Navigating by Intuition in “Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store” (and how I almost missed it!)

Navigating by Intuition in “Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store”

My book, “Navigating by Intuition” is among the top 100 paid books for its category, now at Number 2 for Occult/ESP.

Navigating by Intuition – How to Follow The Signs” has been selling well since I published it on October 1st, 2011.

I check the statistics once in a while and how many books I’ve sold but, not much else.

When I first published the book, I think it was around #176,000 in ranking for paid Kindle books. It started moving upwards within a day or two.

It has been hovering around #60,000 for some time but, I really haven’t been paying attention to the numbers. I figured that as long as it was selling, that was good enough.

Yesterday, I posted an article on my other blog: . (New as of Nov ’11)

The post is an interview with Debra Eve, the author of Later Bloomers. Debra shared an exciting success story about how she became an “accidental” best selling Amazon author with her book, “Later Bloomers.” It’s very inspiring – do read it. (Visit her site too, especially if your a “late bloomer,” for more inspiring stories.)

For some reason I never made the connection that, I too ought to check my category rankings on Amazon, even after posting Debra’s inspiring interview.

It was only today, after purchasing Steven Aitchison‘s new book “100 of The Most Inspiring Movies of All Time,”  a #1 Amazon best-seller in the “Guides & Reviews” category, that I thought to check it. (Steve just published his book today. It’s amazing.)

Had Steve not made this comment about my book: “I just checked out your book. Congrats on high ranking, it looks really good. I bought the UK version of it.” I would have never checked my “high ranking?”

What “high ranking” is he talking about?, I thought as I hurriedly clicked over to the Amazon site.

You can imagine my surprise…..

Apparently, Navigating by Intuition is in the Top 100 for its category!

Navigating by Intuition, Amazon Best Seller, Amazon top 100 Paid Kindle Books

I had no idea.

About a month after I put the book on Kindle I finally “remembered” to take a snapshot of the ranking of the book.

Navigating by Intuition, Top 100 Kindle Book Store, Best Seller

How could I have missed being a top 100 selling author in the Category of Occult/ESP?

Could it have ranked higher at some point? I’ll never know now, I suppose.

I’ll have to write a new book titled: How I Missed Being an Amazon Best Selling Author.

I’m actually thrilled with this news today so, wherever the book was in the past is irrelevant. It’s today that counts.

For everyone who has purchased the book – I want to say a big, big, “Thank you.”

Now I have two reasons to celebrate: Powered by Intuition turned two years old on January 10 and apparently, Navigating by Intuition is a Top 100 Paid book in the Kindle Store for its category at #2 on the list!

For all Amazon Kindle authors and aspiring authors here’s what I learned today:

Do check the statistics in your book’s category. You just never know.

For the most part, I think of myself as pretty smart but, sometimes….I’m as slow as molasses. This is one of those times.

I can only hope my new book, “The Intuition Principle,” does as well. (pre-order your copy here)

I promise to track my next Kindle book, “The Intuition Primer: Practical Lesson to Launch Your Intuition” from the beginning on Amazon!

Have you ever over looked something and felt pretty stupid about it later? Do you have any advice to share about over looking something important?

If you enjoyed this post please do share it. Sharing is the greatest compliment you can give me!

P.S. While you’re here do subscribe to the updates and newsletter and receive the first chapter of, “The Intuition Principle,” as my gift to you.

  1. This really is exciting! I also hope book # 2 “The Intuition Principle,” shoots up to #1
    There may be mant of psychics in the world, but not many can teach and show others how to find their intuition & inner wisdom. It’s a much needed book!

    • Aileen,
      That would be so awesome.
      I have you to thank in part.
      One reason the book is doing well is because of all the great reviews on Amazon.
      Thank you! I really think we can all be our own “psychics” if we learn to trust our intuition.
      It’s very important. I’m going to share something that happened to me many years ago in my next post.

  2. How awesome is that??????????? NICE! Congrats to you! Well deserved! I’ll have to keep a better eye out on mine too, lol. I rarely check those either. HOW COOL! Yay for you!!!

      Yes, I didn’t realize you had one too. I got your book yesterday. I’m very excited about reading it.
      Thank you for purchasing mine too.
      Thank you. I believe we both published our books at around the same time.
      Congratulations to you too!
