APRIL 24  NAVARONE MAKES CHART DEBUT

The Making Of The Guns Of Navarone makes it debut on the Amazon Kindle Film Books Chart at No 74. How weird is that? It's not even officially published yet. The reason for that is that, unlike with a printed book, you cannot specify an advance publication date for a Kindle book. The day you upload it is the day it is published. In order to take advantage of publicity surrounding the launch, we had to get upload it a week in advance. People must just have spotted it online and bought it. Whoever you are, many thanks. You are the official first customers of Baroliant.
