Self-Published Titles Shoot up E-Book Best-Seller List

Self-Published Titles Shoot up E-Book Best-Seller List  – Digital Book World:

Think it takes a big publishing house or an established author to make a best-seller? Think again.

Two of the top ten best-selling e-books last week were self-published, On Dublin Street by Samantha Young and Down to You by M. Leighton. While these books have sold well for some time, this is their first appearance on the top 25 overall e-book best-seller list.

What ties these titles together — aside from their best-seller status and that they were self-published — is that they’re both “adult contemporary romance” books, meaning that they are romance books not intended for young audiences and contain plenty of sex.

. . . .

Also of note is that both of these titles are priced at $3.99, bucking the notion that self-published best-sellers are priced in the $2.99-or-less range.
