Numbers Game


If you break down the Amazon ranking by Amazon/books/teen/fiction, King Dork is currently #1.

I've never had anything be number one broken down any old way. On anything. So weird...

One of my favorite parts of your book is the conversation Tom has with the "#3" girl, (can't remember her name), in French class. That is seriously the way I spoke in beginners french, and it's nice to know that it is pretty universal

Dr. Frank, I have a question: why does Tom Henderson never refer to his closest-thing-to-a-friend as "Sam?" He always calls him "Same Hellerman" or "Hellerman," never just Sam, as about everyone else in the world does. Is that to stress how different Tom is from "normal" people, or is it to make sure no one would confuse him with Samwise Gamgee from LOTR?

I would like to add the fact that pictures of cute girls reading your book is not a bad perk.

I agree with Mark. In the next edition you should put a sticker remarking "The book most read by sassy chicks!"

I got my signed copy from Little Type today. I don't know why I was surprised to see it signed "Frank Portman" and not Dr. Frank. I suppose it is your name.
