Mine! 
I’m so excited.  I’ve been flirting with breaking the 10,000 ranking for a few weeks.  I get close each time, then plummet back down.  Once as far as 66,000.
But I just looked at my rank and it’s down to 7,178!  This is COMING HOME’s sixth week on sale.

Excellent. That's the hardest part. Once you can claw your way into the top 10,000, Amazon will give you some "also bought" love that will help to sell your book for you. With any luck, a few weeks from now you'll be starting a post titled "Guess whose book is in the top 1,000?" :)

Oh, and BTW, B&J Phish Food is the best ice cream every made. That alone should be worth a few sales.

Congrats. You've got a cute cover on that one. :)
Thanks! I'm a single mom and had nothing extra in the budget for a cover and had to make it myself. I'm glad it doesn't look too amateur.

Has anyone (with one or two books - not an established author) gone straight to the top?  What's the fastest rise you've seen?  For example - has anyone released a book and been in the top 5,000 in a few weeks?  Examples?

I released my debut on May 15th and got as high as the 9ks on day one (I sold 11 copies that day). At one point last week I broke into the low 6ks, but sales have slowed down a lot since then so I've been bouncing back and forth between 10k and the high 20's. I think my numbers were week 1= 53 (US) sales and week 2 = 26 sales to give you some idea of what the numbers look like for that. My total US sales since I released are 81 = #14,730 as of right now.

If you're really interested in the exact numbers and rankings, I charted them publicly on my blog every day of the first week. http://wrenemerson.wordpress.com

It didn't take long to make another run, either. I think this one has legs.
