Amazon UK have announced that 15 of the Top 100 books sold on Kindle in 2012 were self-published. This is great news. It’s great news for those authors that have churned out their novel and implemented all of the things that I bang on about every day, but it’s also good news for me because it means it’s possible to achieve a bestseller off my own back.
Nick Spalding has two in the Top 10, numbers 1 and 3, and although he has now signed with Hodder and Stoughton he achieved this success on his own. Apparently there are ten other authors that earned more than £100,000 last year from the UK site alone, and given that the US site is a monster in comparison, I can only assume that these authors had a very healthy New Year’s party.
