Results of The Liar's Diary Blog Day

On January 29th, I participated in The Liar's Diary Blog Day for Patry Francis. If you go here, you can read the background about it.

I received an email from Karen Dionne on February 1st. Here, in part, is what she had to say:

"In the end, very nearly 400 bloggers helped move her novel from a ranking of 55,000 on amazon at the start of the day, to #1 in Mystery, 375 overall by evening. Those statistics prove the day was a success, but we knew it would be even before the day began because we could see the groundswell of support, feel the sense of community.

Canada's National Post did a story about our effort on the 29th, and the next day, told us it was their third most-read online article EVER."

I am very glad that I was a part of this effort. It goes to show that when people band together, great things can be accomplished.
