I want to thank Red Room authors on behalf of Patry Francis for the support so many of you gave by helping to spread the word about her novel as part of THE LIAR'S DIARY Blog Day yesterday. Patry is completely overwhelmed, and deeply grateful. Her agent said yesterday "was one of the most rewarding days --if not the most rewarding day-- I've had in publishing..."
385 bloggers (69 of them Red Room authors) helped move her novel from a ranking of 55,000 on amazon.com at the start of the day, to #1 in Mystery, 375 overall by evening, where it remains today.
The National Post did an excellent story on our blogging effort on the 29th, and this morning, told us it's their third most-read online story EVER. We're hoping that others in the print media will now cover the story. What took place was a remarkable demonstration of the power of the Internet community, and deserves to be told.
Thank you all again.
