MONSTROUS

The one thing going on at Amazon that makes Monstrous continue to look like a happening thing is the movement in number of outlets selling used and new copies. Places carrying new ones has up-ticked twice in the last few days, and unless my mind’s been playing tricks, there has also been a sudden drop from eight used copies to six, suggesting actual new readers. One place bought it from another and is trying to unload it in a still-new condition– what’s up with that?

I miss the days of Statistically Improbable Terms. It was thanks to that feature that I learned my book employed the three terms in today’s headline more than any other book out there. Concordance was another fun feature, showing my hundred most common words, though by that measure it looked like Monstrous was less about anything in particular than almost any other book. Other features gone by the wayside showed that I used far less big words than most but made up for it with much longer sentences, and that only seven percent of all books were fatter. This last is one reason I want to go Kindle, so that no one gets intimidated by thickness.
