The sales rank for the book has fallen through the floor finally, having been buoyed by publicity from various quarters, not least you guys. There's an event horizon for all publicity, a point beyond which the message won't escape, regardless of how loud you shout, and I think we might have reached it. I've tried to get in touch with people who could push it out further, but to no avail so far. People are still buying the book, and probably in greater numbers than they ever have before, but the initial rush seems to have died down. I still have no idea exactly how many books have sold, as Lulu won't get their figures together for a little while yet, but I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who's bought a book, donated their hard-earned money or promoted the books for bricks site. You're all brilliant, and we appreciate each and every one of you.

I'm going to keep on promoting, whenever I think of a new way to get the message out, so this is not the end, but I don't think I'm likely to see sales ranks of the kind I saw last week again. You took my little book and briefly put it amongst the big boys. It was outselling all sorts of relatively high-profile books and it felt really, really good, so thank you again.

I bought two this week and sent one to my young cousins (13, 11 and 8) so I'll get them to let me know what they think of it and send a review for you - all positive feedback can only help!

Thankyou. It's good to know it's still spreading :)
