How Much at What Rank?

When I set book marketing goals, I like to know what I’m aiming for. That helps me decide what to budget in terms of time, money, and other resources.

The following chart is just a ballpark estimate. I started with the Kindle Sales Calculator on Dave Chessons’s site: Kindle Best-Seller Calculator.

Then I added the average net income, per book, for a Kindle book sold in the U.S., and I figured my  numbers from there.

(I’m posting this because I keep misplacing my own copy of these figures. If they’re on my website, they’re easier to find.)

As an Amazon Associate, I may earn a few cents from qualifying purchases. But, I don't link to any products I wouldn't recommend to my mother. Really. And, as an author, I earn royalties from any of my books you choose to read. So, thank you!  Also, Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc, or its affiliates. Your mileage may vary, and - by the way - my favorite ice cream is mint chip, and I often write in my robe and slippers. Aren't you glad you read all this...? lol
