BESTSELLER STATUS? OR NOT?

Well , I don’t know. Confused or what? I proudly boasted in my last post about being on Kindle’s Bestseller List. and I was. But I’m now wondering if these lists actually have anything to do with sales.
According to my own data, Down Among the Dead Men is currently selling poorly, yet according to kindle’s Bestseller List, it’s selling better than my other two, who both  trail DADM. Yet Dead before Morning has always been my bestseller according to amazon’s KDP accounting and Death Line, which was published on 20 March, is a better seller in April than DADM. What am I to make of this?
Are the Bestseller Lists so much hogwash and do they periodically switch the Lists around so as to give every author a taste of Bestseller status? Was it Buggin’s Turn when mine featured on the List?
 
I wish I knew. Any comments if you have experience of this would be gratefully received.

Death Dance Book Trailer – Wow! I did it!

Much to my amazement, technophobe that I am, I actually managed  to post a video to my blog. It’s pretty short and basic, lacking refinements like music or commentry, but it’s not bad for a first stab at it.

Have now become cocky and have also created a book trailer for Down Among the Dead Men. This is coming out as an ebook on kindle and other ebook formats. Originally published by Macmillan in 1994, it is the second in my Rafferty & Llewellyn crime series. I’m still tinkering with the video and will put it up shortly.

Memo to self: Do not post everywhere you have an account! Need only do it once and click for other postings. I’m learning, you see. I started off a few short weeks ago, not knowing how to set up a blog, how to make a video, how to post same on YouTube and now look at me! 🙂
