Amazon Ranking


I just have to rant a little about Amazon's ranking policy, if there is even one. Last Friday, I checked the rankings, as every new author does I'm sure, and it said we were like 2,346,000 in the rankings. Ok, not good, hoping it would get somewhat better with all the advertising we've been doing. And then, this morning, I checked again...177,000!!! WHAT?? Ok, now I am really confused! How can a ranking go from 2 million to 177,000 in 3 days??

Mind you, I am not complaining in the least, but I am very confused and wondering if there is a mistake somewhere. I mean we have 408 fans on F.B., but I don't know how many of those have actually bought a book, or if they did, if they got it from Amazon.

Still, I would love to be ranked higher, especially with all the fantasy books out there that are major competition.

In the meantime, I guess I will continue to monitor Amazon...I am still waiting for reviews to be posted, so those who have bought a book and have read it, please let us know what you think on Amazon.

Thanks and happy reading!

  1. Hello there! I was just reading a thread on I saw you had posted that you really done well with long ridge writers group & said it was all worth the money.

    The thing is, I have been thinking about enroling for a few years, passed the test & all but recently I decided it was for me & I was going to sign up so Ive been reading people's reviews about it & heard it was all awful & most people dont ever make it anywhere with the program.??

    I wanted to ask you (if you dont mind) Is it really worth it? Im so frustrated trying to figure out if its a good idea. & I would really love to hear what exactly you thought about it. Did you come into anything that was problemsome?

    Anyways, thanks so much. & the crystal lock sounds great! Ill definetly check that out. You can write me back at my blog or email
