“As Life Goes: Elementary” is at a three month high

“As Life Goes: Elementary”, which I recently discounted to $0.99, is hitting some higher than normal seller ranking numbers:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank:
#10,253 Paid in Kindle Store
#322 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Contemporary
#512 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Contemporary Fiction > Romance
#1949 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Contemporary

With the planned release of “As Life Goes: The Reunion” slated for this summer, this pop up in the ranking is very encouraging.

“As Life Goes: The End of the Innocence” has been doing decently on and off as well so I am looking forward to great things from this series.

My first book of the “I, Hero” series smashed through its highest prior place in the Amazon Sellers rankings. The screen shot directly below show a little after that peak (in the 10,000s) but I captured the high spot off my DETAILS section from the book:

About I, Hero: Nathan Returns
Nathan Returns

Nathan is back in New York City; the place where it all started, nearly one year later. While he has been away, he has been establishing a base of operations and trying to follow the direction his life has taken – making a difference and answering the call for help where and when he is needed.

He has returned to this birthplace of his powers with more questions of why he is on the path he is on and what is expected of him.

During a dangerous rescue, his powers dissipate, and leave him critically vulnerable.

He connects back with old friends who help him rediscover the man he used to be to in order to help him be the man he has become and the man who he must be.

Magical forces come into play, pulling on nature itself, which introduces an unexpected challenge to Nathan while he is at this perilous juncture.

The pendulum swings even farther out of alignment; it is up to Nathan to respond before forces are set into motion that cannot be countered.

Another Sunset – Amazon Best Seller Rankings – other all time highs fall

A little earlier this evening (well, I guess yesterday now that it’s after midnight) I posted “Another Sunset – Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #26,907 Paid in Kindle Store – That’s an all-time high” and since then I’ve had records fall in other categories.

Clearly I’ve had a good sales day and as I commented in that other post “I know a lot of people will say “don’t pay too much to the ranking” but to be honest it’s about all I have other than sales and I have no idea how I should gauge sales.”

Having said that, when I can look at my position versus all the other books on Amazon I can justify feeling pretty good about my ranking.

Another Sunset – Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #26,907 Paid in Kindle Store – That’s an all time high

Since the print release of Another Sunset in November of 2014 and the Kindle version in December I’ve been all over the place in the elusive Amazon rank.

I know a lot of people will say “don’t pay too much to the ranking” but to be honest it’s about all I have other than sales and I have no idea how I should gauge sales.

I’ve sold 191 books since November 24th when the print books released; that was 133 days ago.

Is 191 books sold (actual cash received for them) a lot for 133 days in release or not for a first time work of fiction?

I have no idea. But I CAN get an idea that I am #26,907 Paid in Kindle Store (at least for today) versus about a million other books.

So in general, I am excited and I wanted to share. I celebrate many peer victories like this; I expect they will join me as I do my happy dance today.
