Whew! I have to tell you these past couple of months have been mind boggling! Anyone who has ever undertaken a big project can probably attest to the fact that, when it's over you just want to curl up somewhere and re-group by yourself.

That's how I feel about this Best Selling Author Day. While working on this project, I came across some interesting facts and figures.

Did you know there are a little over 4 MILLION BOOKS on

The highest I was ever ranked was a little more than 15,000(since the book was initially released in June)

Currently my rank is 47,452. Rankings are computed hourly so it would be smart to have everyone purchase your book between a certain time of day or evening to ensure a good ranking.

A book that sells well but was released in 2000 won't move much in the rankings but a newly released book (less than a year) can move up quickly. The strategy appears to get customers to purchase copies "daily" leading up to your own promotional day.

My book sat dormant on Amazon but sold well on my website until I started working on this promotion. I was sitting at 1,622,304 on MONDAY---just this past Monday. Now it's at 47,452.

The #1 best seller right now is a book Oprah promoted on her show about a month ago. It's been #1 ever since. As a matter of fact, he held the TOP 3 spots for about a week.

The highest ranking female author is Martha Stewart at #9...followed by a woman named Debbie Ford at #13.

Peace & Blessings,

Beverly Mahone
