*muppet flails*

ATIN 14 LGBT LFI'm not sure if Amazon's new subcategories get the credit or not, but my novel had a sales spike after they added them and ended up in the LGBT literary fiction Top 100 list and has managed to stay there most of the week. :D :D It made it as high as No. 14 yesterday, and I'm hoping that if the sales stay at the same level for a few weeks that it will stay up in the top 20-25. (Right now it bounces up and then slides back to the 30-50 range, then bounces up again with a slower slide down. If it sells consistently at the same level, the slide gets slower and slower. Yes, I know too much about how Amazon's algorithms work.)

Thanks! It was a nice boost headed into NaNoWriMo, when I'm drafting the sequel.

I really think it's the new subcategories — it's much easier to get on the LGBT lit fic list than either the LGBT list or the literary fiction list. LGBT is dominated by romance novels and literary is dominated by BIG names. And tehn every time somebody buys a book, it pops it up higher. It's been on the list all week, and I've matched January, when the book was released, for ebook sales. If I sell any more tonight, October will be my best month to date on the strength of this last week, which is sweet.
