New Media and New Marketing XVIII

As I mentioned, "The Job" was featured yesterday on, which supports itself by linking to books on Amazon, thereby earning a couple cents every time a customer buys a book through the links. As I reported a couple weeks ago, "The Job" was ranked at about #70 at Amazon in the Christian>Fiction>Humor genre. Well, "The Job"'s performance Sunday vaulted it to #62 in that genre. Woo-hoo!

That's actually pretty good, but here's the other shoe. Confidentially, my sales on Sunday were four books. That's probably a daily record, but still, if four sales can lift a book some 10 places within a genre, what does that say about the genre? So there you have it.

Still, thanks so much to the Cheapskates at DailyCheapReads. Maybe I'll get a review and some word-of-mouth out of it.
