I got the notice earlier today that Hat Trick was ranking in its main categories on Amazon. Mere moments ago (around 6:30pm ET), I grabbed this screen shot (click on it to see it larger in another window if you wish).

What it says at the bottom is this:
#15 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Teen & Young Adult > Literature & Fiction > Sports
#30 in Books > Teens > Sports & Hobbies > Fiction

#15! #30!

Something that makes me particularly proud of the #15 is that I am on this list with Bill Konigsberg’s Out of the Pocket, which is at #70. Keep in mind this book’s been out since 2008 so it’s excellent it’s still top 100. I love Out of the Pocket. As I worked on Hat Trick, Bill’s book was an inspiration and it’s an honor to be on the list with him. It would be awesome if Hat Trick could have the longevity of Out of the Pocket, but if not I’m honored to be on the list for however long the ride can last.
