A Numbers Game- 02

This certainly came as a bit of a surprise when I read it on

As the blog says, 'The chart-tastic news this week is that Ross Morton's latest The $300 Man has blasted its way in from nowhere to number 2 while The Tarnished Star is this week's oater-pickers favorite.'
1. The Tarnished Star - Jack Martin
2. The $300 Man - Ross Morton
3. Nightmare Pass - Lance Howard
4. Last Chance Saloon - Ross Morton
5. All Guns Blazing - Douglas Thorne
6. Draw Down the Lightning - Ben Bridges
7. Death at Bethesda Falls - Ross Morton
8. Return to Black Rock - Scott Connor
9. Silver Galore - John Dyson
10. Meredith's Gold - Philip Harbottle
All books available at where worldwide postage is free.
So that's all 3 of my books in this particular top 10. The $300 Man is not out till the end of May so that's on pre-orders alone - as is Jack Martin's The Tarnished Star... Colours seem to be popular in the titles too - black, gold, silver.

Firstly, congratulations! But I'm not that surprised. To me it shows what can happen with effective promotion. I hadn't heard of the book depository until you started mentioning it, so I think that reflects your success in directing people there. And of course 'Jack Martin' has been telling people all about this place and his book's selling well there too.

Congrats and best of success. And I agree with I.J. that Jack Martin has put Black Horse on the map for many of us on this side of the pond with his round the clock promotion.

Thanks, guys. The important issue is that people are buying westerns from the book depository - post free anywhere in the world, so that has to be good for westerns!
