So, I randomly went on Amazon.com today to check out the Hijas page and was so pleasantly surprised to see that the book is having a big sales day– almost a year to the day after it was released (that anniversary is on Sunday– more on that then). I never know what causes a sales bump. Sure I was in New York and did several events around the book yesterday, but it seemed like every one who wanted a book bought one at the reading last night. But, as a writer, it’s always fun to see your book have a surge every now and again (trade secret: most writers, myself included, will check their Amazon sales rank a time or two each day right after their book comes out– the best rank I ever saw for Hijas was 8,000 on June 8th last year– the day of the Hijas launch party which I know had nothing to do with the launch party but that’s why the date is stuck in my mind). So thanks to whoever went out and bought the book today on Amazon. It’s fun to be ranked in ethnic studies, culture, and women studies!
