Note from JWR:

I am pleased to report that yesterday’s Book Bomb Day (April 8th) for “Patriots: A Novel Survival in the Coming Collapse” resulted in more than 2,000 book orders from, and drove the novel’s Amazon sales Bestsellers rank up to #6 (overall), #1 in Thrillers, and #1 in Contemporary Fiction. BTW, the #6 rank is respectable, considering that 3 of the 5 books ranked higher than “Patriots” are mega-sellers that are being driven by the very popular Twilight movie. It even edged out Oprah’s current touchy-feely favorite. Oh, and speaking of timely books, The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide: Protect Your Savings, Boost Your Income, and Grow Wealthy Even in the Worst of Times by Marty Weiss was also in Amazon’s Top Ten on Wednesday. I’d say that this is evidence that people are getting very concerned about the recession turning into a depression.

My sincere thanks for making the Book Bomb day such a great success. Please continue to spread the word about “Patriots”. Many Thanks!
