Why are my newly published Ebooks not in the New Releases?

I went to the ebook new releases for the last 30 days to see if my ebooks that I had published on Friday were there. Nope, nada, zip, zilch... So is this list only for traditionally published books?

I wouldn't be upset if it said NEW RELEASES FOR TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED EBOOKS - but it doesn't say that-- it simply says New releases.

I know I shouldn't get upset at something so simple, but I wonder if it is a simple mistake or something more complex. And how does someone find my ebooks if they aren't on a single list? And, is anyone else having the same problem?

Yours, Cyn

Just to add to the above - I am very pleased with most of the service I get from kindle - I just find the above question perplexing.

I think that's something big name publishers pay for. Perhaps any of us can pay for that. I'm sure it's a premium price for that service.

I am beginning to suspect you may be right. I would like to receive a firm reply from Kindle help though. I do promote on Twitter and FB, but it would be nice if New Releases was part of the service.

My books showed up in the new releases - they appeared in the list on the Kindle Books page when I selected Comics And Graphic Novels and then Last 30 Days on amazon.co.uk

I just checked and they also show up on amazon.com (Kindle Books> Fiction>Genre Fiction>Comics And Graphic Novels>New releases Last 90 Days).

Note that the default order for new releases is Popularity but you can change to Publication Date (I use this regularly to check for new comic releases)

You will also have to select the appropriate genre for your books.

So maybe I am the only one with this problem? I just looked for an ebook I published on Dec 31, 2011 and it is not there in the 90 day new releases. And yes, I checked by publication date. I am feeling a bit disturbed.
