I got to No. 3 on the best seller list

My book Trains, Tunnels, Bridges: Icons of Our New Zealand Rail History  is No. 3 on the Whitcoulls New Zealand non-fiction top seller list this month. Cool.

Wright_BestSeller1It’s one of two books of mine released in the last six weeks. Bee Dawson’s book The New Zealand Woman is No. 1 on the same list, and good on her. I met Bee a few years back at a Random House publisher party, and she’s an excellent writer.

Wright_BestSeller2That No.3 spot for Trains joins the general profile that my other new title, the Bateman Illustrated History of New Zealand, has been getting in the stores.

Needless to say, I’m rather pleased by this news.

  8. Brilliant news and good timing, I am sure it will be a popular Christmas purchase as well, I hope the publisher has enough in stock for then! Good idea to bring it out out from under the bushel. :)
