Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Problems at Amazon (Is Amazon counting our sales?)

[ Edited ]

I have noticed a trend at Amazon for book sales in February and January. I will have two or three days where I sell dozens of books and then four or five days where no books will sell. (I have 15 ebooks for sell on Amazon.) I expected February and March sales to decrease after December and January but I did not expect the flash recording of sales similar to what occurred at B&N in December.

 

I understand that sales will fluctuate but I am beginning to suspect it is more than that. It seems impossible that books will sell 'wildly' and then all sales cease altogether. Are they missing sales and then 'peppering' them (later) in without telling us? 

 

Is anyone else noticing something awry with Amazon sales?

You might want to join a writer's group to get the answer.  The B&N forum may not be the right place for this question.  Try kindleboards.com.  There's a bunch of authors there and maybe you can compare notes.
