Last month’s promotion on Amazon paid off. 35 Miles From Shore has been a top 50 aviation title off and on since it was first published. I’ve cracked the top ten a couple of times, usually after the documentary Why Planes Crash airs. But it’s quite an accomplishment to crack the top five on a book that was published over seven years ago.
Total sales for 35 Miles From Shore is right around 10,000 copies sold with a total net so far of over $50,000. This all bodes well for my next book. One of the hardest things for any author is getting the word out on a new book. While not all of those 10,000 books are Amazon sales, anyone who purchased the book on Amazon will receive an email notifying them of my next book. That will give Scapegoat a great head start.
As for Scapegoat, I’ll have an update very soon.
Someone had to tell everything, every known detail about this accident, as blames against the crew were easily spelled out. Who in this world does his best and deserves such a watter fall of bad judgement? This story hasn’t ended up even in the minds of those who were there and are still here in this world… not accepting the facts. Take a fatal accident, full of evidences that is was fool, fully avoidable, you won’t have to look for it very hard, one that everybody has died. A master Cap sleeping and two first officers checking the cockpit devices without ANY clue of what was happening. On flight 980, saving lives was the objective, and that was done.
