On Friday, my small-town contemporary romance, WHERE SHE BELONGS, started day 1 of a 10 day sale that culminates on Canadian Thanksgiving, which is October 14th. From Friday until then, WHERE SHE BELONGS is just 99 cents. The book has never been available at that price point before. In January, it had some free days with KDP Select (my one and only time in that program), and after the free days WHERE SHE BELONGS cracked the Kindle Top 100 Contemporary Romance list. Well, this weekend, at the 99 cent price point, WHERE SHE BELONGS not only hit the Kindle Top 100 Contemporary Romance Bestsellers, but also the Kindle Top 100 Romance Bestsellers AND the Kindle Top 100 Bestsellers in the store overall! It also climbed the Women’s Fiction charts, making it all the way to #4 for Women’s Fiction-Romance that I know of (what I saw when I wasn’t asleep). It’s still on the Women’s Fiction charts, at #15 for Women’s Fiction-Romance and #46 in Women’s Fiction overall! I’ve fallen off the Romance Top 100 Bestsellers but still have a toehold on Contemporary Romance as I type—at 98.
Over the weekend, I also appeared on Amazon Author Rank’s Top 100 Most Popular Contemporary Romance authors. I’ve fallen off now, so you’ll just have to believe me. 😉
The best numbers that I saw for my book were Saturday morning at 8 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. I have no clue what happened between 10 p.m. Friday night and 8 a.m. Saturday morning, so I can’t claim any #1 spots because I didn’t see them and I don’t know any way to check them after the fact. But here were the numbers for Kindle—I never expected to hit Top 100 Kindle Bestsellers!
– 58 Kindle Paid Store – all genres!
– 17 Romance – In the top 20!
– 13 Contemporary Romance – Top 15!
– 4 Women’s Fiction – Romance – Top 5!
– 8 Contemporary Fiction – Women’s Fiction – Top 10!
– 9 Women’s Fiction – Contemporary Women – Top 10!
I didn’t think to look at the general Women’s Fiction list until late on Saturday, so no idea what was my best number there.
WHERE SHE BELONGS also climbed the NOOK Top 100 Bestsellers, hitting #11 that I saw. And it’s still there, hanging on at #90.
That was something else I didn’t expect. And, guess what? I actually sold some books at Kobo Friday and Saturday! Kobo remains mainly a mystery to me when it comes to book sales, so selling 20 books was very exciting. 😉
