This is a test of the Amazon tweaking system.. This is only a test...

The sound you are about to hear is the sound of millions.... well thousands .. .well... hundreds .... maybe tens of tens .... or maybe ten, anyway, a few ... or a couple ... people helping get the word out about a couple of books near and dear to my heart.  And,. we'll test a theory that soomeone has that mere page views are sufficient to raise a book's ranking at amazon.

So what I'm asking you to do is to go to with your favorite browser, and -- under books -- type in the words _Carousel Tides_  ...
and then look at the resulting pages, and select the one most appropriate to Sharon Lee.  The book in question is due out in November and can be ordered now.

That's all -- go look!  I note that as I send this the ranking of Carousel Tides is at Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #62,090 in Books  and the other info is that it is:
#4 in  Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Authors, A-Z > ( L ) > Lee, Sharon
#44 in  Books > Comics & Graphic Novels > Manga > Science Fiction
#88 in  Books > Comics & Graphic Novels > Manga > Fantasy

So (while wondering WTF about the graphic novels stuff) if you go look (and really, you can order one if you're in the mood, we won't mind!) let's see where the book ends up ... in say 12 hours and 24.  IIRC it was ranked 167,000 and change  a couple days ago, but we want to see if casual interest is enough to trigger amazon-splurge. 


Oh yeah, as a sort of control, you can also look for Korval's Game   ... which is due out next May sometime, and which ranked at Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #478,434 when I posted this.

really, thanks....
