The text below is stolen word for word from our brother Tod's blog. I was just about to blog the same thing, a topic of conversation we had yesterday. But, since I am busy and he already wrote it, what is his is ours~
The problem with getting a book published in the 21st century vs. say, 1992, is that four months before your book comes out -- and in some cases, even longer -- it appears on Amazon, and with that comes the never-ending obsessive-compulsive sales-ranking tracking. It's stupid, really, since I know generally how little action needs to take place with your book to make it jump from 6 million to, say, 40K, but nevertheless, I end up checking up on my numbers on a fairly regular basis.
So, let's just make this official: On April 29th, 2005, Tod Goldberg began his slow descent into the dark hour of the human soul. Official Amazon sales ranking of his unreleased short story collection Simplify in paperback: unranked. Official Amazon sales ranking for his unreleased short story collection Simplify in limited-edition hardback: unranked.
