Amazon rankings will drive a writer nuts

May 10, 2013

Are you one of those authors who spend far too much time checking your rankings on Amazon or Barnes & Noble?

Fear not. It’s perfectly natural.

We all want to be successful as writers, make a lot of money and so forth. But try not to become obsessed about how your book or books are faring.

Easier said then done, I know.

But think about this. You check the rankings, and the next thing you know, you’re looking at other books on Amazon. And then, forty-five minutes or an hour have flown by – time you could have spent writing that next book.

Ah yes. Writing. Why weren’t you spending that precious time doing that, or perhaps, marketing one of your books?

Have a great day.
