When I left the house earlier, my book Dark Matter Heart was ranked #14 in Free "Teen Horror" and had about 180 downloads for the month. Then, while I was out, Ereadernewstoday picked it up as a free book and now downloads are up to about 900. That's 700 downloads in about 3 hours, however, my ranking is still #14 in free "Teen Horror". What's up?

Mine have been moving up and down throughout the day. So it's not a global issue I wouldn't think, although I don't have anything free right now, so maybe that's no help.

I think it might be a freebie issue. I'm a Bookbub free book today. Was at #11 on the Sci Fi> Hi Tech chart (~3K on the Free list). Had 1500 downloads before my ranking changed...by dropping to #13. Wasn't until just a couple hours ago, after >2000 downloads that I screamed up to the #1 spot. am now at #86 on the Free list. Hoping that's only a partial correction. Would really love to see it get to the top 25.

I just checked and my rank improved. It's fascinating that one sale can catapult a rank from 600k to 100k.

Just checked again and now after 1,000 downloads I've moved to the #10 Teen Horror spot. I do find it hard to believe that the books with lower rankings mine are also selling at a rate of 1,000 over the course of five hours (especially since I've occupied the #10 spot before after only a few dozen DLs per day.)
