I got a phone call this afternoon from one of the managers at the Kansas City Star, publisher of Ye Olde Quilts of the Golden West. After I answered her initial question, I asked one of my own: how many books had sold?
She didn't know about this month's sales. In September, though, when the book first came out, the book sold...
nearly 5,100 copies!
After I picked myself up off the floor, I thanked the Great Editor for His help and encouragement. Then I called my mom.
