TEPID: Only a day after its release, Ann Leckie's heavily promoted paen to feminism and tea parties, Ancillary Mercy, has already dropped to #27 in Amazon's science fiction books and #36 in science fiction ebooks. Despite massive promotion by the usual CHORFs, Ancillary Mercy sales are now trailing The Spears of Laconia (Purge of Babylon, Book 7) by Sam Sisavath, 2287 A.D. - After Destruction: A POST-APOCALYPTIC NOVEL (The Chronicles of Ashlyn Parker Book 1) by G. Van Dyke, and Alien Alpha: (Qetesh Warrior) An Alien SciFi by Juniper Leigh in both categories.
In other news, Leckie encouraged her fans today to buy her line of specialized teas named after parts of her novels.
