K-LYTICS – Monitoring Data. So You Don’t Have To

K-lytics has been monitoring the mystery, thriller, suspense, and crime fiction categories on Kindle for five years now.

While many traditional publishers compete for this lucrative book market segment, they see a lot of smaller dcategories and niche markets available to indie authors.

Here are three exciting facts from looking at the data right now:

  • Mystery, Thriller & Suspense (MTS) has seen a 5-year upward trend on Kindle
  • MTS holds on to its position of the second highest-selling Amazon bestseller list.

  • All—yes, all— of the sub-categories in the main MTS category showed up in the “green zone” of attractive markets on the K-lytics Book Strategy Map. 100% – Wow!

K-LYTICS announce the release of the latest K-lytics Mystery & Thriller genre AUGUST report.

  • The report also includes Level 4 and Level 5 sub-categories. In total, it examines 137 Amazon Kindle categories.
  • If you intend to do any kind of book project with elements of mystery, crime, thriller or suspense, this report is for you.
  • Find out about trends, sales development, book supply, best categories, covers, top authors, publishers, keywords, price points, and more. The seminar comes with two reports and an explanatory video.

With this data, you will have more market insights than most publishers out there.

How we are doing on our USA Today Bestseller attempt.

I thought you might be interested in how we’re doing on this ambitious attempt at bestseller-dom.

Just a few minutes ago, I checked Amazon, and we’re at:

On Amazon.com – we’re 490 overall in store. Though I seem to recall somebody said at one stage we were at 150.

    APPLE – Hurrah! Managed to upload my box sets :)

    Finally! I’ve done it. My two Rafferty & Llewellyn Box Sets are available on Apple. Phew!

    ‘Contagious Detective Duo.’

    I swear I was cursed with Apple. Whatever I did, there was something wrong with every book I tried to upload. Metadata – wrong. Cover – wrong. Don’t mention the other big ‘A’ – wrong. In fact don’t mention anybody, apparently including your own website – wrong.

    Anyway I’ve finally done it to Apple’s liking. Miracle!

    I really need a lie down now, but I’d better get on and upload the rest of my books while I’m on a roll!

    All about the indie life v traditional publishing: See my article on the storyreadingapesblog

    I wrote an article about my experiences both before and after I took up the indie author lifestyle for thestoryreadingapesblog. I enjoyed writing it and I’ve had some lovely, appreciative comments for my honesty (Rafferty’s family wouldn’t be impressed!). If you’re contemplating the indie life yourself, you could do worse than take a look. Here’s the link:

    New Rafferty & Llewellyn crime novel

    Been working a little on my new Rafferty crime novel this morning. Don’t usually work on Sundays, but I’ve been struggling to set up a humorous sub-plot for this one. I’ve now got one that I think has legs and managed to add eight pages – though not typsescript pages, alas! Shorthand notebook pages only, so it will type up much shorter. But it’s a start.

    The main plot is going pretty good. Still waiting for the witty one-liners to surface. But they’ll come. They always do. All it takes is thinking about the book and the characters. Still can’t quite make my mind up about the murderer. I have two prospects. Must plump for one or the other. Hmm. Anyone out there working on a new book? Post a comment about how you’re getting on. I’d be interested to hear.

    It’s lovely and sunny here (Norfolk, England), so will be going out the garden later to do some more pruning. Place looks like that neighbour’s house who has the rusted car on bricks surrounded by weeds, at the moment, just minus the car. Haven’t had time and my hubby’s been too poorly to do it. We’d get a gardener in to sort it out but funds are too low at the moment to indulge in such a luxury. Waiting for my royalties and several advances. You know the feeling. A Regular paycheck would be nice. Sometimes, anyway. Though having to do the job that comes with it aint so attractive…

    Hope to go down to London next month to stay with George’s son, Mark. He lives in a swish flat in Earl’s Court, which I have yet to see, so I’m looking forward to that. Even though I’m a Londoner, I haven’t been to The Smoke for a few years as my family have all left the capital and are spread far and wide.

    Must go. The pruning shears are calling. Till next time.
