Book Sales Looking Up

Not sure I will ever figure out Amazon book rankings, but they are fun to follow. Actually I do understand that they are based on the old, “what have you done for me lately,” principle. That means that rankings are by both total sales and sales today, yesterday and this week.

My books have stayed pretty consistent in the top million. Doesn’t sound like much but there are 14,000,000 books for sale on the site. Of those 2,000,000 are eBook only, the other 12,000,000 available as books and many as eBook’s also.

Today I have all three of my books that are available as print books in the top 130,000 on Amazon – wow three books in the top one percent of all books sold on Amazon.
What does all that mean? Not much unless they are your books, then it can get really depressing or really exciting. Today it’s exciting, in a few days I will be back to 800,000 or so, but it is still fun to watch.

In other news, still working on revisions for my historical western, Commitment, wasn’t happy with the original eBook. That book is still available but wait for another week or 10 days and the new revised copy will be available and the book should also be available for the first time.
Still looking good to get my book of Christmas stories in the West published by November 1.

Below see screenshots from today’s rankings. I am saving these until I see better ones, hope it is not too long.
Many thanks to all of you who have taken a look and purchased my books.

Blessed and Thankful.
