Broke 100,000

Macbeth the Usurper dropped rose above 100,000 in ranking. For the first time ever, I have a work ranked in five digits.  Small victory, but a victory nonetheless.

FYI, three sales took me from #1.7 million to #95,000.

This also marks the first time that I've had three sales in one week.

FYI, I ain't counting my money yet. Sales just may tank after this week.

Now to generate some BUZZ...? :>

That's like saying, "Let's make this horse jump near that pile of sawdust."

My little buzz machine is not very loud nor very persistent, but it is a better buzz machine than last year.

I'm one of the sales. I read the "look inside" part on Amazon and was hooked with bit about finding witches at the crossroads. It felt like a cross between Shakespeare and Supernatural - how could I resist?

Thankees. And those witches were a hoot to write.

I'll tell you a story.

Macbeth, when he meets the witches, remarks that they have beards. I thought that odd and I eventually worked out a solution. Later on, I thought about this again. A theatre company would be full of men. Presumably, these parts of the witches would have been played by men in beards, in dresses, talking in falsetto. Images of Monty Python came to mind. So yes, even Monty Python is derivative of the Bard. To make those witches cooler, I realized that they were making fart jokes. So yes, fart jokes are Shakespearean, too.

Oh, and leave stars and bars. Pretty please.
