My jaw dropped as I looked at the number of units downloaded: 421. I said something in a strangled voice to my wife. She believed something was really wrong until I showed her the figures. What's more, my ranking in Kindle free thrillers was in the top 25. At the moment I stand at 26. I've had 827 downloads in the USA and UK.
I don't have one penny more in my pocket, but I have a chestful of dreams.
