David,
It makes me feel good to have had a part in this book, however I cannot take all the credit for it. I simply encouraged Hermann to record his war experience and then with the help of my son, we translated it into English incorporating photos, maps and providing background info for the reader. The credit goes to Hermann Frech for being willing to tell his story for the first time.

There are many great stories - until they are told in a way the public will read - they are just stories.

On your PR stuff, you can put "best selling author" and anything else you can pick up from Amazon.

The top authors stay on the bestseller's list for weeks and months at a time. Not so for small-press published books, so enjoy it while it lasts, Abe!

Once you are a "best seller," in my opinion you remain a "best seller." Whether for a minute or a month....who sets the limits on what period of time is a "best seller??

That can be carried to the ridiculous but then one would be found out. My novel, Arirang, was on the top ten list for travel books on the Dominican Republic for a long time...but that was about the sixth tier of the Amazon categories. Somehow, that didn't strike me as "best seller" status.

A Myth in Action remained in the top three, often making it to #1, between 2007 and 2009, of all books in print on Audie Murphy.

Of course, there were only about ten to twelve books total about him in print during that time. Very Happy

Abe, thanks for giving me the chance to read the book while you were finishing your work on it.

It most definitely deserves to be a best seller, no matter how many might be in competition with it.

This may not last long, and by the time you check it out, it may have disappeared, but the book has crept into a top 100 bestsellers list on amazon.co.uk:

A five-star review for On the Way to Siberia:

http://www.amazon.com/On-Way-Siberia-ebook/product-reviews/B0076B2P9U/

"5.0 out of 5 stars Review and opinion by Doug Long, April 1, 2012
By D. Long - See all my reviewsThis review is from: On the Way to Siberia (Kindle Edition)
Hermann Frech was a lucky guy to have endured such unbelievable carnage in WWII and eventually emerge from the fighting with his sanity and humanity. His story is a painful recount of the years spent as a teenage soldier in the Third Reich, a duty thrust upon him without choice. I recommend this book to anyone interested in a real account of a teenage boy and his fight to stay alive in 1945."

Getting praise from fellow authors is more gratifying than from Amazon.
Thanks.
