A bit of Amazon oddity...

There's an odd little rubric on Amazon.com which asks "What do customers ultimately buy after viewing items like this?"

For "Jin SHei", I get

55% buy Blue Fingers : A Ninja's Tale by Cheryl Aylward Whitesel $9.75
27% buy The Aware (The Isles of Glory) by Glenda Larke $6.99
12% buy the item featured on this page: The Secrets of Jin-shei by Alma Alexander $10.17
6% buy Changer of Days by Alma Alexander $6.99

OOOOkay.

I mean Glenda Larke is a friend and a fine writer, but what's this? People come bouncing onto the "Jin Shei" Amazon page, and then nerly a THIRD of them bounce off to buy a book by someone else entirely? I'm WOUNDED, I am... :)

I mean, even putting the two percentages that DO pertain to me together, and I get more than fifty percent of folks who peer at my book running off to buy something about ninjas instead...? Maybe I should rethink my plots...

Oh well. Tomorrow is a new month. One heaves a deep philosophical sigh and soldiers on (or, if I've learned my lesson here, should that be ninjas on...?)
