Now anyone involved in ebook publishing knows that Amazon’s charts can be a bit fickle. Sometimes all it takes is a handful of sales at the right time to boost a book into one of the many top tens. But still… For all of our titles to be up there is really quite something. What’s more striking is that many of these top hundreds are for all books in a category – they’re not just ebook charts.
In a very short space of time at infinity plus we’ve built up an impressive list of authors, and some fantastic books. Authors include top science fiction, fantasy, horror and crime writers such as World Fantasy and Hugo Award winner John Grant, British SF Award winners Eric Brown and Garry Kilworth (also a World Fantasy Award winner), and more.
One possible reason for the current surge in sales could be Paul Cockburn’s fantastic review of a number of our titles in the current Interzone, the UK’s longest-running and multiple award-winning SF magazine. Having said that, it’s always hard to make the connection between a particular piece of publicity and sales, as there’s usually a time lag, particularly as people will often download samples rather than immediately buying an ebook.
Whatever the reason, it’s good to see our authors being rewarded by chart success in this way: it’s a fine set of books, and I’m hugely proud to have been involved in getting them out to their audiences.
