Readers who have been around since we started this project may recall that in the very early days we noted every new country from which orders had been received. It's difficult to remember now exactly why we stopped - maybe it seemed a bit juvenile or maybe we just got too busy, or maybe it was simply when the order-filling responsibilities changed hands. Anyway, it's something we've been meaning to check back on for a while now - and, as the last few days before the new books are released often mean that we have a bit of a quiet spell here at Mega-Headquarters, we thought this was as good a time to do it as any.
We were delighted to note that we have now received orders from twenty-five different countries - which total was reached only recently when an order came in from a reader in Hungary. The full list at the moment is as follows:
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Eire, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Russian Federation, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA
Interestingly we get a lot of hits/reads on the website from the Far East - China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines - which don't translate into direct sales, although it's quite possible that those people choose to buy via Rainbow or AllRomance and use their credit cards rather than PayPal. Alternatively, of course, they could all be robots - we simply have no way of telling!
