An e-mail I received from Amazon and wanted to share with everyone.
“We have added a new feature, Amazon Author Rank, the definitive list of best-selling authors on Amazon.com. This list makes it easy for readers to discover the best-selling authors on Amazon.com overall and within a selection of major genres.
“Amazon Author Rank is your rank based on the sales of all of your books on Amazon.com. Just like Amazon Best Sellers, it is updated hourly. The top 100 authors overall and the top 100 in selected genres will be displayed on Amazon.com. You can see your Amazon Author Rank trended over time in Author Central.
“You can find your Amazon Author Rank in Author Central under the Rank tab. Historical rank data is available from September 28, 2012.
“We’re always interested in feedback, so please let us know what you think.”
The Author Central Team
“P.S. You may have friends who are authors; feel free to pass this email along to them.
Amazon Author Rank is a feature available to all authors registered in Author Central.”
