I just got word a few minutes ago that Tall, Dark & Dead jumped to the #10 spot of BookScan's trade paperback fantasy bestseller list.
I wasn't terribly excited about this until I did a little google research. Salon.com has a very intersting article about how BookScan's figures are tallied. Apparentely BookScan tracks actual books leaving retail stores. Check it out: http://dir.salon.com/story/books/feature/2002/06/25/bestsellers/
There might be champaign in my future.
