Yay! – and Thank You!

Approximately 23 hours ago, the announcement of my new Western novel ‘went live’ here and elsewhere.  It was, of course, ranked approximately nowhere at the time, since no-one knew until then that it was available for sale.

As of a few moments ago, ‘Brings The Lightning‘ was ranked #730 (paid) in the entire Kindle Store at Amazon.com (out of well over two million e-book titles in the store).  It had also reached the ranks of:

Not bad for less than a full day on the market!  Of course, short-term sales trajectory isn’t as important, overall, as longer-term sales performance.  Nevertheless, this is a great start.  I hope the book’s early success will be sustained.

Thank you so much, everyone, for your support.  As always, it’s you, my readers, who make this possible – and worthwhile!



  1. About 50% done reading after buying yesterday. Great book, reminds me of how much I have missed a good western. Keep up the great work and keep working with that cover artist, I would buy a poster size print to hang on my wall if possible.

  2. Hey Peter;

    Downloaded it and am reading it between wrenching on a Boeing 757. Did I tell you that I love a good western..?

  3. Gonna have to buy this for my dad – he's always enjoyed westerns. And, though I'm not a big western fan myself, I might have to give it a try, too.

  4. Hey Peter;

    I linked your book and blog on a post, hopefully it will pull some interest your way.

  5. @Dan F.: I must look into that. I see no reason why a poster-size print could not be made available. Watch my blog for more information in due course. Thanks for the suggestion!

    @Jacob Tito: I don't think so, unless Larry Correia feels so inclined. It's not for me to say.

    @Timbo: I don't know whether or not Castalia House has any plans to publish the book on other e-platforms. You might want to contact Vox Day directly about that. His blog is at http://voxday.blogspot.com .

  6. I'm not a big fan of Westerns, but I'm a Peter Grant fan :-). I also liked the preview chapter 1 you put up a while ago. I bought a copy as soon as I found out it was available.

  7. Okay, great book. Now the question, we are all asking. When does the next one come out. How do they do in Denver City, do they go on to the west coast. Inquiring minds want to know. Nice change from your sci-fi series'. Own all the books on my Kindle. Thank you.

  8. Bought, read, and reviewed since last night. 5 stars. A great beginning to your branching into another genre.

  9. Just finished it. I've been enjoying your Maxwell saga and your Laredo series, but I think _Brings the Lightning_ is your most engaging work thus far. Looking forward to the sequels.

  10. Peter,
    Finished "Brings the Lightning" last night. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next story. Well done.

  11. Bought, read, and reviewed!

    I could pick a few nits about race relations and a convenient disability (no spoilers) but it was a fast and enjoyable read.

    As I said in my review, Walt joins Dave and Steve as characters I can't wait to read more about.

    Well Done, Peter!
