I received a nice 5-Star review on Amazon for my novel, WHEN I FALL IN LOVE. It’s always nice to get those. Helps balance out the less-than-stellar reviews that come your way and makes you feel good for a few hours. A couple of people also bought the book which improved the rankings on Amazon.
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #58,029 Paid in Kindle Store
Fifty-eight thousand may sound like a lot but this book has been up in the 800,000 range before so #58,029 is good. It used to be great but now I compare my results to THE OUTER RIMS.
Update on THE OUTER RIMS …
When my dog gets me up at night to go outside, for some reason I feel the need to check the rankings for THE OUTER RIMS on my iPad.
If I’m doing well (is this personal?) I lie in bed and think what it must feel like to be on Amazon’s front page as one of the top sellers.
If I’m doing poorly (definitely sounds personal) I lie in bed and try to come up with promotion ideas for the book. This is not the way to a good night’s sleep but sometimes the ideas are really good. I mean a YouTube video of me singing the basic plot while dancing would certainly go viral and lead to many sales. Don’t you think? Well, it sounded like a good idea at three in the morning.
I’ve included a copy of this morning’s ranking below but I want you to know that it was better at 3:30 a.m. when my dog went out.
