Broke Amazon’s Top 100!

Well, today for one brief moment, probably more like several hours, Dead and Kicking kicked its way into the top 100 for its category on Amazon.ca. Good thing I took a screen capture, because it was fleeting at best.  This time at least.

one fleeting moment Oct27

Self-publishing a book is what you call a long game. Sure, there are some that luck out and find themselves with just the right set of circumstances at just the right time that helps them to rocket up the charts, but for the most part, it’s a slow and steady momentum as you build up your social platform and spread the word.

I think I’m doing the right things, pushing my book, but not pushing so hard that people are put off. Joining in on the conversation on Goodreads and Twitter, contributing to the communities there, without laying on a constant sales pitch. Trying to engage you, my readers both here and on Pinterest.  Getting my book out in front of bloggers and reviewers.

I think I’m succeeding.  I hope I’m succeeding.  I guess if sales continue to grow, I’ll have my answer. Hopefully next time I hit the top 100, I’ll be there to stay.

Hey!  I’ve set up a Pinterest account for all things Harry Russo Diaries.  Come check it out Pinterest.com/LisaEmmeBooks/


I’ve pinned all sorts of great things related to Harry’s world and Dead and Kicking. In the future, I’ll set up boards for each new release.  I’m calling these boards ‘Prop Galleries’ because they have pictures of many of the accessories, vehicles, and outfits I needed in order to tell Harry’s story.

If you’ve read the book already, you’ll know that Harry loves to eat, so I’ve also created a Recipe board with some of Harry’s favourite foods and all the things Harry hopes Isaac will make for her.

There’s even a board for Harry’s store, Contain Yourself, where Harry pins ideas for creating gorgeous looking planters.
