Did anyone else have anything weird happen to their sales prior to the holidays? I ask because my sales went from a steady upswing to almost non-existent.

One story really got my attention. (Humping My Daughter's Roommates (Daughter's Roommate Series)) It's part of a series that I was promoting one story at a time via giveaways. I'd already seen a story from a prior promotion peak out around a 4,000 ranking, then gradually give way to consistent sales of around 10 a day.

Gradually.

Not so with the drop in sales that took place six weeks before Christmas. Humping My Daughter's Roommates was consistently performing so well that I suspected it would become my best-selling story. Then it went from 25 sales a day to three or four in a twenty-four period, eventually drifting to zero sales as Christmas grew closer.

Has anyone else seen sales for a good selling story just shut down in the space of 24 hours?

I think it's odd, especially since it looks like sales are starting to pick up again. I guess one explanation might be that people quit buying erotica during the holidays, but the sudden drop in sales makes me question that theory.

Thanks in advance for your response.

I had the same thing happen to me when I came out of select. My first book in the series disappeared from Amazon & it also disappeared from all the customer who bought this also bought section. A day later it was back up but I had lost all my customer who bought this feature and sales took a while to pick back up because of this. Did you check at the time if your book was still for sale?

I've had stories abruptly tank.

One theory:
Story had been enjoying a cozy also-bought spot on another popular book's page, then the deck got shuffled somehow, perhaps by the other key book going free?

Another theory:
Amazon hates to see me do too well.
