Someone in the UK must have blogged about the book on Saturday because I was totally not expecting that to happen. I had only sold 2 books in the UK to date, so to put the book in the hands of nearly 700 readers there is fantastic.

On Friday, I started the process to “reprice” the book. It now has a price at iTunes, B&N and Smashwords, so it’s only a matter of time before Amazon follows. Hopefully, some of the incoming traffic will be converted to sales.
