#1, #4, and #5 is something I never thought I would see! It only took ~75 downloads to reach that ranking. Now, fingers crossed, some of those readers will become buyers – I think the conversion is 5-10% – and they’ll tell two friends, who will tell two friends… Free Kindle version: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B083Y6DPLY
