Amazon introduced a new feature today called Amazon Author Rank. According to the email they sent:
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.
Overall, I’m at 138,876. But if I look at All Books -> Kindle eBooks -> Fiction I’m sitting pretty at 21,355!
Some people might be discouraged by those numbers. But not me. Everyone starts somewhere. Now begins the march to the top 100!
