And then this happened…Ranking on Amazon by Mae Clair

Sometimes things just fall in your lap when you least expect them. Last evening I was playing around online and decided to hop over to Amazon and see how my latest novel, A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS was faring. This is a mystery/thriller/suspense novel that was released the end of April. It’s been doing pretty well for me, but not busting off the charts. And then I found this:

Bestseller status? After I picked myself up off the floor I checked my ranking. It’s even better this morning:

#132 overall
#1 Mystery/Thriller/Suspense 
#1 in Science Fiction/Fantasy 

Gobsmacked! Needless to say, I’m doing the happy dance today. My publisher reduced the price of A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS to .99c and right now it’s part of a back to school e-book blast, so I’m sure that is what has contributed to its rise. I’m going to enjoy the spot as long as I can. In addition, I woke up today to discover I am the Author of the Month at K.C.’s Books and Music, another goodie that has me soaring high.

A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS by Mae ClairOnly another author/writer can truly appreciate what these kind of accolades mean, and I appreciate being able to share them with all of you. If there are any readers of mystery/suspense/thrillers out there, I invite you to consider A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS, a book combining historical fact, fiction and the urban legend of the Mothman. I spent two years researching this novel and took two trips to the town where it is set to lend authenticity to the story.

 

Rather than provide the blurb, I thought I’d share a review I received from New York Times bestselling author, Kevin O’Brien.

Mr. O’Brien is one of my favorite writers, and his work is routinely on the NYT bestseller list. I was honored and humbled to receive this review from him, which I think explains the story as well as my blurb would:

Promo pic with bookcover and spooky background. A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS by Mae Clair“A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS is masterful, bone-chilling fiction that begins with a real-life tragedy on December 15, 1967: the Silver Bridge collapse in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.  46 people died.  Author Mae Clair has seamlessly woven fact, fiction and creepy urban folklore into one intense thriller.  The gripping story focuses on two witnesses to the disaster—fifteen years later.  Both Eve Parrish and Caden Flynn lost loved ones in the catastrophe and still carry the emotional scars.  After a long absence, Eve returns to Point Pleasant to bury her recently-deceased aunt, face some old ghosts, and reunite with her one-time “impossible-crush,” Caden.  But when Eve begins to investigate her aunt’s death, she’s plunged into danger and a nightmare world where scary urban legends are very real.  Full of suspense, A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS will keep you guessing, gasping and turning the pages for more.”

~ Kevin O’Brien, New York Times bestselling author

If the story sounds like something you’d enjoy, now is a great time to grab your copy for just .99c. You can always read it later…urban legends make great reading during Halloween…just sayin’ 🙂

  2. I’m so excited for you, Mae!! I’m dancing the happy dance around the room. (Okay, it’s more of a happy shuffle, but it’s the THOUGHT that counts, right?) SUCH fun to see something like this, isn’t it? I hope it lasts a long time, but no matter what happens, it’s getting your book out there. I’ve tweeted, posted on FB, and on Pinterest, and will continue to do so. Congratulations!! And thanks for sharing. Hope everyone will check out the book, and will pass this post along to all their peeps.

    • Wow, thanks, Kassandra. Both for the congrats and for grabbing a copy. I truly hope you enjoy the story. It was challenging but also fun to blend the history of the bridge collapse, the town and the Mothman legend with my own twists and turns. 🙂
