The Dragoneers and The Hobbit, peers?

During the give-away promotional of The Dragoneers: The Chronicles of Susah Book One on 21 Dec, for a little while there it appeared as if The Dragoneers was tied with The Hobbit. The reality was: The Hobbit was 5th in “Paid” books and The Dragoneers was 5th (eventually moving to 4th) in “Free” books. Plus The Hobbit had 2000 more customers comments. Could it have been because JRR Tolkien has an initial advantage over CD Sutherland?  Maybe, but most probably it is because The Dragoneers was just published in November of this year–The Hobbit is already an established Epic Fantasy classic.

The Dragoneers is currently standing at slightly less than #8000 against the million plus Paid Books at Amazon.  Yesterday, over 2000 ebooks were placed into the kindles and kindle software of people in the United States, United Kingdom, and Denmark.  As the customer comments start coming in the weeks follow, we may be able to decide if The Dragoneers will ever measure up to the great classic, The Hobbit.
