All time author record in Kindle eBooks –> Romance

With the presale release of As Life Goes: Elementary I had my first title in the Romance genre and category listing on Amazon.

On November 02, 2015 I hit the highest level as an author at a rank of 3,458.

Sales from yesterday and today squeaked me over, just a little, to 3,433, which allowed me to place just slightly higher and closer to #1. An inch or a mile – higher is higher and I’ll take it.

As I outlined in my prior post, “”As Life Goes: Elementary” is at a three month high”, the title and the overall series itself is on a tear.

My own promotion on Twitter and some super assistance from the #RaveReviewsBookClub gang is the bulk of the spotlight focus, that is for sure. If you’re an author and want to get some of that support, JOIN HERE and tell them Jason Zandri / GUNDERSTONE sent you. Even if you’re “only a reader” – the club is a great resource to introduce you to some great (currently) unknown indie author titles.

I am looking forward to some great things with this series and I am planning to have book three “As Life Goes: The Reunion” released this summer (I am gunning for the one year anniversary date of book one – “As Life Goes: Elementary” which would be July 31, 2016).

The further plan would be to release “As Life Goes: The Wedding” before the end of the year (November 27, 2015 was the release of book two “As Life Goes: The End of the Innocence” and presently that is the date I am targeting).

I am planning book five, “As Life Goes: The Funeral”, the final book in the series, for Q1 of 2017.

Thank you so much for following my Facebook author page and my fan page over at Amazon, and of course, this blog – these are the best resources for information on what I have going on and the release dates of my stories.

Thank you for being a great fan and follower!

“As Life Goes: Elementary” is at a three month high

“As Life Goes: Elementary”, which I recently discounted to $0.99, is hitting some higher than normal seller ranking numbers:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank:
#10,253 Paid in Kindle Store
#322 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Contemporary
#512 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Contemporary Fiction > Romance
#1949 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Contemporary

With the planned release of “As Life Goes: The Reunion” slated for this summer, this pop up in the ranking is very encouraging.

“As Life Goes: The End of the Innocence” has been doing decently on and off as well so I am looking forward to great things from this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching and very relevant
By TFLReader TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 3, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

Today’s society is filled with broken homes and transient kids. While divorce was just starting to become more acceptable as I was growing up, it is now the norm and author Jason Zandri has written a very poignant tale of one family’s experience in “As Life Goes: Elementary”. The story of Mark and his son Matthew, who return to Mark’s childhood hometown to start over after a divorce. The struggles of starting a new school and meeting new people are illustrated as are the pains of loss. This is a great story that I became quickly invested in and that I found very easy to relate to. Definitely recommend.

——————————————————————————————–

“Every new beginning starts from nothing. Understanding that you can have everything in the love of one person, isn’t that worth the risk of personal capital? Isn’t that kind of love worth it?” – Diane Wakeford

“Have I ever told you, you’re the nicest boy I’ve ever met?” – Melissa Bancroft

“I will have the friends I want. I don’t care what boy likes me or what boy I like. You’re an awesome friend. I am not giving you up because we’re going to different schools or for any one person either.” – Elizabeth Wellsworth

Mark Sanford returns to his hometown with his son Matthew in tow to rebuild their lives. Recently divorced, and with the mother totally abandoning her parental responsibilities, both father and son are beginning their fresh start together.

Matthew begins to make new friends in the neighborhood and at school while he tries to find his place among people that have been friends with one another for years at elementary school.

Mark takes over the reins of the former family corner store with the help of a young woman looking for work. The ability to love and trust that woman entering his life is difficult for him because of all he has lost. For Matthew, that “first love” is difficult to understand without a motherly influence and with a father that has been deeply hurt.

“You have to let things happen and be there for the ones you care about. When they slip, you try to catch them to break their fall. You can’t always be there for everyone; when you’re not and if they should fall, you help them back up.” – Matthew Sanford.

“Now and for the rest of my life, I want to spend the time trying to make you as happy as you’ve made me.”

“There’s no way to know all things with absolute certainty. If you want to love that much, if you want the chance to be Matthew’s entire world, and have him be yours, you’re going to have to risk everything.” – Diane Wakeford.

The one constant in the universe is change.

Matthew, Tim, Melissa, Liz and the gang come to the end of their youth as they turn eighteen and prepare to leave high school.

Old friends and new come together as their lives shift from the moment they are in to the future that is coming at them.

One love is discovered and then lost. Another is never fully revealed. Others are put forward to stand against the tests of life, time, and circumstance.

At a time of letting go, they do their best to hang on, realizing that yesterday is gone and what they have to look forward to is everything that tomorrow offers.
