…in Japan …on Amazon …in Kindle format.

 

But it’s still pretty cool. Smile

 

I check Amazon sales rank every once in a while to see how my book is doing ( it’s the only insight into book sales I have, amazingly enough ) and today when I check Japan, I see:

Number one baby!  Open-mouthed smile

 

Granted, Amazon track this value in pretty close to real time, so I am the number one selling game programming book in Japan for RIGHT NOW… in an hour I might be 50th…  but I’ll take it!

 

In another bittersweet milestone, I also just found the book on pirate sites for the first time.  That actually took longer than I expected to be honest.  I suppose an author or game developer should take it as a badge of honour that people will pirate what you created.

 

 

Oh, and Japan, you rock!
