My short story collection bounces in and out, and it doesn't take many sales to crack the 100 in its categories, but hey, why not?

Paranormal Reality: Investigating Paranormal State was actually at the 9,398 mark earlier but the numbers changed! Still, it's nice to see it ranked like this amongst Kindle as well as those paperback and hardcover books!  :)

Nell,

I agree. It's not necessarily about slipping off lists. There's something else afoot.

My current rankings are:

# Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #288 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

    * #17 in Books > Romance > Romantic Suspense
    * #55 in Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Romance > General
    * #16 in Kindle Store > Books > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Romance > Romantic Suspense

Two of those categories are replacements for my usual...

#2   in Books > Romance > Time Travel
#13 in Books > Romance > Vampires

Okay, I admit I don't have much competition, but since Amazon placed it in this category, I guess it counts. In honor of April being National Poetry Month, I am pleased to announce that my first volume of poetry, "New Beginnings", has made it into a top 100 list! (It also received a very nice 5 star review!)
