Review Wars Revisited!

In my last post I talked about how it was hard to judge success without having some idea of sales. Guess what? I found thus neat little sales tracker, so here are the figures for both books:

Here’s The Short Drop, being 10,435th may not look too good, but actually it’s not bad compared to some others I looked at (like over a millionth!). Remember these are sales ranks, not how many books sold, so smaller number equals doing better.

And here is Everything Burns at 49,719th. So it looks like the better reviews do correlate with better sales at least in this case.

All figures from, and just looking at Amazon uk which is where I got the books and reviews data from.
