|A few of my friends from Colgate University sent me a picture of their Kindle.|
|The lovely mother of one of my former students|
took a picture of my book (on an iPad, I think).
On Sunday I shared a podcast interview with Stuart Beaton in China.
Then, for over 24 hours on Monday, my friends and their friends stormed Facebook with dozens of links to the book.
Today, my book was featured on the blogs of two lovely, talented writers: Jane Cornelius in Shanghai and Susan Blumberg-Kason in Chicago. You should visit both of their blogs if you are interested in women who write about China and life!
Tomorrow, I'll be making guest appearances on a couple more blogs.
As of Tuesday evening, HK time, my e-book is #1 in the Beijing Travel categories on Amazon US and UK, #1 in China Travel on Amazon US, #12 in Asia Travel on Amazon UK, and #16 in Travel Memoirs & Bios on Amazon US. I am enjoying this while it lasts!
The coolest thing that has happened is that my friends have started sending me pictures of The Olympics Beat on their e-readers. I'm so grateful to have this kind of support and enthusiasm.
|Some of my closest friends from Colgate are having |
grand adventures in Peru right now,
but they took the time to send a pic.
|This one might be my favorite because it comes from one of my former|
students from the US who just graduated from high school this weekend.
