Time for a bump!

It's been a pretty good week for the book, with a total of six 5-star reviews now, and a visit into the top 500 Paid in Kindle Store rankings for the first time.

So, it's a big thanks to everyone who's bought Life...With No Breaks so far!

I hope that those of you who click through to the book's page on Amazon after reading this will find something they like too and give it a go

Here's a few excerpts from the most recent 5-star reviews:

"What a great read! It is well-written, witty, thought-provoking, and brilliantly funny. These stories really resonated with me (yikes! that's scary...) and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something fun to read. Plus the price is obscenely low."

"I truly enjoyed your book, but more than that your stories. I really did laugh out loud at some, and chuckled at others. You've had some unusual things happen to you and the descriptions of the events are just hilarious."

"Read this book if you want a laugh. Spalding delivers. It's definitely worth the awesome price of 1.49. I'll definitely be on the look out for any other works by this author."

Well...the wording on Amazon is: 83% buy the item featured on this page.

So I'm going to go with that...

After all...it doesn't sound like much of a promotional pitch if I'm going on about people buying something at random.

...Unless I'm promoting a credit card, I suppose.

I'm no mathematician, but I went to that page and bought the book, so that's 100% of me. Bet eveyone else who bought the book find that 100% of them did, too. I was also 100 percent tickled pink by it, which is what counts. 100% of me also bough Dan Brown's *Lost Symbol* the day it came out and was 100% pissed off by it a day later. And it was hundreds of percent more expensive than Nick's which made my pissed offness 400% worse than it would have been had I been pissed off by *Life Without a Break*, which, of course, I wasn't. I'm currently 90% not pissed off with another MR member's book which I 100% bought at Smashwords the other day. Neil

No... technically you were infinitely more pissed off at buying the Dan Brown book compared to buying Nick's book.

Again, I fear for people who do not understand statistics.

Statistics are contrived for misunderstanding, Dadio. I love 'em, largely because they're so flexible that misunderstanding them is 87.5% of the fun. I fear for people who do understand statistics. Because I suspect that, like quantum theory, anyone who understands statistics doesn't understand statistics. Neil

A $1.49 Kindle ebook with DRM? Are you planning to be a major publishing house one day and want to get started on the right foot?

Didn't have much choice on this one (from what I can tell). The option to not have DRM isn't selectable for some reason on the Kindle upload dashboard.

Though if you know how to do it, then please let me know...DRM being the work of the devil 'n all.
