Friday the 13th Promotion – the final results

Okay folks – I just want to thank EVERYONE who ordered a copy of TATTERDEMON – or ANY of my Kindle e-books as part of the promotion. I’m going to leave the price as it is until Sunday – just because I work tomorrow.

TATTERDEMON has really climbed the ranks. After starting at 518,224 on September 8 it has now reached this new level.

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #12,393 Paid in Kindle Store
#88 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Horror > Occult
#98 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Horror > Occult

For those folks who DON’T know – the lower the ranking on Amazon the better. Basically – when the book was ranked 518,224 it was the 518,224th bestselling e-book on Amazon – now it’s almost in the top 10,000.

Unfortunately – climbing those rankings is a little like trying to run up a hill against the wind. The closer you get to the top 100 the more books you have to sell FASTER than any of the other books. So ranking on Amazon is pretty transient for the bulk of we writers.

Time for sleep.

Indie-pub gurus will tell you over and over again – social networking sells e-books.

Me, I say it a little differently.
