This made me laugh. It doesn’t take much to climb the Bestseller Rankings for the Amazon.co.uk Kindle Store, it seems. Yesterday ASCENSION POINT was languishing at #251,110. But then…
SOMEONE BOUGHT A COPY.
Yup–it’s stormed up to #30,554 on the back of that single sale. You have to assume that it takes a few more sales than that to be ranked in the top, I don’t know, ten thousand. But it’s still nice to see the line going upwards 🙂
Early days, folks. Early days.

Where’s the day I bought a copy? Or does it take that long to come to you? Does it tell you when someone downloads a sample?
Ah, so this is just the UK store. Weirdly, Amazon report separate sales and rankings for all of their stores, so yours went to my US rank/sales. I had a nice bump from ~#380,000 to ~#100,000 there 🙂
Awesome!!! That’s 2 this month, great progress!
This sales thing is surely a fundamental flaw in your marketing strategy, Dan. You have to sell twice as many copies to get into the bestseller charts! It’s like playing X-Com on Classic Ironman. Or not reloading FM when you lose a game…. x

That’s not something anyone’s ever said before 🙂
