I wanted to send out a quick note to thank everyone that voted and felt my story was deserving of your scores.

I had a lot of fun writing it and, even though it doesn't have cheerleaders in it, I think it's a good read.

I want to also congratulate the other entrants. Good job!

I have to say I love the British. They have dark sense of humor. The video in this article could be the basis of a great book (offering to the world before I have to write it). The comments at the bottom are pure British Humor.

Canoe Story

In today's chapter I tell a story about a canoe adventure that about get's my character's family killed. That is an actual story from my childhood. When our canoe shot into the woods and hit a tree head on I thought we were dead. The canoe swung around and the back hit another tree pinning us. We had to tip the canoe on its side so the water didn't roll in. I can laugh about it now...

My dad thought that if you didn't almost die on an adventure you weren't living.

The rankings continue to climb. I can only assume it is because you all are checking out the book on Amazon.

#12 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Teen & Young Adult > Humor
#18 in Kindle Store > Kindle Short Reads > Two hours or more (65-100 pages) > Teen & Young Adult
#28 in Books > Teens > Literature & Fiction > Humorous

Here is the funny story: I got the idea for Sell Anything On Craigslist! and didn't have time to write it. I thought it had potential and didn't want to just put it on the back burner so I approached writers I respected on SOL and offered them the book idea.

I obviously wasn't very good at selling the vision because none of the five wanted to write it. Looking back I am glad they turned me down. It turned out to be a quirky fun story to write.
