Ian Cron’s Latest Book Hits #1 on Kindle’s Memoir Category

Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and MeCOLORADO SPRINGS, CO, August 15, 2012 – Thomas Nelson recently announced that the kindle version of Jesus, My Father, The CIA and Me was chosen as a Daily Deal for Amazon. Cron’s memoir ran on August 9, 2012 and immediately rocketed to the #1 slot in the Memoir, Biography, Christian living and Religious categories. The Daily Deal is a daily low price that raises discoverability in exponential fashion. Amazon promotes the Daily Deal on their website, but it also sends the title out in Kindle tweets and is promoted on all Kindle devices each day. Though Amazon will not release the total number of emails this goes to, their reach on a Daily deal is huge. In addition, thousands of sites re-tweet the Daily Deal messaging.

Cron’s memoir describes a childhood filled with remarkable stories and colorful characters that includes a nearly blind English nanny who teaches him what love means, a simple carpenter who leads him to faith, an irreverent New York radio personality who saves his life, a father who takes his family on a wild ride from the pinnacle of glamour and wealth to the depths of emotional and financial hardship, a beautiful and courageous mother who holds them together, and the hard won peace that comes when we surrender to the “unfinished business of grace.”

In addition to Amazon’s showcase recognition, Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me was also selected as a featured title in the Barnes & Noble (B&N) “Discover Great New Writers” program. Pastor and bestselling author, Mark Batterson writes, “Ian Morgan Cron is a brilliant writer. This is the kind of book that you don’t just read. It reads you.” – LH
