The Tavernier Stones: Amazon Bestseller

It's not every day that a friend's book is #3 #2 on the Amazon Mystery Bestseller list.  

After a year on the shelves, and some very positive press, Stephen Parrish's treasure hunt adventure novel has skyrocketed to the top of the charts.  

I want to see it go all the way to #1.  (ETA: It made it! Now onward to Top 10 Overall!)

Here's the deal: the book's Kindle price has been lowered to 99 cents.  You can choose to buy it for your Kindle OR you can download (free & easy) the Kindle app for your PC or Mac and get the book that way (also for $.99).  

I bought the book way-back-when for $13 and it was worth every penny then.  So this new price is an amazing bargain. 

However.  Steve, being the generous guy he is, will  BUY a review copy of the Kindle version for you, if you leave your email address in the comments.  You MUST, however, actually download the book in order for it to count towards sales.

I've talked about The Tavernier Stones on this blog before.  Steve has been actively promoting the book for over a year, in addition to supporting his friends' books and quietly critiquing and reviewing their work.  

You know what they say about karma?  

Nobody deserves this more.  Feel free to post a link on your blogs or FB, etc.  

Let's help it go to #1!

I definitely need a digital copy. Been thinking of adding another Kindle to our household and giving one to mom. Build that library with great books.

Hope you make it to #1 without our help, Steve. You deserve it!

I ordered Stephen's book a few days back (not digital but paperback). It arrived this morning, now I'm holding it in my hands. :)
I just know I'm gonna love reading it!

I just bought the hard copy, because I know I'm going to want it on my shelf after I read it, but I'm going to order the kindle copy, too, because he totally deserves that #1 spot.

Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention!

Just proves that the race is marathon, not a sprint.

So good to see this success, Steve! The momentum is with you, I think the top spot is going to be yours.
