RUSH: Once again, thank you to everybody who is running out and picking up Rush Revere and the First Patriots. You know what else is happening? If you look at the Amazon chart, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims is climbing. We’re number one. Now, I didn’t check today. Last night number one and number five on the Amazon chart. Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims had fallen off the chart. Naturally, it came out in October. But now with Rush Revere and the First Patriots, people are finding the first book at the same time.
You know, Amazon is a very convenient place. You just go there, if you have an account, you buy it, gets delivered the next day, or a couple days if you want free shipping. It’s up to you, however you wish it. Good prices there. Barnes & Noble the same thing, Books-A-Million, any number of places. But people are finding it, it’s great. We found a Facebook post. Dean, Koko II, Koko Jr. up at the website found it. I don’t have it in front of me. I didn’t print it out. I can’t look at the computer screen, so I’m gonna paraphrase it.
A mother in Puerto Rico referred to these books as the next Harry Potter books for kids, that they just love ’em. They just eat ’em up. She called me the next J.K. Rowling. Yes. So we’re trying to track down who this woman is in Puerto Rico. We assigned Koko Jr. to this. I mean, that’s a huge compliment. I wish there were a way to say “thank you” that’s more impactful than just saying it. But to have the first book now climbing up the chart along with the second, if things hold up we’ll have both books on the New York Times list at the same time. You know the old saw about sequels. Sequels never do as well as originals, that old saw. We just knocked down all of these supposed bits of conventional wisdom, and it wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for all of you.
