The 7 Year Bitch - An Update

Remember Jennifer Belle and her laughing-in-public ploy to raise book sales? It might be working. On Monday night, after 40 actresses hired by the author had laughed uproariously at Belle’s book all around New York City, The 7 Year Bitch was ranked 13,855th on Amazon. Two days later, the novel has risen just over 800 points in Amazon’s system, clocking in at 13,043rd. There are no new reviews yet, though that’s to be expected—most purchasers, even those signed up for Amazon Prime, won’t receive their copies until today or tomorrow.

Although I haven’t rushed out to buy Belle’s book—I’m not much of a chick lit reader—I’m curious enough about Belle’s style to want to take a quick peek. How about you?
