New, 35 comments

We're a month from South Bend. Plenty of time left to get up to speed on the 2015 football season....

Just wanted to share some sales rankings and reviews and encourage everyone to jump in if you've only had a toe in the water...

**

Smashwords

#1 seller in all categories. 5/5 stars based on 9 reviews.

You guys hit Smashwords hard and I can't thank you enough.  Obviously, I'm happy wherever you buy it, but as I mentioned before, we get a much more generous cut via Smashwords, you're supporting a small publisher that pays authors fairly and it downloads to any feature format (Kindle, Nook, iPad, any tablet, computer) flawlessly.

Amazon

We're doing well with the 800 pound gorilla of the self-publishing world.  It has been in the Top 10 in all relevant categories the entire week.  5/5 stars on 7 reviews.

Apple iTunes

Currently #2 in Football.  We've been doing great over there.  Not enough reviews have been logged for it to show any data (they need a certain number to trigger public data) so any help y'all could offer there would be greatly appreciated.  If you've got some iTunes credits or gift cards saved up, it's a great way to use 'em up.

Barnes & Noble

Not a major retailer for us, but please feel free to use that B&N gift certificate that has been burning a hole in your pocket.

Just wanted to update everyone, thank those of you who have been tweeting or sharing it on Facebook and ask for your continued help in spreading the word.  Word of mouth, social media and simply discussing it on other Horns websites or local radio is a huge help for us.  Obviously, I love the community here and we have our own inside jokes and have created a fun culture, but this is something that's meant to be disseminated and enjoyed amongst all Longhorn faithful.  I don't want it to be our little secret.  So share it.

Our only frustration is that everybody loves the preview and we get fantastic feedback from the readers, but we've barely touched a fraction of the potential enthusiasts who would love to read smart and entertaining football takes.  We can't get the word out without your help.  

Thanks again for buying, reviewing and recommending.
