Is it bad form to boast?

I feel a bit naughty saying this, but I'm just so blown away by the response that I have to...

49 reviews on iTunes USA for City of Blaze... 31 are 5 star, and averaging 4.5 overall.

I never expected that sort of response for this book. Of course I enjoyed writing it, and I thought maybe one or two people would like it. But this is... insanity!

Anyway, I shall stop boasting for now and bury my head in some more writing. Just with a massive grin on my face!


  1. I'm one of the many who has become a fan of yours. City of Blaze was incredible and just reeled me in. I could not put it down. When it ended, I went looking for Book 2. Nation of Blaze was not on iTunes yet so I started looking. was the place to go. Now that is finished I was concerned. I had seen you had blogged somewhere that you were going to take a break. At least a year seems like forever when a story is running around in my brain. I'm so glad you decided to skip your break and work on book 3. I know I'm not the only one that will be anxiously waiting!!!

  2. Thanks so much! I feed on these comments like Morghiad feeds on Blaze :D
    I'm amazed how well it's done on iTunes.
    Things are still pretty quiet elsewhere (Amazon/Goodreads/B&N etc.) but I can be glad for what I've got!
    I'm about 17k into Book 3 already, so who knows, might not be tooooo long a wait :) And I know exactly what's going into Book 4... oh yes.
