Bookbub spike so I hope that counts!

The main's a soap opera star so that's why the cover is a little bit actor-y.

My first book, The Importance of Getting Revenge has held the #1 spot in one of its categories for about two months straight now, getting booted out only a couple of times recently due to other book's Bookbub deals. But it always goes right back! For now, anyway...

Its current rankings are:

#1 in Books > Teens > Romance > Romantic Comedy
#16 in Books > Teens > Romance > Contemporary
#16 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Teen & Young Adult > Romance > Contemporary

The bottom two fluctuate on any given day from 8 - 17 or so.

It's done WAY better than I ever thought it would when I first put it up. Certainly never expected to see a "Best Seller" tag above it!

My second book, The Demonic, managed to get to No 1 in British Horror Fiction (still there now, getting me a little orange tag  :D). It did break the top 1000 in the paid store for a while too (getting to the mid 700s).

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #1,225 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror > British
#5 in Books > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Horror > Occult
#6 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Occult

My first novel is still doing okay as well and is currently at No 10 in the same category!

Really pleased with how things are going so far!

Yip. Today's new release from Crystal Lake Publishing is on the Horror Short Stories list:

THIS IS GOING TO HURT

The eleven stories in Ugly Little Things explore the depths of human suffering and ugliness, charting a course to the dark, horrific heart of the human condition. The terrors of everyday existence are laid bare in this eerie collection of short fiction from the twisted mind of Todd Keisling, author of the critically-acclaimed novels A Life Transparent and The Liminal Man.


With an introduction by Bram Stoker Award-winner Mercedes M. Yardley and illustrations by Luke Spooner, Ugly Little Things will be your atlas, guiding you along a lonely road of sorrow, loss, and regret. This is going to hurt - and you're going to like it.

"Todd Keisling is a born storyteller, drawing the reader into artfully constructed narratives that scout the darker end of the literary spectrum with skill and bravado.  A pleasure to read, his stories linger well after the last page has been turned. Excellent stuff." - John Langan, author of The Fisherman

I have a first-in-series that's permafree, and yet according to KDP, the other day someone bought it.  And it was on the .com site, too, and not in a foreign country.   ???

So today the rank is:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #38,050 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Free in Kindle Store)
#62 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Women's Adventure
#93 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Women's Fiction > Action & Adventure

This happened two days ago..  I wish I'd checked the details yesterday to see how high in the ranks it got.

Thanks to finally releasing another book, all six in my Missy the Werecat Series are currently in the top 100 for the Superhero category:

          Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Superhero

Having a Newsletter definitely helped.  Book I is permafree and at #5 in the free category while the other five are in the paid category.

I ran a couple of promotions today.  Clouds of Venus is now #1 in a couple of sub-cats and #141 in the free store overall.





It's possible it was in the top 100 earlier today since that's when the promotion happened, but if it was, I missed it.

Had an impromptu 99 cent sale of my Lantern collection over the weekend. This was better yesterday, but I forgot to post:
