Old is New Again

A strange thing happened yesterday, one that has me scratching my head in puzzlement.  Sunday afternoon, I was piddling around and had the urge to check on sales rankings on my books.  I hadn’t checked in several days because they had been steadily falling over the last month and honestly, I sort of forgot about checking.

Around 2 p.m. I pulled up my stats and expected to see the trend to be downward. Imagine my shock to see not just one but four of my books were experiencing an upward trend. Out of them, Protecting Joselyn looked to be the biggest jump so I decided to investigate closer.

The last time I checked Joselyn, it was showing in the sixties as far as Kindle World Romance and somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000(ish) overall.  Yesterday it had taken a huge leap to 11 in Kindle World Romance and 767 overall.

Over the course of the next few hours, I continued to watch as she slowly crept up the ladder until around four this  morning, I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer.  I took a screen shot and passed out.  At that time she had peaked at number 2 and had pushed her overall number to 349.

New Surge Comparison

As you can see from the above captures, she has surpassed her original new release.  She has also surpassed every release I’ve ever had.

This morning when I got up, she had slid back to 3rd.  I don’t know if she will go back up.  I don’t know if she will finally touch that number 1 spot.  If she does, ya’ll will probably hear it where you are.

I have no idea what spawned this surge but I know it wouldn’t have happened without my friends and readers.  So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.  Ya’ll did this – not me and I love you for giving me this.

Until next time – Stay safe and read on!

Melissa was born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised in a small rural town. She found a love of reading very early and quickly devoured everything she could. In the fourth grade she discovered a multitude of worlds when she received her first library card. Told repeatedly that she had a wonderful imagination, she turned to scribbling her musings and wrote her first novel while in college. It wasn't until after her fortieth birthday that she began to write in earnest. Her first book, Shattered Dreams, was self published and was soon followed by two sequels. Melissa now resides in Meridian, Mississippi with her supportive family - husband Robert and daughter Rebecca, two cats, and a precocious Chihuahua. When she isn't writing, she spends way too much time communicating with her online friends from around the world and feeding her ravenous appetite for the written word.
