Rhesus A – Top 50, Contemporary Fantasy UK Kindle

Woohoo! Rhesus A has climbed inside the UK top fifty of the Kindle Paid Contemporary Fantasy sales. Heh, so much for a certain vampire publisher who said she’s never heard of an indie publisher selling more than twenty copies. Just wish I had more reviews…
