It took us fifteen hours to sell 1,000 copies of THE MVP.  Fifteen is not a lot of hours:
  • In 2009 it took us 13 days to sell 1,000 copies of THE ROOKIE.
  • In 2010 it took us 6 days to sell 1,000 copies of THE STARTER.
  • In 2011 it took us 3 days to sell 1,000 copies of THE ALL-PRO.
Do they ever say "the fourth time's the charm?" If not, I might start saying that myself; try and make it a thing. Scott and I have been very happy with our year-over-year performance, but I won't lie: it is some kind of wonderful to be able to move 1,000 copies of a premium-priced, plushed-out hardcover in less than one day.

As always, this is only possible due to the dedication and tenacity of the exceptional people willing to walk this road with us. We are humbled by how extensively #junkiesfuckingrock, and we continue to strive for perfection because it's the best way to honor the commitment you guys make to our dreams.

I am immeasurably proud to be part of bringing Quentin's continuing quest out of Scott's mind and into our reality, and it warms my tiny black heart to see that so many people are excited about it too.

If you are looking for exact numbers, they won't be forthcoming. I'm a girl who takes managing expectations seriously, and there's simply no good way to do both things.

If you are wondering how many books we're printing, the answer is we don't yet know.  It'll be between 2,000 and 3,000, and where it falls depends on how many books are pre-sold between now and July 1st, when we have to give the printer our final details and finished files.

If you are wondering if THE MVP is worth the wait … oh hells yes it is. I promise.

In his defense they were cyber socks... cause regular socks are just too lame for the FDO. #HowHeRolls

Wow!  That is a big jump.  That just goes to show how amazing the goodness that the FDO provides really is.   It was a very smooth preorder, it seems like there was very little hiccups on the site, so total win all around.

Wow. That's insane. Pretty soon we'll be seeing stories like "tickets for 'The Rookie' movie sold out in one day".

Congrats Scott and the whole crew at DOM!  Now lets officially kick big publishing in the nuts to have them wake up screamming "What the fuck is this!?!"  Preorder your copy of Nocturnal and get our FDO back on the NY Times bestseller list.  Not just on the list but at the top of the damn list.

Used socks. He's a practical person, but they do have that fancy gold toe.

Amazing! I bought my copy within the first 20 minutes...on my phone...while working in a factory...

If that isn't testament to how quick and easy it was this time around, I think that's it. Thanks, Back My Book!

Congrats Scott and A, you guys are humming along like a well oiled machine. I snagged The MVP and Nocturnal, easy as pie. If the trend continues you will have sold your first 1,000 of book 7 before book 5 comes out...

To Scott and A - well done.

I thank you both for providing the quality content I enjoy immensely.
