Writers' Cafe / Amazon Sales Rank
« on: March 17, 2017, 11:10:43 AM »
Does anybody see their Amazon Sales Rank chart looking like this?  (This is a hardcover book if it makes a difference.)

I can't figure out if those peaks are single sales or what.  Amazon has been ordering dozens of the books so it's hard for me to imagine I've just sold a few, but I don't know...

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Writers' Cafe / "What's in a blog?"

Hi everybody,

I'm new to all of this.  I'm just now publishing my first children's book, in hardcover and e-book format.  My plan is to put out more if the reception is positive.

I often read the advice that it's important for authors to maintain a blog for their readers.  But what's in the blog?  I can think of easy examples, like say a non-fiction science writer would blog about related scientific topics. 

But I'm just a regular dad, with no special expertise other than being able to invent stories that children like.  I really can't imagine what content I could provide in the form of blog posts. 

Maybe there's someone who was in a similar situation who has some experience to share?

Thanks!
