Lost Exit Climbing The Amazon Best Seller Charts

Not a misprint .....as of today, LOST EXIT is now #43 on Amazon's list of Best Selling Sports Fiction, ahead of books by greats like Dan Jenkins, Frank Deford, Peter Gent, and Don deLillo.  It comes as a little bit of a surprise since I never considered LOST EXIT much of a sports book, even though the central theme revolves around basketball.  For me it is more about a troubled kid coming of age, with a few mobsters, drugs, and dead bodies thrown in for good measure, along with a little sex and some more violence added to round out the good, wholesome fun......but I'm excited about the book's climb up the charts.

Thanks all! Considering how volatile and erratic Amazon's ratings can be from day to day, chance are good the book could plummet by this time tomorrow....or be #1.
The only thing I know for sure about this is that I don't know anything.

There you go again mighty Mr Michaels -- letting hopes and dreams carry you as high as a cold rush of air, smack dab in your face.

Plummet? "Pshaw" I utter!
