!
Thank you! I’m sure all your tweets and RTs did not help with this one bit 😉
I’ll have to try harder 🙂
Lol – you’re my inspiration, publishing one faultless book after another in record time. How much harder can you try??
Thank you so much! It’s all thanks to you guys – I haven’t promoted the sale yet! 😀
CONGRATS Nicholas 😀
Thanks, Chris! I’m pretty sure that your reblogs and kind help have not hurt one bit! 😀
I hope not Nicholas 😀 😀 😀
Congrats, Nicholas! Well deserved! Soon your work will reach the tipping point, if it hasn’t already… Then we’ll see who’s going on whose island for holidays 😉
Απ’το στόμα σου… 😀
That’s very sweet of you, thank you. I can only hope you are right, and that some day I’ll be able to make my living out of my passion. 🙂
Wow Nicholas – I’m so proud of you! Is that actual sales at 99c? This is truly amazing, well done! How long has it been on sale at that price? It’s been a while I think? It must have gained quite a momentum given time. That’s genius 🙂
It was 99c when first launched, then back to the normal price of $2.99. I put it back on sale earlier in September, advertising only on my blog. I have yet to promote the sale (I have scheduled ads to run later this month), which is why I was so surprised this morning!
