Cannot tell you how excited I was yesterday to log in to Amazon.com and stumble (and it was a stumble, too) upon the frankly astounding bit of news that I was the number one (that’s NUMBER ONE) most popular author in their Kindle biographies and memoirs category, and number 6 across all versions of all books. Of course, I’m well aware that it’s mostly only authors who spend any time feverishly checking such stats – tragic insecure folk that we are – but I make no apology for sharing as I’m just too excited. This is a career first for me, after all.
Of course it does help that I have quite a few titles out there currently, and that I’ve had the privilege of ghosting some pretty incredible stories – so huge thanks to all my co-writers and collaborators. Not to mention my incredible agent, Andrew Lownie, and the various amazing editors I’ve worked with, and the incredible readers and, oh Lordy, I should stop right now, shouldn’t I?
Anyway, to celebrate, I did three things.
1. Had the Amazon logo tattooed on my backside.
2. Took a screenshot
3. Finally got my US Amazon Author Page done and verified.
And, yes, one of those was a lie. I had already booked the tattoo and it’s ringfenced for a column…
Anyway, here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/author/lynnebarrett-lee
As you were.
