My New Addiction

The Amazon sales rank has become my new obsession. I refresh the hwtsam book page at least a dozen times a day. I smile when the numbers go up, and groan when they go down – but when they go down, I keep watching to see if they go back up again.

It’s idiotic – it’s a waste of my time – but I can’t stop. The funny thing is that I think the sales rank number (currently floating in the 32-40k range) indicates that we’re selling just a few copies a day (although as of this posting, we’re the #3 book in software testing).

If you have already received your copy, we’ll still waiting for our first review. Good or bad, we’d love to hear what you have to say.

And if you don’t have a copy, what are you waiting for?

    As a fellow author, I can relate to how you feel about Amazon sales ranks.  I’d suggest using TitleZ:

    It won’t cure the obsession, but it will make it easier.
