Today I heard from my agent, and the NYT mass market bestseller list for January 23, 2011 will show Frostfire coming in at #32 on the extended list. There was much tough competition from huge names, and many rollover titles, and since the list was calculated only four days after my release date probably only about half of my first week sales counted toward it. For all those reasons #32 is a genuinely awesome showing.
Plus it's the Times. Come on, who is going to cry about making the Times list, wherever one's book lands? Not me.
Since no one picked #32 (and that is partly my fault for suggesting numbers 1-30; the extended list actually runs to #35 -- I forgot this) I put the names of everyone who participated into the magic hat, and the winner of the Odd Times pool is:
Nina, when you have a chance please send your ship-to info and what you'd like for your BookWish to LynnViehl@aol.com. My thanks to everyone for joining in as well as getting out there and buying Frostfire. You guys are the best.
