Jin Shei Cover from sgreer

Drunk elephants on parade!

I first saw this particular little movie a LONG time ago and I loved it then - I tripped over a clip of it - it isn't the whole thing - on the Internets, from which all good things flow, and, well, you HAVE to see this.

Small crow -

Sure, these are fleeting, and will probably change before you get to the page to check them out. But if you look at the Amazon.com page for the PAPERBACK edition of "Gift of the Unmage", you will currently find this:

Amazon.com Sales Rank: #129,075 in Books
Popular in this category:
#55 in Books > Children's Books > Educational > Explore the World > Fiction > United States


And the Amazon.com page for "Spellspam" yields this:

Amazon.com Sales Rank: #151,668 in Books
Popular in this category:
#68 in Books > Children's Books > Educational > Explore the World > Fiction > United States

NEITHER BOOK is published yet, or will be released for nearly two months.

They are both *ranked* on Amazon sales lists. Pre-orders alone.

Yes, yes, yes, I know it all. I should quit obsessing about Amazon. The short answer to that is, I can't. And finding this - however fleeting a moment of time it might reflect - it's amazing to see. Whoever you good folks are out there who are preordering these books, thank you! Sometimes it really IS just nice to see a piece of unexpected good news that comes unasked for out of the blue ether.
