RUSH: Well, it had to happen. My upcoming book to be released to a world clamoring and craving it, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans, we were number one in pre-orders and sales and all of that at Amazon for 11 days. On day 12 yesterday, we slipped to number two. I didn’t say anything about it. I didn’t say a word because, unlike others, I’m not gonna devote every moment of every program to my upcoming book. You know it’s coming on October 29th, the audio version, the e-book. And we were back and forth at number one on Barnes & Noble for the same period. Number one after the third day there, I think, for most of the remaining time.
So 11 days at number one. It’s almost unprecedented unless you’re talking about a Harry Potter book. I just want to take the opportunity to thank you all again. Now, there is an advantage if you pre-order. The pre-order price is just a little bit under $11, and the retail price at launch is around $19.99, I think, $19.50, something like. So there is an advantage to pre-order. But I’m not goosing pre-orders. No, no, no. I wouldn’t dare descend to that level. I’m just mentioning facts and reality here, and I wanted to take the occasion to thank you again, ’cause you all in this audience continue to make my day, and thus my week, and my month, and my year — every day, week, month, year. And I can’t thank you enough. It was a fun book.
People are asking, “Are there gonna be more?”
I’ll never tell. I’ll never tell! But we can do a lot with the character. Rush Revere and the horse can time travel, go anywhere in American history and bring things to life as they really happened. It’s written for 10 to 13-year-olds, but the book is for everybody. And it was really fun. I’m excited about it, and I wanted to thank you for keeping it at the top of the list, pre-orders, for as long as you did.
