Self-publishing enthusiasts may be concerned to note that only two self-published ebooks appear to figure into the various rankings in the first week’s outing for the DBW list.
In the Top 10 breakout for ebooks selling at $0 to $2.99, Sarah’s Surrenderby Lynda Chase is ranked No. 5 on this breakout scale (No. 26 on the main list).
In creating its new list, DBW acknowledges the guidance of:
- industry consultant Mike Shatzkin;
- Agent Simon Lipskar;
- Book Industry Study Group’s Len Vlahos; and
- Bowker Market Research’s Kelly Gallagher.
