Thanks for the kind words, however this was my first novel and I know not what I'm best at. My area of expertise is actually with computers and process improvement so I'm ok if I struck out with my first novel.
I just completed my first non-fiction work, The Art of Process Improvement (showed up on US site today: http://www.amazon.com/Art-Process-Improve
BTW, Coming To Astoria (Growing up in NYC in the 1970's) is available for free today. I'll continue pushing the free version mainly to get some feedback for my own benefit, not to generate sales, which unfortunately hurts the sales of you and others who are talents novel writers (not too much though, since I only get about 50 - 75 downloads). I do apologize for that.
