The Visionary Mayan Queen: Yohl Ik’nal of Palenque is now an Amazon Kindle eBook Best Seller!
On April 17, 2014 the book attained the Top 100 list for Amazon Kindle Free eBooks, and is still in this rating today.
For 3 days it has ranked #1 Kindle Free eBook in both Historical Fiction and Historical Fiction Romance – Ancient World.
It is truly amazing that so many people are interested in reading fiction about the ancient Mayas. As of yesterday, over 20,000 copies of the book have been downloaded. Hopefully many of these folks will read it! For those who don’t have a copy, you can take advantage of the free promotion for only 3 more days (ends on 4/22/14).
Needless to say, I’m very happy about this. Still a bit awestruck, actually. Feeling so deeply appreciative to all the people who contributed to this success, from my publisher Bryan Heathman at AudioInk Publishing, to my many friends who got the book and wrote reviews, to the savvy web promotion groups whose services I used.
Hugs to everyone!
As Bryan said in his press release:
Leonide’s approach was to take readers on a journey into the mists of time, drawing them in with a fascinating story, engaging characters, historical and archeological accuracy, and a tangible experience of the intriguing and complex ancient Mayan culture. . you can almost smell incense and hear drums and conches played.
