My 3rd book, Wickedly They Dream will be released on November 5th, and I wanted to step up promotion. Not only for the new book coming out, but for my books already published.
I don't know how author's get a best seller unless they dole out lots of money for advertising.
Like most of my fellow author's I've had book tours, a couple of book signings, giveaways, and begged for reviews. I joined books clubs and programs on Goodreads for exposure to help promote other authors.
So this time I did boost a few posts on FB, and I actually took out a few ads in some daily book promotion sites. (which far surpassed my royalties) I planned on keeping my eyes peeled to see what kind of sales are generated.
Now I have a 99 Cents sale going on in conjunction with an ad which began yesterday. And this morning, instead of the Amazon ranks going lower, it's spiking higher.
For no reason that I can figure out, last week one of my books went from 1m on Amazon down to 83k, and I can't figure out why. I chuckled and said someone must've purchased an ebook!
How do author's keep their books ranking?
I don't understand Amazons Author Central's ranking system. What I see and what the public sees are two different things? Anyone figure that one out?
