EH Debuts at #1 on American Bestseller List!

We were edified to notice in the Tucson Weekly newspaper that Antigone Books in Tucson, Arizona reports Expat Harem as its #1 bestselling book the week ending May 19.

We presented the book to a crowd of 27 at Antigone on May 1, where one audience member broke Antigone's record for the most copies bought of one book in a single purchase (7 copies). Antigone sold out of their EH stock immediately following our reading, and two weeks afterward we're glad to see that Antigone's customers were still eager for more....

All our thanks to the staff of Antigone, and to our readers in Tucson!
