I'm selling more books than Stephen King right now.
Kindle E-Books to be even more specific.
And I have been for about a month now since THE INNOCENT broke the Amazon Kindle TOP 100 and settled into the TOP 10 where it's been holding under the No. 5 spot for more than two weeks.

You with me here????

Believe me when I tell you, I am super proud of this accomplishment. So is my indie publisher, StoneGate Ink. But here's where it gets a little sticky for me. When I look at The New York Times Bestseller list for "E-Books," it lists the first two bestsellers, The Lincoln Lawyer, followed by Water for Elephants, but then it skips me and lists The Land of Painted Caves as next in line...far as I can tell, "Painted Caves" doesn't appear anywhere on the Amazon Top Ten.

What am I missing here?

As much as Amazon would like us to think they're the only game in town, there are a number of other places that sell ebooks.  It's possible that the Times is getting more information than just what's hot on Amazon's website.

The hard numbers are the only ones that really matter. If Amazon says you're at the top, then you are.

Obviously you're missing the part about not being a member of the right boy's club.
