Edmund Batara (soloflyte) Hi. Here's a query. Has any Filipino author, in any genre or subgenre, reached the top 10,000 BSR mark? Or attained an author rank of 5,000 up in the Amazon global market?

12.31.17 - no answer yet. I was hoping somebody who has been in Goodreads for
a while would have some information.

Abdul (juramentado) | 55 comments Hello! Sorry, I'm not sure if there are. Miguel Syjuco is a possible candidate. Not sure if Samantha Sotto also achieved that.

Edmund Batara (soloflyte) Thanks. Checked Syjuco' ranking - it's a 2010 publication. Ilustrado.

Samantha Sotto's Love and Gravity (February 2017) stands at -
#260,551 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
#852 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Romance > Time Travel
#1060 in Books > Romance > Time Travel
#1318 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Magical Realism

Was hoping there would be more than 1. Have checked other Filipino authors on kindle. Most current ones are in Romance but the ranking is in the 500,000 and above.
