So WILD hit Amazon UK's top 100 in Kindle books and Contemporary Fantasy! And it's already sold more copies in two days than NIGHT AND CHAOS did all May, lol. I feel quite awesome about that, but for the sake of honesty about the indie thing, for anyone who's reading and thinks that means I've sold a shit-ton of books overnight: I've actually only sold five copies.

However, five copies in two days outstrips my other self-published works, and frankly if only one of the five people who bought a book enjoys WILD, I will feel amazingly awesome.

In other news, Carina Press are looking to hire freelance editors. Wow. I would love to do that, except I don't have a year's paid experience at editing. I suppose I could big up my experience with Static Movement? And the fact that I've critiqued for other people for years in a non-professional capacity. I doubt that would actually count for much, but I'm actually pretty confident in my editing chops, and people at SM have thanked me for providing useful feedback and commentary on their work. I don't know. I might just apply anyway.

In other other news, I have been awake since 4am. Stuff has been happening this week. I'm really tired of listening to myself rehash it all in my head and on my blog, so I'm declaring my blog officially a Stuff-free zone from now on. I appreciate everyone who stops and reads and offers support or words of wisdom, I really do, but I'm going to try to focus on non-Stuff issues here from now on. Like the short story posts, which hopefully I'll start next week. Watch this space!
