50 Voices of Disbelief cracks top 4000

Earlier today, we briefly reached an Amazon UK ranking of 3996 (for all I know we may have peaked even higher).

We're falling back again now, but that's a very healthy ranking, especially for a book that won't even be published for a couple of months. The publicity from the interview with Viktor Nagornyy must have had an impact - Ophelia Benson has given the interview a couple of mentions over at Butterflies and Wheels, and the link from Richard Dawkins' site probably helped a lot. Thanks to all concerned.

We peaked at about 100,000 on Amazon the other day. Even that's not bad for a book that won't be published in the US until October. Again, we've slipped back now ... but the signs are hopeful that 50 Voices of Disbelief will attract some interest.

Hey, you've made onto RD.Net. Do you get an official strident, militant and proud atheist badge with a beatific RD on it?

Really, Russell, you should tone it down, people like to be condescended to when discussing religious belief. ;)

Awesome! I'm glad we did it. I enjoyed it.
