Book Author Tip: Joke of the Day


  1. My author rank is 2242; however, Amazon has me in the wrong category, so I believe it should go higher if this is corrected. Do you know where I can find a list of categories? I could not find such a list, although I spent a good amount of time looking.

    (They have me as Business & Investing. It should be Real Estate & Mortgage.)

    Thank you.

    Carolyn – Amazon has categories you can choose from when you upload your Kindle ebooks at, but I don’t know where else to look for the categories (off the top of my head). The Kindle categories are as extensive as the regular book categories. In fact, I’m pretty sure they’re the same.
