Amazon has announced a new feature that is very cool for authors who have books on Amazon. They call it “Amazon Author Rank”. Much like their “Amazon Best Sellers Rank” tool readers can find new books to read by reading these lists. You can use both of these lists to discover what buyers are reading and to get topic ideas for your next book.
Amazon Author Rank is your rank based on the sales of all of your books on Amazon.com. Just like Amazon Best Sellers, it is updated hourly. The top 100 authors overall and the top 100 in selected genres will be displayed on Amazon.com. You can see your Amazon Author Rank trended over time in Author Central.
