Just curious what is known about this. I just received a book recommendations list including... me. Which was kind of funny, but has me wondering, this must be a mailing list so Amazon must have recommended me to other people, yes? If this is so, and has happened to anyone else, did you get a sales spike? Not of critical importance or anything... just curious.

Those recommendations are based on your own viewing and purchasing habits. I get emails ALL THE TIME asking me to buy or review my own books. I don't believe they go out to dedicated mailing list. More like automated, customized individual emails.

I have two Amazon accounts (mine, and the one I use for work). I have NEVER seen an indie book in my work account emails (though for some reason I DID get the artisan bread book ad once. :p) I see indie books all the time in my personal account. Those emails are based on your viewing and purchasing habits tied to that account.

Sometimes after a new title's been up for about two weeks, I'll get a little spike one day. I believe it's an automated Amazon email, but I've stopped buying my books to check the formatting, so I'm off the list as a fan of myself. I guess you should try to buy everything of yours, but not immediately, in the hopes of getting these emails? Or not.
