Amazon Author Ranking

Today, I received an e-mail from that told me that authors can now see a list that ranks them among all of the authors on Amazon.

This strikes me as similar to offering a free home demonstration of trepanation. There’s technically nothing wrong with it and it’s certainly not illegal and in a few instances, it might actually be helpful, but for the most part it’s totally unnecessary and everyone who does it will get hurt.


  1. Perfectly – and humorously – said. I’ve been noticing my Facebook news feed of authors and have yet to see someone thrilled with this new idea.
