Bestseller on Kindle and Crossings Book Club

Guess the "brief shining moment" I mentioned back on Monday has turned into a few good days. I just checked Amazon again and The Unfinished Gift was back at #4 on Kindle's Christmas bestsellers list. Not sure what accounts for this "Kindle surge," but it actually surpassed the hardcover edition, showing up at #14 on the Christmas bestsellers list for all books: hardcover, paper & Ebooks (the hardcover version was back at #30).

The connection between my book and Richard Paul Evans' novel, The Christmas List, got a little boost too. My book moved up as the 3rd book other customers also bought after buying his (#1, #2 and #4 are other books by him).

One last piece of encouraging news (for an author, these are like wonderful little Christmas presents I get to open early). Some of you may recall a post a few months ago, about my novel being picked up by Crossings, the largest Christian book club in the country. I just found out my book is #14 on their Christian fiction bestseller list.

Again...thanks to any and all of you who have bought copies of the book (a special "hats off" to any Kindle buyers).

Merry Christmas to you all!


  1. That's wonderful! With the pride I have in showing off some of my creations, I might have a tiny understanding of the recognition you appreciate in knowing that some one out there is buying your book!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Now I must know...what creations? Merry Christmas!

  3. Just finished reading your book and found it to be absolutely amazing! Read it in a day it was so good! I received it as a gift and had planned to buy it if I had not been given it! God used this book to encourage me to forgive and to share the love of Jesus with others no matter how they treat me. Iam asking God to ise your book in a big way to help others and also that it becomes a great success! Looking forward to the next one!

  4. reteach,

    Thanks so much for letting me know how the book affected you. I've prayed it would touch people the very way you described. Hope you have a wonderful New Year!
