Another Sales Tracking Glitch?

I'm writing this thread because I believe a new sales tracking glitch may have occurred. In the last 10 days I have seen zero ebook sales. This seems highly unusual considering the fact we are in a winter month and long past Christmas. Either book sales are really slow right now or another sales glitch has occurred. I have lost confidence in Amazon's ability to properly track sales. If it's not KENP reporting being off then it's ebook sales. I have not seen such an extended period of no ebook sales in a long time! For the first time my paperback sales exceeded ebook sales in January. Things are really weird. I hope if there is a sales tracking glitch that they will finally fix it!

You sound like me. In the last twenty days, I have finally seen ONE digital book sale.
Things are far from normal.

I agree. Things have totally petered down to nothing. Very annoying.

I haven’t seen a decline.

How long have you been publishing and how many books do you have? Do you advertise?

Yes, I advertise. This is my first book. And I was getting lots of clicks and now? Nothing. Very weird.
