A Top five landing

I've been on a roll lately.

Last week, I introduced my 13 E-books that made the best-selling list at Red Rose Publishing.

Today, I'll showcase my eight E-books that found its way into the Top five.

Picking Cotton, How to Cure A Cajun Cold, Catching A Cuban Curveball, Curling Up, Back in Love Again, Listen to your heart, A Christmas Reunion and Christmas Blues all made the top five of RRP's prestigous hot seller list.

Picking Cotton peaked out at No. 2 in 2009 and remains my highest rated ebook ever.

I have a unique way to measure my success as a best-seller E-Book author.

Growing up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama during the 1970's and 1980's, I rooted for the Alabama Crimson Tide football team and watched professional wrestling on weekends.

Another thing that occupied my time was listening to Casey Kasem's American's Top 40 and R&B Top 20 countdown. The weekly music charts came to mind when I began to compile my impressive list of best-sellers.

In my eyes, Red Rose's best-selling list is equal to the R&B charts. The Soul charts was created in 1942 with the purpose of giving African-American artists their own spotlight, for those who didn't make the Popular brand.

Hey, Grammys and American Music Awards are given annually to top R&B groups and artists.

Some of my favorite artists- Ready for the World, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam and Starpoint- never won awards, but that didn't stop them from being legendary.

My ultimate dream is like every author-- making the New York Times' Best-seller list. That's the Pop charts and would be cool to reach!

Bookstrand.com and AllRomanceebooks.com are also impressive lists to make.

At ARE, I became a crossover author and one-hit wonder. Classified Love, formerly at Rebel Ink Press, was ranked seventh on it's best seller list.

Five years ago, I only wanted to get published. I recall pimping Picking Cotton on Gracen Miller's blogsite. Today. I want to make sales and have numerous best-sellers.

Until next time.....
