As of noon Tuesday, Feb. 19, H. Terrell “Terry” Griffin’s “Collateral Damage” is currently No. 1 in the private investigator category on Amazon’s Kindle downloads; No. 5 in the mystery/thriller category; and No. 45 for overall downloads.
Sales were even ahead of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games” and John Grisham’s “The Racketeer.”
The mystery behind the book’s success?
“Great writing, handsome author,” Griffin said.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Amazon is offering the book for $2.99 as one of its February Kindle deals.
Griffin reports that the special deal has also helped the sales of his other novels.
