Million Dollar Milestone … by Darla Luke
There are milestones that should be noted, especially in this industry. One is, of course, a book making it to the USA Today Best-selling Books list.
Another is being the first self-published author to make ONE MILLLLIIIOOON DOLLARS (um, yes – that was my very bad impression) through Barnes and Noble’s self-publishing arm PubIt! Author Barbara Freethy has distinguished herself by reaching that milestone in October. According to her blog, she passed the million dollar mark at Amazon.com a few months back. She is also the first self-published author to have sold a million on both platforms. Wow!
Let’s celebrate Barbara Freethy’s notable milestone! As the saying goes, ‘A rising tide lifts all boats’. Here’s to Barbara’s tide lifting us all 🙂
Here are the self-published books that reached the USA Today Top 150 Best-Selling Books list through the week ending Sunday 10-28-12*:
Naked by Raine Miller (Self-published via Amazon Digital Services). This week #58 (last week, not on the list) $2.99
Love Left Behind by S.H. Kolee (Self-published via Amazon Digital Services). This week #91 (last week #39) $3.99
*I’m human and make mistakes (a shock to my friends, I’m sure!). If there’s a book on this week’s list that I missed, please let me know. If I misspelled/mistyped an author’s name or book title, I’m extremely sorry.
