So I’m not exactly sure what happened here, but The Humanity of Monsters appears to, as I write this, be the #1 New Release in Horror Anthologies on Amazon.com? I’m also not exactly sure how the algorithms for the sales categories work on Amazon, and the subdivisions less so. So, mostly I’m going to just sit here and be shocked. If also thinking it fucking awesome.
And yes, I took a screencap:
As you do.
Although partly so that when this inevitably fleeting moment passes, I will still believe that that happened.
Also, the book is temporarily sold out on Amazon.com — though copies are still in stock on Amazon.ca. That happened fairly fast, since there were a not insignificant number of copies available on the US site yesterday.
All this coincides fairly well with the posting of the book’s first review on Amazon.com. (There have been reviews up on Goodreads for a little while now.) So I’m thinking that may have had something to do with it. Especially since the review has been deemed quite useful by people visiting the page.
Anyway. I’m sure it’s a confluence of factors. But it does explain the uptick in traffic on the website here from Google searches from a dozen or so countries looking for the anthology.
Whatever the case may be, I’m just going to enjoy this moment. :)
