I stayed up late last night. Like really late. In my defense, I tend to be a night owl. Also, I was writing, and when you're on a roll, you tend to want to keep at it. So at approximately 3am, I decided to check out where Craving stood as far as paid purchases are concerned through the Kindle store. I've been ranked anywhere from about #30,000 clear up to above #200,000 (and as high as into the 2 millions for paid paperback). When I saw I was ranked at #27,555, I was pretty happy. To my knowledge, that's the highest it's been ranked, and, for the record, that's out of millions of ebooks available in the Kindle store.
But something else caught my eye:
That's right! I made my first ever top #100 ranking! Now, I didn't set erotica as a category, and I personally don't think just two descriptive sex scenes qualify it to be classified as erotica, but, damn it, I'll take it!
If I had not stayed up late writing, I wouldn't have seen this, and may have never known it happened. By this morning, I had fallen to #98, and am probably out of the top #100 by now. Just makes me wonder if I was any higher than #71 to begin with...
