    Verb "reckon"

    I have tried to use "reckon" in my sentence. I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    When Peter published his first novel neither he nor his publisher reckoned that it would have such success. Its sales exceeded all expectations.

    How about a comma after novel?
