I’m happy to announce a June list of top self-published books in Kindle Store.
2011 is a breakthrough year for self-publishing. Amanda Hocking became a first well-known self-publisher. John Locke is a first self-published author to join the Kindle Million Club.
Self-publishing is about to become a serious part of digital publishing landscape and it’s good to devote as much attention as possible to embrace it and highlight its best qualities.
The purpose of our lists with top self-published books is to monitor the development of self-publishing and spot major trends, but most importantly – to help discover new self-published titles and their authors.
I’d like the lists to be a useful source of information and will improve them over time. Major change in comparison to April is how lists will be created. Since this edition instead of collecting data from a current ranking (which is being updated every hour), I will use monthly lists, which are displayed in Kindle Store’s Bestsellers Archive. Thanks to that a more representative overview can be achieved.
The data set consists of two tables. First one is a 2011 summary, where all major facts and figures are compared for the analyzed months up to date. So, below you’ll see a comparison of April and June.
The second table is a list of all self-published titles in June’s Top 100 list. You’ll see a position of a book in June as well as in a whole 2011 list.
