The reality of how Amazon’s Sales Rank Algorithm affects your book’s chances.

The second it detects no sales or reviews it begins to push your book down the list!

A few days ago my latest novella Autumn 1066 became available for purchase via CreateSpace and on all Amazon outlet’s worldwide. The above graph from Amazon Sales Rank shows where it was positioned yesterday.

The current low ranking clearly demonstrates just how quickly a book will disappear from the public eye if it does not immediately appeal to the always fickle reading public.

A few days ago after its launch it reached the dizzying heights of thirty-two thousandth in Amazon’s Best Seller rankings, and forty thousand, seven hundred and eighty-seventh in the books/History category.

No matter how well written a book may be. No matter how much money you spend on promotion (money that you will never recoup from sales) reality dictates that if the public aren’t interested in reading your book despite it attracting glowing reviews, it begins its descent to the literary equivalent of oblivion, as the above graph clearly shows.
