Not really sure how the figures are calculated, but I watched my book at Amazon’s starting gate with a sales ranking of over #90,000.
That means that 90,000 books had higher sales than Copper Star.
As the day progressed, that number dropped, dropped, dropped…down to #10, 173…meaning that 10,000 books had higher sales.
Hmmm…let me re-think this. It means that Copper Star beat out 3,989,827 books!!! There are at least 4,000,000 books listed on Amazon.
Yep, I like that better!
I have read how authors get obsessive about those hourly rankings. I don’t think I’ll fall into that category…there’s something kind of amusing about it!
But I am grateful for every person who bought (or will buy) my book. And hope you’ll read it!
