Holy crow. DGC is #3 on the Amazon bestseller list!

Wow! I had no idea! I started listing the DGC vol 1 ebook free last month on Smashwords, just to draw more readers to the site, and the free price soon propagated to Amazon’s Kindle Store.

I was amazed to find, though, that the ebook is #3 on the free ebook bestseller list in the gay & lesbian fiction category! (They split the free books and the paid books into separate lists.)

I was so amazed by this I took a screen capture of it. Holy cats. (photo under the cut…)

    And, if I can say so, Daron’s Guitar Chronicles is at least 60 times better than ‘Indestructible.’

      Aww you make me blush!

      The even more exciting thing is that since the jump onto the bestseller list, the traffic here at the DGC website has nearly doubled.

    I just downloaded the free one and got the 2nd one from amazon today .I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading what is here and when the rest become avaliable I will be getting those too .Its really hard to find really good stories with a gay main guy and not have it all about sex.Don’t get me wrong I like that too but I want some story with it.You manage to do both .

    I just finished DGC Vol_1 literally five minutes ago (Read it in two days) Saw the info at the end and logged on. I loved it ! But it also made me a little edgy. It’s so very similar to my own life, Started playing at age 15 in bands (Seattle) in 1980 so much I can relate to with some major differences though. Mainly I never cared if people knew I was gay or not, I just was who I was and basically take it or leave it. But I really just wanted to thank you more than anything for writing something so very refreshing from the mountain of Ugggg out there =) I can’t wait to continue the journey ! It will be the first book I actually will buy from Amazon (Vol_2) that is. I’ve been catching up on years of no reading due to, well… a bit to personal for here.
    Thanks again, you’ve added a vitally needed work of art to literature !!!

      Paul, thank you so much and sorry I didn’t get to answering your comment sooner — I was out of the country and am just getting caught up again now. I’m so psyched you find the story realistic. Daron’s life parallels mine a lot, but you know, just because something was real doesn’t mean it always “rings true” in fiction. I hope you keep reading as the story progresses into the dreaded 1990s. 😉

  • Jeff says:

    I found this on Amazon about two weeks ago (DGC Volume #1). I finished it in no time and bought volumes 2 and 3 and ripped right through them. I love this story and cannot wait for more. I hope Daron and Ziggy can work through their problems and end up together, but if not that is ok too. I just can’t wait for more!

    • ctan says:

      Wow, so glad you’re loving it, Jeff. There’s definitely more to come. I wrote a couple of scenes this week and we’ll get rolling again real soon!

  • Dave in PT says:

    OK, so I read book one…I mean like it was free right? Well I couldn’t stop there…so I bought book 2 (Kindle edition). Now I’ve bought and finished book 3. And it’s clear that there’s got to be more to come. How long to book 4?

    • ctan says:

      I’m hoping to start posting the new stuff at the end of October, but it might have to be Thanksgiving. I’m on the road myself a bunch the next 6 weeks and some other deadlines are in the way! But I’m working on new chapters right now.

  • Cesy says:

    I just read the ebooks, and a friend mentioned there’s also fanart that I missed – do you have a handy summary of all the graphics, or do I need to search back through the chapters online?

  • Raynay says:

    I read the first book free from smashwords, then followed your link and I’m hooked on this web story! I’ve already donated once and will again when I have gotten caught up.
    Love it! BTW Digger’s a douch!
